What a morning. Back from running around and with a pretty good face rash at that. Not from pollen, from the food store. Right after I touched something, I got a rash on my hand and soon, my face.
I look like a hot mess.
Good thing I know how to make Blueberry Almond & Coconut Crunch, ice cream. Ah ... all better now. Well, not really but at least my purple blueberry tongue, matches my hot pink rash face.
See, always the silver lining.
OK that looks great.ReplyDelete
Recipe NOW !
It's super easy:Delete
Organic frozen: Blueberries, apples (I keep skins on but that's not for everyone), nanners - and blitz.
Knock back down, blitz again, adding almonds, coconut and a weeeeee bit of 100% pure maple syrup. (all cold from the fridge).
That's it. Super yummy. Super easy.
NOTE: I use a 500 watt food processor. It's not that strong but it does the job for one serving.
And you don't have to use organic blueberries, apples and nanners, but since I'm on the mend, I have to.Delete
Stopping by to say hello!ReplyDelete
That ice cream looks so yummy! : )
Nice to hear from you. I'm sorry to hear things have been a rough go. Hope they clear up, SOON!Delete
This one looks yummy, too!ReplyDelete
Loved your Minion drawing. So fun.
Okay, I think this is the one for me. I'm going to have to make this! Everything in it I love. And you know what else I love? Your upbeat personality. Yes, always a silver lining!ReplyDelete
I like mine eaten straight away. Though I do sometimes refreeze, they just don't have the same good texture and taste.Delete
PS: Thanks. I made myself laugh when I looked at my face and my tongue.
Blueberry - CheckReplyDelete
Almond - Check
Coconut milk - Check
Apple - None
Banana - Check
I think I'm going to join the ice cream marathon!
My bad, coconut shreds, unsweetened. I sometimes roast mine first and other times I don't. But the good organic stuff, I find tastes the best.Delete
Though if you do add coconut milk, try it after the first knock down and maybe ditch the maple. That might work nicely.
And no apples, no problem. The apple adds a filler without overtaking the blueberry. Pear can work instead or leave it out and see how that works.
Most important, freeze the fruit before adding it to the food processor. And eat as soon as your done.
PS: I just put a can of coconut milk in the fridge. Gonna see how it works, tomorrow. Thanks for the idea.Delete
I will also try tomorrow, the coconut milk is also in the freezer!Delete
Cool beans. Can't wait to hear how yours turns out.Delete
Once I open my fridge can, I'll make few coconut milk ice cubes. Be fun to see how both ways work.
Thanks for the idea.
That sounds tasty!ReplyDelete
So good together.Delete
so yummy! Too bad about that rash, you almost don't want to touch anything, or wear protective gloves.ReplyDelete
I may have to wear gloves (ack!).Delete
Yum! That looks amazing!ReplyDelete
What the heck did you touch??
Thanks. Not sure?Delete
That does look delicious. One of the best ice creams I ever tasted was at the Chinese restaurant during one of their celebrations. Right now I can't remember what it was, I will have to look it up.ReplyDelete
Was it almond? Hmmm ... I might have to do a Friday question asking what's the best ice cream you ever had. Thanks for the idea.Delete
I bet it was my favorite Japanese sorbet, Lychee.Delete
Lightly sweet sorbet with frozen little chunks of chopped up Lychee. The brand you want is
I'd make it at home. Lychee if on my To Play, list.Delete
Skip the coconuts and I am right there...ReplyDelete
I wish I could think of a good coconut joke but I'm fresh out of funnies.Delete
that ice cream looks divine and eating it is is well justified with that rash--all about colour balance, right? :)ReplyDelete
The rash came first when I was out, but I thought, heck, let's balance things out with a little purple-blue.Delete
yup, got it.Delete
And it made me laugh when I saw what hot mess I looked like.Delete
Do you have any food or environmental allergies?
Blueberries and almonds sound a good mix !ReplyDelete
All the best Jan
