Autumn Berries Icecream

Who cares that Summer's nearly over ? We still have ice cream...
Continuing our series on vegan ice cream flavours: some blackberries growing in a wild patch next to our garden caught my attention that other day, but unfortunately luckily there weren't quite enough for a crumble or jam so I just had to make icecream instead, helped out by some raspberries and blackcurrants we had in the freezer. (Not strictly Autumn, I know, but you could use whatever berries grow locally at this time of year.) The result was a fresh and fruity ice cream... enjoy!

Makes around a litre:
2 cans coconut milk (standard size)
1 3/4 cups coconut palm sugar (1 cup = 250ml)
2 tsps natural vanilla essence
2 cups berries

  • Mix all the ingredients together and freeze.
  • From time to time, take it out of the freezer and whisk plenty of air in. This will result in a softer ice cream.
  • Alternatively, use an ice cream maker.

  1. Love it, your autumn berries 'ice-cream' really does sing Autumn. Just love the colour. Please share/link this to my #VegetablePalette challenge - the theme is purple and blues, i think some of my readers, especially those committed to a vegan diet will love. http://allotment2kitchen.blogspot.co.uk/p/each-season-has-palette-of-colours.html
