Single Serve Healthy Raspberry Ice Cream

“happiness and pleasure wrapped up in a healthy and exquisitely delicious treat”

We all scream for ice cream – can we have more, and more, please? Well, ice cream is a sweet and refreshing treat but it comes with a high amount of calories, sugar, fats, and don’t get me started on the additives and artificial sweeteners. This brings us to an unfavorable verdict for ice creams. Don’t get me wrong, ice cream is a perfectly nice treat in the hot summer as long as it’s eaten in moderation. The problem starts when the cravings kick-in or when we use ice cream as a coping mechanism. It’s okay, I’ve been there – something goes wrong, the ice cream is here to make you feel better until the guilt comes of how much you’ve eaten. It’s a struggle, which I found that this little single-serving healthy raspberry ice cream recipe might solve.

First of all, it’s a single serving, which means you make it, you eat until it’s gone and everyone’s happy! There’s no temptation there! Second of all, it’s actually healthy, because it’s homemade with only 3 natural ingredients! There’s no refined sugar, no additives, nor artificial sweeteners. Finally, and most importantly, it’s finger-licking good! The raspberries make it taste sweet, yet slightly acidic. The sour cream enhances that tangy flavor, while the honey makes it even sweeter with a floral taste. To tell you a little secret, raspberries are my favorite flavor, but you can make the recipe with any fruit you prefer, like blueberries, blackberries, cherries, strawberries, and so on. Even more, you can use a different sweetener. I chose honey because it’s healthy and super nutritious, and I like its taste, but you can also use maple syrup, agave, corn syrup, and many other natural sweeteners. Be brave, experiment and find the combination that’s to your taste.

However, maybe the most impressive thing for this little dessert is that it’s done in less than 5 minutes. If you’re using frozen raspberries you can actually eat it right away, as a cold creamy delight, but if you want to the real ice-cream experience than you’ll have to leave it in the freezer for at least an hour. Can you resist the temptation for that long? You know what they say – the bigger the challenge, the bigger the reward!

I posted two methods on how you can make this recipe, just in case some of you don’t have a blender. Now, for the first method, you’ll need a blender and a small container or ice cream molds, while for the second method, you’ll need a small mixing bowl, a container or ice cream molds.

The first method it literally takes a few seconds, as all you have to do is put the raspberries, the sour cream, and the honey in a bowl and mix with a stick blender. Once you get the consistency you want, transfer into a container or an ice cream mold, and place it in the freezer.

The second method can only be used if you have fresh raspberries, as you can’t puree frozen raspberries by hand. So, take the fresh raspberries and crush them into a small mixing bowl. Once you make a puree out of the raspberries, add the sour cream and honey. Mix well until all of the ingredients are combined, and you have a smooth blend. Transfer the blend into a small container or an ice cream mold, and place it in the freezer.

Finally, after an hour you can enjoy your healthy raspberry ice cream! Of course, if you like to share this treat with your friends and family, simply double or triple the ingredients and make more servings.
