Ice cream and a news article.

So today I was in the local news paper which is great Deerly Beloved Bakery!

I also made some delicious ice cream to enjoy in the sunshine! It's alot cheaper to make than the vegan ice creams out there and they are also alot simpler in their ingredients. No fillers or thickeners here. I buy frozen fruit at the local supermarket. It is probably higher in vitamins as it would have been frozen soon after picking and is also alot cheaper than say, fresh blueberries which can be so expensive!
I made a mango and blueberry ice cream, however be inventive! Think frozen bananas, raspberries, peaches, blackcurrants, vegan yoghurt, for a more indulgent treat add choc chips to cherries, broken biscuits or cookies, vegan toffee, the list is endless!

1 cup frozen mango
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 cup soya milk + a little more to loosen if needed

Literally get all the ingredients together and blitz in a processor till smooth! Make sure the fruit is straight from the freezer and the soya milk straight from the fridge. Sometimes I use soy yoghurt for a thicker richer flavour, but this recipe is so refreshing on a hot day! Serve and eat immediately!
Who's not happy to eat ice cream and get some of their 5 a day to boot!


  1. Sounds great. Never seen frozen fruit in our local supermarket though. Where do you go?

  2. If you look in the freezer compartment in the desserts, ice cream and ice section in the co-op or sainsburys,you should find them! Sainsburys have got an offer of three bags for £2.50 at the moment! lots of different fruits too! Hope this helps :)
