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
Prep time: 3 hrs
cups fresh fruit (I've tried strawberries, blueberries, pineapple)
tablespoons honey or granulated sugar, more to taste
tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
