Pineapple, YUM!

I'm working on homemade ice creams, sherbets, sorbets and soft serve, yums. All free of dairy, eggs and refined sugars.

Special THANKS! to my new friend Elizabeth. My plan was to mush the banana and then freeze. But her experience was freeze, then blitz in the food processor. Brilliant. I'll never eat store-bought ice cream again, there's just no need, this stuff is THAT good.

From there, I've been working on all kinds of combinations. The one below is pineapple, apple and banana with a wee bit of local maple syrup.

Allergies might suck, but the writing sure doesn't.

  1. Sounds divine! I tried tofu ice cream and it was kinda awful. But, fruit pops rock!

    PS: I love your pictures. Well done.

    1. Thanks, Girl. It's fun to do.

      Bean curd ice cream for me, is a bit on the heavy side, or was. It's been a million years since I tasted them. They might be better now.

    1. Neat that you got all that asparagus. Wonder how it would taste mixed in with fruit? Maybe not so good, but I tell ya, I like kale and spinach in smoothies, so who knows. Maybe ice cream would work too.

      Agreed on the chocolate and nanners. Two great tastes together!

    2. We don't have time to rock, we are too busy walking LOL

      I don't think I'll use sugar as fruits has plenty of... well maybe a little maple sirup could fall by "accident" in the mixer :)

    3. The maple is nice but again, only a wee bit for me. It helps to mix and bind. Though too much makes it watery and yikes, sweet.

      PS: Haha on the walk. Again, congrats.

    1. Hey Girl - That's an easy fix. Just remove the frozen pineapple and use anything else that you fancy. No rules. All yum.

  14. I love this idea! I'm going to have to try it out with some fruits. Not sure which one to start with but there certainly are some great choices. Lucky me, I love fruit! It sounds like you're having a great time over at your place. Homemade ice cream party!

    1. I tell ya' the truth. I will never eat store-bought ice cream, sorbets, sherbets, gelato or ANY of that, again. There's just no need for me to do that, when this is totally customizable, and allergy-friendly.
