    This recipe is made with shop-bought frozen fruit and takes about 30 seconds to prepare, and is a really healthy ice cream substitute.

    • 100g mixed frozen berries

    1. Do not defrost the fruit. Put the two ingredients in a blender and whizz for 30 seconds. You'll have an instant ready-to-serve soft-scoop ice cream.

    Cook's note

    The proportions of each ingredient can be adjusted according to how thick you like your ice cream, and milk can be added to turn this into a frozen smoothie. If the natural sweetness of the berries isn't enough, you can add honey. I don't recommend sugar, as it won't dissolve.

    While simple as this is, it must be known, use sweet frozen berries. Or you will find that you recipe will be bitter or tart. I found my raspberries I used were very very tart, so I had to add a few TSPs of sugar to balance it out. The next thing is, you need longer then 30 seconds to combine the 2 ingredients more and the recipe does need a slight freeze on the recipe about 2 hours. But for a quick fix sorbet, this is a decent recipe. Just make sure you taste and adjust sweetness.  -  26 Feb 2015


    We used the yogurt we had (Greek Vanilla) and frozen "berry medley" which was strawberries, raspberries, blackberries & blueberries, blended with a touch of honey for added sweetness and a bit of whole milk to make it smoother. Great for last minute dessert (especially in the summer) and the kids loved it.  -  31 May 2013  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    I am lactose intolerant and lactose free yogurt is very expensive, so I substituted lactose free long life milk. It was great! Absolutely love this!  -  23 Sep 2014  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
