The March Diner News is featuring appliance helpers in the kitchen. I will have two pages devoted to blender recipes. This one is so delicious, I can barely contain myself. The cream cheese makes it so creamy, yet the bit of lemon makes it just slightly tart. So GOOD! And it is quick and easy in the blender. No ice cream maker needed, and no waiting. Just a good soft serve ready when you are. Of course, you have frozen strawberries, right?
1/2 cup cashew milk
3 oz cream cheese
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup erythritol / stevia blend equal to sugar
3 cups frozen strawberries
1 cup ice cubes
Add ingredients to the blender in the order listed. Turn blender on, gradually turning up to high speed. Use the tamper to push down sides. When blender changes sounds, stop. Over processing will make a thinner ice cream. Serve immediately or freeze for a firm texture.

I really should have garnished this ice cream for the photo. Granted, it is pretty enough to stand alone. Truth is, I ran to get photos before it melted. The flavor is so fantastic, it doesn't need a drizzle of chocolate or a sprinkle of coconut. Wonderful just as it is--unadorned beauty.
It has been a busy day. We set my oh so talented son. Pearson, up with a booth at the local antique and craft mall. He is offering his art for sale. I am so proud of his abilities! Just look at this sample. Some people thought it was my portrait. "I'm Sorry" to say that it is not me. I love it anyway. Very cool technique he uses. What a great guy he is.
