It’s getting really hot here in Florida!

Did I say really hot?

Well, that might be just an understatement!

It’s only May and it already feels like August! I’m not complaining, just sayin’!

Despite the heat I absolutely love summer! There is something fresh, new, and playful about summer to me.

Summer means it’s time for…

Making sandcastles

Jumping in the waves

Flying kites

Afternoon thunderstorms

Watermelon juice dripping down your arms

Plentiful berries

Late night movies

And…

Ice Cream!

That’s right, ice cream!  But finding real ice cream is no small task! If you have ever searched the aisles of grocery stores, even health food stores, you understand my frustration. Ice cream should be simple, yet most ice cream available today, even the “clean ones”, are filled with questionable ingredients that I truthfully don’t even know how to pronounce.

So, what to do?

It’s hot! And I need ice cream! My kids need ice cream! My husband…well…okay, the kids and I need ice cream!

Today, I have a recipe for you that is simple and 100% real!  Yes, it’s ice cream, but made with frozen berries, pro-biotic yogurt, raw honey, and fresh mint leaves. Dare I say it…an ice cream you can eat and feel good about! And all you need are a few minutes of time, a desire for ice cream, and a food processor!

I know!  Sounds too good to be true!

You can thank me later!  First, let me share with you this yummy real ice cream!

2. Add the berries, one cup at a time, until smooth (this took a couple minutes of blending after each cup).

Excuse the finger dipping...it's that good!

3. Spoon your ice cream into a freezer-friendly container. You will want to spread it evenly in the container so it makes scooping it out easier.
