Two minute soft-serve Raspberry Ice-cream… Dairy Free!

Two minute soft-serve raspberry ice-cream… Dairy Free!

It’s Summer! 😀 We’re in the middle of a heatwave here in the UK! It’s hot! Very hot! Some say too hot, but we mustn’t complain as it doesn’t happen very often! 😀 So it’s most definitely barbecue weather, and we’ve eaten most meals outside for the past week, but rather than post something which takes time away from the sunshine, I thought I’d share a very quick delicious ice-cream recipe with you! 😀 There are only FOUR ingredients in this ice-cream and if you have everything already chilled and frozen, then you could be eating this before you’ve even finished reading this post! 😛 The other great thing about this ice-cream is you can make it any flavour you wish… I’m thinking we will try mango next, but strawberry, pineapple, chocolate, rhubarb, or plain would also be great choices!

We went to the coast at the weekend and there were so many flavours (and colours) of ice-cream (sadly non dairy-free where we were) it was almost like being in Italy! The flavours which caught my eye were rhubarb crumble, strawberry cheesecake, tutti frutti, salted caramel and chocolate maple pecan! Yummy! Any of these would be so easy to create with just a bit of thought – crumble or cheesecake could be crushed granola, the fruits are easy, blended dates and plant milk make a great caramel and chocolate chunks or cocoa powder can be added for chocolate ice-cream. We do already have several ice-cream recipes on here (please excuse our older photos), including rhubarb & ginger, nut & berry, chocolate cherry, and plain as vanilla! but this one is a completely different recipe! Just think, if you hadn’t read all the way to here you could be eating this now! 😛 Oh, and as this recipe is mostly fruit, of course you can eat it for breakfast! 😀 What are we serving it in? A brand new item just gifted to my crockery collection – a gorgeous natural coconut bowl from coconutbowls uk!

    I’d forgotten about this, thanks for the reminder☺ I shall show this to mother-in-law as she’s always got a tin of coconut milk in the cupboard that she never uses and bananas that should be placed in the freezer lol…and tubs of frozen raspberries from her husband’s allotment from last year! She’s a creature of habit though so won’t hold my breath😂Not long to go now, ‘I think’ we’ve done most of our packing x

      Ooo… perfect weather to show her how quick and easy a delicious ‘different’ desert can be! Good job you’re not arriving today – I think the atmosphere will be very downhearted! Rather you than me packing in this weather! I’m just lazing around eating ice-cream! 😛 xxx

        Haha, it would appear to be the year of how the mighty have fallen in the football world lol ( husband is still gutted about Italy not even qualifying). It’s great seeing England doing so well but let’s not get too excited just yet😂xxx

    Hi Laurena, we drove down (or hubbie did!) yesterday. He started work today, poor thing😉Today will be mostly spent tidying stuff away, even though it will only be for a month before we find somewhere more permanent, I just can’t help myself lol. Going to pop into the large bakery down the road but I doubt I’ll find any vegan stuff in there😱Hope all’s well with you, have a good week xxx

    Haha, we have a little kitchenette at the mo which is good! We’re in a small town so veganism may not be that big where we are lol. I’m sure there are a lot more options when we go to Frankfurt, the closest city here X

      Thank you Mollie… I’m sure they must sell off overripe bananas cheap there like here… like almost giveaway prices! We buy those and freeze them so we can whip this up anytime! ☺
