Guilt-free Ice Cream

I refuse to pay a lot of money for sugar-free fat-free ice cream when I can make my own. If there’s no fat and no sugar, what are you paying for?

Today I made strawberry ice cream (or perhaps I should call it ice milk) my way. It’s so easy with the Vita-mix. Here’s how:


Strawberry Ice Milk


  • ½ cup skim or 1% milk
  • 2 cups frozen strawberries
  • 1 Tbsp. Splenda® sweetener


  1. Pour milk into the Vita-mix wet ingredients container.
  2. Add Splenda and strawberries.
  3. Turn on low then gradually step up speed to high. Use the tamper to push the strawberries into the Vita-mix blades.
  4. Run Vita-mix just until strawberries dissolve and mixture resembles ice cream.
  5. Serve!

Yield: 2 servings

Variation: Use real cream or half-and-half for richer ice cream

Isn’t this a yummy way to satisfy two of your daily fruit servings plus a little dairy? Enjoy!
