We’re off to a friends property for dinner this evening and the Little Man decided that our contribution to dessert would be homemade berry ice-cream.
It’s a super easy Jamie Oliver recipe that we’ve modified a little to suit our own tastes (you can find the actual recipe on his website here).
500 mL of natural yoghurt (I use the one from our local health food store)
400 gram packet of frozen mixed berries
150 grams frozen raspberries
3-4 tablespoons of honey
1-2 drops spearmint essential oil
Pop your yoghurt, honey and spearmint oil in to your food processor bowl (try warming your honey beforehand so that it is really runny, otherwise it tends to stick to the side of the bowl) and whiz.
Add your berries and whiz again until combined. (we like to leave little chunks of berry in ours).
Pop in the freezer until firm, then serve with your favourite cheesecake (yum!) or eat as an afternoon treat on its own.
Super easy and delicious!!
Note: If you are wondering whether spearmint oil is safe to ingest, it is. However, I strongly recommend that you do some research of your own and make up your own mind before you use it.
