Easy cool treat

Raspberry Gelato

  • a 12-ish-oz. bag of frozen raspberries
  • 1/3 cup of sugar (start with less and add if you worried about it being too sweet)
  • 1/2 cup of heavy cream

Whir them all together in a food processor or blender until it's completely smooth. THAT'S. IT. And this feeds 4-6 people, depending how you interpret "portion size."

Depending on how frozen your berries are, you might have to whir a bit longer, but you can serve it immediately if you'd like. Or just pour the bright pink awesomeness into a container and throw it in the freezer for a couple of hours. It'll last a couple of weeks I think, but mine didn't even come close to making it that long. And if you're adventurous, experiment with other fruits! The bigger the fruit, the longer it'll take (assuming they're frozen fruits). And if you'd like something a little less fattening, feel free to try plain yogurt instead of the cream. I haven't tried it, but I can't imagine it'd be bad.
