mango-cherry ice cream
Today I was messing around with desserts. I confirmed once again that I am the worst baker in the world! I was trying out a "chickpea blondie" recipe that someone posted on the Fuhrman forums. It was okay but, well, I didn't follow the instructions exactly (this is why I'm the worst baker in the world), and it was dry and just not my favorite treat. Then I tried my own variation which was 10 times worse. This had cherries and pinto beans and walnuts and dates. It was a purple gooey glob of so-so. so a few hours later I saw those dates lying around and I can't resist a good date (which is why I don't buy them very often!). So I thought, oh, why not some old fashioned ice cream. Now this turned out good! I didn't measure anything so I'm just guessing below:
juice of one orange
1 medjool date
1 cup frozen sweet cherries
1 cup frozen mango (vary ratio of mangos and cherries to your preferences)
a few walnut pieces (1/2 oz at most)
blend the date and walnuts and orange juice in a high-speed blender. Add the cherries and mangos; blend until smooth, or not if you want it chunky. Serves 2.
