Author Notes: The great thing about this recipe is that it is so easy: It takes just minutes to prepare and there's no special ice cream maker required. Just use a blender or food processor, then let the freezer do the heavy lifting. (Adapted from the Food Network.)Tieghan Gerard

Makes 4 cups

  • 3 cups fresh fruit (I've tried strawberries, blueberries, pineapple)
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons honey or granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 3 cups ice
  1. To the bowl of a food processor or high powered blender, add the fruit, honey or sugar (I used 2 tablespoons honey), lemon juice, and 2 cups ice. Blend the mixture until chunky and then add the remaining 1 cup of ice. Blend until completely smooth.
  2. Pour the mixture into a 9- by 13-inch baking dish and place in the freezer for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes remove the ice from the freezer and scrape it with a fork until slushy. Return to the freezer for another 2 hours.
  3. After 2 hours, you can then scoop the ice into cups. If the ice is too hard to scoop, let it sit out for 5 minutes to soften, or add the ice to a blender and blend until slushy. Scoop into cups.
