Easy Three-Ingredient Ice Cream

Excuse me while I clear some cobwebs from the corners of this abandoned blog.  Blow some dust off the archives, spray a spritz of Febreeze… there, it’s like we were never gone!  It’s warm outdoors and everything’s green and vibrant and I miss blogging about cooking, so here I am.

Here’s a simple and universally beloved summer treat to herald our return to the food blogosphere: three-ingredient ice cream!  If you have a food processor or blender, you can make some pretty awesome ice cream within just a matter of minutes.  This is one of the most simple and consistent dessert recipes I’ve found.

Ingredients:

  • 10 oz frozen fruit of your choice (suggestions: strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, peaches, cherries)
  • ¼ cup of sugar
  • 2/3 cup of heavy cream
  • Optional: dash of vanilla for a fruit n’ crème flavor.

Directions:

1) Put the sugar, half of the cream, and half of the fruit into the blender or food processor.
2) Run the blender/processor until the ingredients have blended.  Add the rest of the fruit and cream and repeat until everything is blended.
3) Freeze until serving. (Note: The picture above was taken soon after I made the ice cream, so it was not as solid.  The picture below is after freezing overnight.)

That’s it! The only problem you might encounter is getting your blender blades to catch all of the fruit.  If it doesn’t seem to be churning anymore, turn off the blender, spoon the mixture around until the fruit is closer to the blades, and run it again.  You can continue doing this until it’s completely smooth or leave small chunks of fruit depending on your preference.

I’ve made this recipe with strawberries, pineapple, peaches, and a blend of strawberries and peaches. (Pictured and currently being consumed by the writer: peach.)  They all tasted great.  Go nuts with your favorite fruits.
