Double-Berry Ice Cream

By Nikki Sheriff

Fresh strawberries and raspberries make a fabulous frozen dessert with only 9g carbs per serving. Sweet!

Double-Berry Ice Cream
  • 2 cups whole strawberries, the tops removed

  • 1 cup raspberries

  • 1/4 cup C&H light sugar (sugar-stevia blend found in most grocery stores)

  • 2 cups half & half

  • 1/2 package unflavored gelatin

  • 1 TBL lemon juice

  1. In a small pan, mix the sugar, gelatin and 1/2 cup of the half & half.

  2. Heat over medium heat until the gelatin and sugar are dissolved, but don't let it come to a full boil.

  3. In a large bowl, mix the heated mixture with the remaining ingredients.

  4. With an immersion blender (or in a blender) blend the mixture, just until the berries are in small chunks.

  5. Pour into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's directions.

  6. TIP: Half & half can be substituted with whole milk, making the ice cream more of a sorbet texture. Counts will change to: 48 calories, 1.4g total fat, 9g carbohydrates, 2g protein, 17mg sodium

C&H is a brand name that stands for California and Hawaiian sugar company. Any brand that has the mixture of stevia and sugar would work or just use whatever sugar sub you use normally. It's no big deal. I think almond milk would also be a good sub if you want to cut out the milk carbs. Or, cream rather than half and half which is half milk and half cream and also contains disodium phosphate (read the label) many times that is especially hard on diabetic kidneys as well as everyone else's kidneys. I'd cut back half on the fruit to reduce the sugar carbs in the fruit and keep the fruit flavor.

Wouldn't using heavy cream also be diabetic friendly? Half and half is another term for half cream and half milk the fat content being more than in whole milk.

Luvbears59, the Knox brand unflavored gelatin packets have about 2 tsp of unflavored gelatin, so you'd use about 1 tsp. I'm sorry it didn't turn out for your friend. I've made this several times and had not yet had it not turn out.

This says 1/2 package unflavored gelatin. What size package of gelatin? Had a friend that tried to make it and it didn't turn out, so that is why I am asking. Thanks

WOW, from 16 mg to 17 g sodium when substituting half and half for whole milk? Surely this is a misprint.
