Recipe of the Week: 4th of July Treat
4th of July Treat!
From Go Figure chef/co-owner, David MacDonald
Here are two desserts that are yummy like ice cream, yet unlike ice cream, they will probably not cause you to gain weight (unless you get carried away )
Berries and Cream: Mix fresh or unsweetened frozen berries with a little agave. Put a small amount of berries in another bowl for garnish. Whip whipping cream with mixer. When cream is almost whipped, add 1 tsp. agave and 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract per pint of whipping cream. Fold whipped cream into berries and fill each stemware glass about ¼-1/3 full with the mix. Garnish with berries.
Sorbet: This recipe requires some pre-prep the day before: Pour some unsweetened almond milk (plain or vanilla) in ice cube trays and freeze.
Place frozen unsweetened fruit, a little agave and stevia, and a small amount of unsweetened almond milk ice cubes in blender or Ninja (works best.) Blend and put mix in glass stemware. Garnish with a little homemade whipped cream and mint leaf.
Happy 4th of July!!!
