Vitamix Homemade Ice Cream

| 7/7/2015 11:36:00 AM

Faithful HomesteaderMy family is really working on eating better and eating foods that are more wholesome. One of my favorite investments to help with this was a Vitamix. There are so many wonderful things that I can make in it that aid in a healthier lifestyle. A weakness especially in the summer is ice cream, but thanks to my Vitamix, we can still indulge with a healthier ice cream. It is great how we can make a variety of ice cream flavors with just a few ingredients.

For us the taste is as good as anything that we would get elsewhere but we feel better about eating it. We start with the recipe for a basic vanilla. We take organic milk, organic sugar or stevia, organic vanilla and ice. From there we can add other things like frozen strawberries or bananas. We have used chocolate chips to make a chocolate version.

My husband most often is content with just the basic vanilla. I often crave the strawberry, but I also find that strawberry and banana together is so yummy. Here's our basic recipe.
