This recipe is perfect for dinner parties, lazy afternoons in the sun or BBQ’s. I really love the fact that it takes only 2 ingredients and 10 minutes (max) to make. The quick ice cream is also sugar-free and no-churn. Are you sold yet?
If you use tart fruit in this recipe then you will need to add a sweetener. You could add a tablespoon of pureed apples or pears. I instead use 3/4 berries and 1/4 ripe mango which is beautifully sweet and freezes very well. I peel and cut the mango into small chunks the same size as a raspberry. Summer berries are just coming into season in Ireland so watch out in the “yellow sticker” sections for overripe berries as they are the most sweet. Give them a quick rinse or a dunk in vinegar then freeze in sandwich bags.
No churn, sugar-free, 10 minute ice cream. Quick and healthy!
Ingredients (serves 2) • 250g crème fraîche (full fat works best but low-fat also works) • 140g frozen fruit
Method You will need a food processor, stand mixer or an electric whisk for this as it’s too hard to blend them together by hand. In a large bowl, pour in the crème fraîche and start whisking on low. Add the frozen fruit bit by bit. It will get a bit “clunky” so increase the speed to just below medium and whisk until you see the mixture beginning to take on the texture of ice cream. The berries will break down in the mixing process. You can now serve the quick ice cream OR you can spoon it into a heat-proof bowl with a lid and freeze it for another day. It lasts for about 30 days in the freezer providing you’ve well insulated the bowl. Personally I serve it straight away with added berries on top for texture. If you were feeling particularly bold you could have it in an ice cream cone but I’ve been known to eat it with a spoon directly from the mixing bowl!
