I just purchased my first Vitamix
so I've been experimenting up a storm, which comes in handy when you're procrastinating... anyhoo here is an insanely simple ice cream recipe and since it's sooo good for you, unlike that stuff sold by the junky big box grocer up the street, you can eat it for breakfast!
1 pint of frozen organic strawberries OR peaches OR bananas
1/4 cup of organic raw macadamia nuts (no soaking needed. Yeeess!)
1-2 tbsp sweetener** i.e. honey, maple syrup (tsk, tsk rethink the white sugar
1 cups of filtered water
Blend mac nuts and water until smooth and milky, add frozen strawberries and blend on high until you hear the sound of the blender change, you'll know it when you hear it. At that point you should have a frozen ice cream. If not toss it in the freezer for a bit, you don't want to over blend as it will just melt.
Alternatively you can just blend up strawberries with a touch of water (to get things started), they're one fruit like bananas that have a creamy texture and can be blended or juiced frozen with sorbet like results!
*okay it's not reeealy ice cream but think of some of the products sold that are called "dairy", gross
**in Ontario strawberries are in season
in from June to early September, you may not need added sweetener in these months
