Strawberry "Ice Cream"
From: Stephanie Ayn Land

Here is a recipe from The Pritikin Promise for Vegan Strawberry Icecream.
The recipe specifically mentions a vitamix (which I have..great machine) however if you don't have one than try making it in a regular blender... I don't know if it will work, but it is certainly worth a try. Another thought is to blend the stuff in its unfrozen state and then freeze it in your freezer... just remember to stir it every hour or so until its frozen.

So here is the recipe.. I think that substituting other frozen fruits should be just as easy... just have to adjust the sweetener.

Serving Size: 3

  • 2 cups brown rice -- soft cooked
  • 2 tablespoons apple juice, from frozen concentrate plus water to make 1/2 cup
  • 4 cups strawberries, frozen -- unsweetened
  • few drops each of almond and vanilla extract
Process the rice and diluted juice in the Vita-Mix on high speed until very smooth;
add the strawberries and flavorings and continue to process until the strawberries are worked into the mixture.
Serve immediately.

Hope this works for you. It is a really tasty recipe.

NOTES :
If you have a fabulous multipurpose machine called a Vita-Mix (for everything from bread to ice cream you'll be able to make this recipe one of the many developed for the Pritikin diet by the Vita-mix people.
This "ice cream" is unique in that it uses no milk products and has rice as a chief ingredient.
The rice should be soft cooked so add a little extra water in cooking it.
