This is quick and easy. It keeps me going until lunch.
Also makes a creamy, rich ice cream in half the normal freezing time.
This recipe is perfect if you have a magic bullet or a blender with that stirring stick top. If you don't have a powerful blender, you may have to stop and stir a few times.
I just tried this using the Cuisinart “smart stick” immersion blender, and it was awesome! This is a great way to go! It was quick, super creamy, whisper quiet, and clean up was a breeze.
By the way, the picture was just to make a point. Don't try that at home!
