Mixed Berries and Cream
I have some pretty strong opinions on dairy. I was a strict Vegan for a period of a little over two years. But I think that on occasion, we do need healthy fat sources. Most of the time, I try to find it from plant sources, but even when I cave in to the creamy texture that can only can from a cow, I try to find clean whole food sources. Raw milks and dairy are best in my mind but when it can't be found, I love using the pure vanilla ice cream from Costco. I'm not advertising for Costco, but that place is Heaven to me. And their ice cream is delicious. So my hubby threw some ingredients into the blender today and came up with this:
- 5 scoops of Kirkland brand Vanilla Ice Cream (you'll love the ingredients on the label - easy to read)
- 1/2 Cup of Rice Milk
- 1 Cup of Frozen Mixed Berries from Costco too (Now, I've seen the circulating hype on the berries from Costco being the cause of Hepatitus A. I think there are many things that contribute to such a complex disease and find it a little bit silly to blame berries for this, when there are probably a number of other factors that have yet to be considered. Just my two cents on the matter).
- Cherries (To put a cherry on top)
Throw the first three ingredients into your blender and serve into dessert bowls right away. Throw a cherry on top. Or more. Sure hit the spot today.
Question of the day:
During berry season, do you prefer your berries by the handful or bucketful? No seriously, I want to know if I'm the only that devours berries any way possible.
