Fun with Fruit Friday…Jazzed up ice cream

The hips & bellies of my loved ones (and my own) are all suffering from Fun with Frosting Friday, so I’m going to have to occasionally switch it up for Fun with Fruit on Friday…Especially since bathing suit season is fast-approaching!

Today I’m posting a fun, quick and super easy way of jazzing up ice cream…with fruit!

Ingredients (for 2-3 large bowls or 4 smaller servings):

1 1/2 cups frozen fruit (I used strawberries, raspberries, a banana & blueberries)
1/2-3/4 a pint of vanilla ice cream  (I used Ben & Jerry’s Vanilla-yum!)
1 Tablespoon honey (to sweeten the fruit a little)

What you’ll need

A mixer or food processor…you can use a potato masher, though, if you don’t have either of these items.

Directions:

Add the banana and honey.

Add the FROZEN fruit…mine got a little thawed out, so I added some ice chips to thicken.

Mix on medium/high until blended-have the fruit still be a little chunky, but not see any large chunks of vanilla (probably about a minute or two).  Make sure you don’t over-mix or it’ll get too soft…Also  make sure you use FROZEN fruit or your mixture will turn to mush!

Eat right away- YUM!!
