I wish I could think of a way to give more than 5 stars. I so regret not getting an ice cream maker before now. This recipe is amazing, honestly it tastes like it's rich with cream without a drop of dairy. I doubled the amount to make a full batch for my machine with Costco mixed frozen berries, used 1/4 cup of sugar and 3/4 cup of Splenda, 1/2 a cup of pasteurized egg white and added between 1/4 to 1/2 a tsp of cinnamon extract. This is so good I could have eaten all of it right out of the machine and I'm stocking way up on those berries. If anyone comments on me turning purple in a month or so I'm just going to giggle and keep it all for myself!

Very refreshing and awakening. My DH and I ate this down so YummY! A great dessert for after a heavy meal. I used my vita mix which I was able to use frozen berries without thawing. I use blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries. I added a good splash of Chambord. And as you see in the picture I garnished with fresh berries and mint leaves.
