My Homemade Ice Cream Experiment

Today was a very hot and humid day. All day long I thought about ice cream. I don't buy ice cream from the store because even the dairy free versions have additives and excessive amounts of sugar. So even after my very healthy and satisfying dinner I was still craving ice cream. I guess I'll have to try and make some myself, I thought.

I got out my single serve cup that came with my Ninja blender and started throwing random things into it. I added:

1 ounce or so of unsweetened plain rice/quinoa milk substitute
Half a teaspoon of chia seed flour
5 small cubes of frozen pineapple
Half of a small frozen banana (about 2.5 inches)
3 teaspoons of cashew butter
I pulsed the mixture several times and then blended a few times, stopping between to shake the mixture in the cup.

I have to say....this was a very delicious experiment. Oh my goodness was it yummy. I had to share it for all my patients and followers who can't have a lot of sugar, dairy, thickeners like guar gum and carageenan, and other weird commercial ice cream ingredients. It was so easy and cheap to make. Try it, you'll be happy you did. I think this Acupuncturist should open a restaurant!
