Beet and Honey Froyo


If you know me, then you’ll know ice cream is one of my top 5 favorite foods. Number 3, to be exact. I made my first batch of home made ice cream in college, when my roommate and I “accidentally” kept an ice cream maker from our other friend. We experimented ice cream recipes all summer long.

The thing about ice cream makers, though, is that they’re never really ready for you when inspiration hits. Freezing the ice bucket for 6 hours? Am I even going to want to make ice cream in 6 hours? It’s not a risk I’m willing to take.

Midnight Dessert Cravings + Giveaway

Have you ever had those moments when, all of a sudden, you have a huge hankering for ice cream? And you know that there aren’t any ice cream cartons in your fridge, and you don’t want to go out and buy it because you’re trying to cut ice cream out of your diet, anyway. But then you argue with yourself for a while and finally convince yourself that you deserve a dessert, and so you stand up to go to the corner store, only to take a glance at the time: 1:36am. What store is going to be open at this time of night?

Well, the good news is, you can make an easy ice cream at home, with a lot less fat and in a lot less time than traveling to the store and trying to pick a flavor. A while back, we made a post about making an all natural sorbet, purely from frozen fruit. While that is just as tasty of a treat, there are times when I just want something that tastes rich and creamy, just like real ice cream, and this is the perfect recipe.

I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for…

…ICE CREAM!

Let’s be real – how many times have we vowed to go on a diet? And how many times did that diet include cutting out sweets and desserts? And then…how many times did we break our resolve a few months (or even weeks…or days!) later?

Being “healthy” doesn’t mean you have to cut out foods you love, especially when you have the number one blender in the world. Some of my favorite types of frozen desserts are the ones made from frozen fruits! Will and I are particularly good at buying too much fruit and particularly bad at eating it all on time before it goes bad, so whenever our fruit is about to go bad, I like to prepare them in ziplock bags and throw them in the freezer for another day. Frozen fruit is perfect to make a delicious frozen dessert on the spot (midnight craving, anyone?), or you can throw them in your smoothies in place of ice cubes!
