blackberry low carb ice cream

hoping to try this low carb treat soon
will have too makea few adjustments,not able to find heavy cream here for some reason

Wild Blackberry and Coconut Ice Milk

14 ounces coconut milk — lite1 cup skim milk3/4 cup splenda1 tablespoon lemon zest1/2 teaspoon rum extract1 cup blackberries — wild, washed and drained
Heat all ingredients on stove top until about 170 degrees or just about to boil. Don’t allow to boil. Press down on the berries to extract juice into the milk and then cool in the refrigerator about 1 hour or more.
Strain out seeds and place milk into an ice cream maker. Follow manufacturers directions. Better if eaten immediately rather than trying to store it for later.


  1. I was in Brazil a while back. They climb up a tree, chop down a coconut, chop off the top and stick a straw in it. And enjoy! It just doesn't get any fresher than that!

  2. Sounds great. One day soon I plan on making a coconut milk based ice cream. I also love berries. This recipe seems right up my alley! Thanks for posting it!
