Banana Strawberry Ice Cream with Chocolate Bits - lower calorie & gluten-free
Why I Love This Recipe
Today is my birthday, so I decided to make ice cream! First I had to see what ingredients I had for a simple frozen dessert. I wanted it to be lower calorie and fat, yet delicious - thus enjoy!
Thanks to Babette, I added chopped Scharffen Berger 82% Cacao Dark Chocolate Bars
Ingredients You'll Need
2 pkgs Fat Free Sugar Free Instant Banana Pudding & Pie Filling (4 serving size)
1 cup almond milk, unsweetened
1 cup fat-free half and half
1 cup 2% milk
6 g Scharffen Berger 82% Cacao Dark Chocolate Bars (each bar is 5g)
1/2 cup strawberries, chopped and slightly frozen
Chill your ice cream bucket overnight. Chill you mixing dish an hour before beginning to mix, if the weather is hot.
Whisk together pudding mix and milk(s) . Place the container (with the paddle in place) in the freezer for about an hour.
Remove the bucket, placer on base, cover and start the machine. Gradually add the chocolate and strawberries as the machine churns. When all is mixed, return the base(with the paddle in place) to the freezer for a couple of hours. Remove and turn on for about 5 minutes. If it is frozen as much as you want; enjoy, otherwise, return to freezer.
This frozen dessert will not get as hard as 'real' ice cream. I do not believe the pudding will set with soy milk.
