I made this twice so far , i love recipes that allow for creation a bit . First was with 'Triple Berries " (frozen) , they were raspberries , blueberries and marionberries .They gave the ice cream a wonderful purple color .The second time was with (frozen again ) strawberries , and i added a few drops of red and a drop of blue food dye to give the color .
Everyone who tasted them loved them , there's only few things i want to say :
I have the Cuisinart Ice cream maker , 1 1/2 quart , i halved the recipe the first time to fit in it but it was still a little too much mixture for the machine to handle and the berries ( i hadn't chopped throughly because i wanted texture in the ice cream )kind of clogged it , unfortunately i didn't remember this next time and did the same mistake . So the the walls get frozen but inside isn't churned perfectly . Just a reminder, maybe i should do 1/3 of the recipe next time and chop the fruit throughly .
Also , the batch with strawberries came out better (sweeter and creamier) and i think that's due to the tartness of the other berries maybe ?
I'm thinking about making this with pie filling as well , (peaches ?) and i will update my review then .
I agree the texture is more icy then creamy , but i let the ice cream sit on the countertop for 5 mins before serving it , that mostly solves that problem .
And although i half everything else when making it , i keep the berries ( fruit) the same amount and it hasn't hurt the ice cream so far .
