I feel your pain, Jane! Running in the heat and humidity sure does take its toll, and most certainly leaves me feeling “inelegant.” One way to beat the heat is to stock your freezer with some refreshing frozen treats.
Believe me; I like ice cream as much as the next girl. However, having made it myself, I know how much heavy cream, whole milk and sugar recipes typically include. I am happy to report that there are alternatives for those of us who want our frozen treats on the healthy side.
At Golden Door in Escondido, California, they serve up blueberry lime ice for their guests. I learned this recipe as an intern in the kitchen. This frozen treat is dairy free, smooth, and delicious – and you won’t miss the sugar! All you need is a nonreactive dish and a food processor – no ice cream maker required. Give it a whirl!
