I really love coconut lime ice cream… the combination is a great balance of nutty, sweet and tangy. I’ve always made this sorbet version of coconut lime, but decided to change it up a little bit now that I don’t make coconut kefir much anymore.
I also have a ton of blackberries sitting in my freezer, grown from my own bushes. I knew throwing in some would create some beautiful colors and take the tanginess up a notch.
To be honest, I am more of a throw-it-together and pour into the ice cream machine kinda gal. Don’t get me wrong, I love making the custards… but there are days where I just rather be spontaneous!
Naturally, I am a very spontaneous person… ask my hubby. It used to drive him crazy, but now he loves it because it is in my moments of spontaneous-ness that I make the best meals and desserts.
Especially ice cream 🙂
And because of my spontaneous personality… having the Smart Scoop has been very handy with no need to pre-freeze the container. All I gotta do it push that ‘power’ button, hit the pre-cool while mixing together the ingredients and I am good to go!
I am sure you are wondering if I actually used that coconut (in the picture above) to make ice cream. For this one, no… but I have in the past and it is SO worth the extra work!!
In fact, I think I will do that today!! Pound out a couple coconuts and make some pina colada… how does that sound?!
