so y'all know how you can make ice cream with just 2 ingredients, right? (tell me you knew that...if not, welcome to the world of ridiculously easy-to-make desserts.) well, not too long ago my friend Rosie asked if it were possible to make ice cream with any other frozen fruits besides bananas since she wasn't too crazy about the flavor. at the time, i told her i doubted it, that bananas are the only fruit with such a creamy consistency and i always make sure to add them to my smoothies for that very reason.
however, one day i found myself without any bananas...
instead of panicking (i may or may not have, a little), i decided to work with what i had in my freezer: some frozen strawberries and frozen blueberries. perfect!
the end result? a sort of sorbet, if you will. a refreshing, slightly sweet frozen treat, no bananas required.
~8 frozen strawberries
~1/4 cup frozen blueberries
2 tbsp of water or milk of choice
1 packet stevia (optional but recommended)
1 tbsp coconut shavings (optional)
1 tbsp cocoa powder (optional but SO good)
toss everything in a blender. puree. top with garnish, if desired.
**other fun mix-ins: nut butter, sliced almonds, walnuts, chocolate chips
