It is wicked hot here today... even though it is cloudy this afternoon, it got to almost 115. Not fun when you need to get your grocery shopping done! I would usually post a picture of something we plan on using this week, but instead I'll talk about something icy cold I just made to try and get some relief from the heat.
Easy Fruit Ice Cream is not a true ice cream, but it is dead easy and boy did it ever hit the spot. This is a mixture of vanilla soy milk, powdered sugar, a small box of instant pudding mix and a ton of frozen fruit. I used a combination of blueberries, marionberries and raspberries and the pudding was a white chocolate mix. All of the ingredients are placed in a food processor and in just a minute you can enjoy the smooth concoction. The instant pudding mix adds some flavor, but also provides a creamy mouthfeel and helps to keep that "icy" texture from forming. Right out of the processor, it was at soft-serve consistency and easily held its shape. I used a cookie scoop to show how it held its form, but I did place these in the freezer for a few minutes so we could take a picture without them melting. If you do prefer a more firm texture, scoop it into a bowl, cover and place in the freezer for about 15-20 minutes. Ahh... I feel much better already!
