Yummy Goodness

Yes, it is December.

Yes, it is cold.

But this is east Texas and our idea of cold is in the 40's so the idea of making ice cream isn't completely ridiculous.

Or is it?

Wait! Don't answer that.

The ice cream did turn out pretty good. It has potential anyway. I was drooling over the strawberry coconut and peach coconut and so I picked up a bag of frozen blackberries (that is what Daisy wanted even though she didn't know what project I had in mind).

The blackberries just didn't interact with the coconut milk well. They were like two shy junior high kids at a dance, they were both there but neither was very noticeable.

Hubby suggested peaches because the coconut and peach would play well. He also suggested raspberries because it would contrast nicely with the coconut.

Junior was annoyed that I put in all the seeds. He didn't seem to care that it was God who put in the seeds (and they were a little annoying).

I wonder how almond milk would do with the blackberries, I see them playing better together but I don't even know if almond milk would work in ice cream.

It is also possible that the blackberry would do better in a sorbet, maybe that is what I should try with the almond.

Either way, it isn't going to go to waste. I do like it and think it tastes good - just not great and the potential is there.

Basing it off this recipe here I did change it somewhat.

I used

1 lb frozen blackberries
2 cans coconut milk
1/2 cup sugar (I didn't have that much honey)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

I put it in the blender then poured it in my ice cream maker. After letting it run for about 30 minutes, I took the container out and popped it in the freezer for a couple of hours.
