What you are looking at it is further proof that a food processor is the best thing to ever happen to me. Most of my favorite things to make involve the food processor (like this green smoothie), and with lots of herbs and veggies getting harvested, it's getting used even more.
I'd heard rumor that you could even make ice cream in the food processor…
Now, if we're calling a spade a spade, it's not REALLY ice cream. And the flavor and consistency are closer to that of frozen yogurt….which just so happens to be my favorite!
What I'm most interested in being able to make at home are foods that are organic (or as natural as possible), nutritious, and really, REALLY good. This one is absolutely perfect for my repertoire. And, obviously, the possibilities are endless for what ingredients to add. Glad I have the whole summer ahead of me!
When you start the food processor, the ingredients will take a minute to get chopped up, and it will turn into a weird crumbly mixture first. Be patient, and let it keep running until it gets to the consistency in the picture. I stopped the processor once to scrape the sides and add about a tablespoon of almond milk (though you could make this perfectly fine without it). I put a few more pieces of frozen fruit on top, and they were soft enough by the end to eat. Enjoy! And let me know what combinations you try!
**Note: After trying a few different fruits, I have to say my favorites are the ones that have a hint of sourness or mildness to them them, like raspberries and blueberries. Very sweet fruits, like strawberries came out a little too sweet for my palate.
