Oh Yes! Chocolate Cherry Free From Raw Ice Cream!

Oh Yes! Chocolate Cherry Free FromΒ  Raw Ice Cream!

Ooo… I bet you thought I wasn’t going to make it to post this week! πŸ˜› πŸ™‚ Well here I am with an incredibly quick to make gorgeous bowl of raw frozen deliciousness (just for you Milica)! πŸ™‚

ItΒ was abnormally hot in the UK this week and hot weather calls for ice creams of course! For those following a free from diet of any sort, finding ice cream you can actually eat is very difficult… unless of course you make your own! No special equipment other than a blender / food processor needed. Seriously quick and easy to make, a little while to wait for it to freeze (or not!) and then munch away! Perfect! What did I do? I didn’t write it down that’s for sure – in my much too busy to think busiest week ever, but I did take photos so I could remember! Good job too as I’ve already made a second lot! πŸ˜› πŸ™‚ It only has FIVE ingredients and is super quick and easy to make! πŸ™‚ More time for enjoying the sunshine (you lucky people who have time at the minute!) πŸ™‚ Think of me being busy this week (especially Monday / Tuesday) and hopefully everything will start getting back to normal (?!) soon! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    O, I love this! I bet cherries give an extra kick with their sweet sourness. I do have pet peeve with them though. When I buy them frozen, there’s always some pit left, that makes my blender rattle like crazy πŸ˜€
    You still owe me the model number for your food processor πŸ˜›

      Milica these are red juicy sweet cherries πŸ™‚ They definitely add an extra dimension to the ice cream adding a plump moist burst of flavour! I can’t say I’ve ever put frozen cherries in the blender? I want to play now…

  • Fudgy chocolate brownies – vegan and gluten free | Life Diet Health 23rd March 2016 at 12:43

    […] These brownies were inspired by a recipe on Caroline’s Cooking and I just had to give them a try… with a few tweaks of course! Isn’t it amazing how many brownie recipes you can have! This will be the third I have posted onΒ this blogΒ – and when I was asked the other day which one I preferred I really didn’t know the answer! Anyway, these are great for the long weekend ahead, especially if you have vegan and free-from friends you need to cater for! I’ve paired mine with some delicious vegan ice-cream. […]
