3 Bio-tiful Dairy Summertime Recipes…

Today I am sharing 3 Summertime recipes from Bio-tiful Dairy.

Pefect for serving up on a warm afternoon for lunch in the garden.

Homemade Ice cream, how yummy!?


Berry & Kefir Ice Cream

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 2 cups Bio-tiful Kefir (Original, Baked or Morello Cherry Kefir Smoothie)
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • ⅔ cup honey or maple syrup
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • cup cashew nuts, soaked for 2 hours and drained

Instructions:

  1. Combine the raspberries, Kefir, milk, sweetener, soaked cashew nuts and vanilla extract in a food processor. Process until smooth.
  2. Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and churn according to the instructions. Serve immediately as soft-serve ice cream or freeze to harden.



No Ice Cream Machine?

  1. Pour the ice cream base into a freezer-safe shallow pan. Freeze for 30 minutes.
  2. Remove from freezer and mix with a fork to break up all of the ice chunks. Fewer ice chunks means smoother ice cream. 
  3. Repeat every 20 minutes until the ice cream has firmed up to your liking, 2 to 4 hours.
