Quick & Easy Berry Ripple Ice Cream

The  consumption of berries is said to be associated with a reduced incidence of disorders induced by reactive oxygen species (ROS), including cardiovascular disorders, cancer and inflammatory processes. That aside, they taste great and are low in carbs. Also, using frozen berries at this time of the year means that we aren’t adding to the import of seasonal fresh berries from abroad.

A quick rummage through the freezer for a handful of berries and a few extra ingredients can produce a taste of summer in the depths of winter. For the following recipe I used a combined handful of strawberries, cranberries, blackberries, raspberries and blueberries.

100 ml Double Cream
1 tablespoon Cream Cheese
1 teaspoon Erythritol  or similar
½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 handful Mixed Berries


Whip the cream, cream cheese, sweetener and vanilla extract to a firm consistency and place in the fridge while heating the berries in a saucepan gently stirring until a jam-like consistency is achieved. Allow this to cool completely. Stir the berry ‘jam’ through the chilled cream to create a ripple. Place in the freezer for approximately 30 mins and its ready.
