Healthy Fruit Ice Cream

How to make honey and yogurt fruit ice cream for a healthy treat

5 from 1 reviews

This fruit ice cream is refined sugar-free and offers a burst of probiotics. It is a healthy and delicious treat. See the section above for 6 fruit flavor combinations.

Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 1/2 cups of soft fruit, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup honey (see notes)
  • 3/4 cup milk kefir or yogurt
  • 3/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Place the honey and the fruit in a blender. Pulse until blended. Add the milk kefir and continue to blend until smooth. Add in the whipping cream, vanilla, and salt and pulse a few times to mix.
  2. Refrigerate the mixture for at least 2 hours before churning, so that it is well chilled.
  3. Follow the instructions on your ice cream maker for a 4 cup batch of ice cream.
  4. Freeze the ice cream for at least 3 hours before serving.

Notes

  • I always use honey in my non-custard style ice creams. It keeps the ice cream soft and easy to serve and slows down freezer burn. However, you could use 2/3 cup of sugar instead.
  • If you want to make completely sugar-free ice cream, check out my recipe for banana-sweetened ice cream.
  • I store our finished ice cream in old plastic yogurt tubs or straight-sided mason jars. It’s also cute to make individual servings in little jam jars.
