Blueberry Ice Cream Delight : Low Carb


Three of our favourite fruits are strawberries, raspberries and blueberries, they are lower in carbs so fit right in with our Low Carb High Fat Lifestyle ... and importantly help keep Eddie's blood sugar levels low. You can read our Introduction To Low Carb post here

But hey, it's the weekend so why not treat yourself to a bowl of this delicious ice cream, it's a very nice recipe from Anne Aobadia at Diet Doctor site - here are the ingredients you will need...
Low-Carb Blueberry Ice Cream
It's 'icy cool and unbelievably creamy'
Ingredients:
Six Servings
6g carb per serving
1 cup / 0.2 litre (approx. 7 fluid ounces) heavy (double) whipping cream
3 egg yolks
½ teaspoon ground cardamom (green)
½ lemon, the zest
8 oz. / 225 g mascarpone cheese
6 oz. / 175 g blueberries, frozen

You can also:
Use raspberries instead of blueberries for even fewer carbs, about 3.5 g per portion.

Please see Anne's instructions at Diet Doctor site here

Perfect for summer days ...

All the best Jan

That sounds so sweet and refreshing. I'm eating some blueberries in cottage cheese for my snack this afternoon...with some grapefruit slices on it too! Enjoy your weekend!

That looks delightful. When summer comes round again I will have to remember (though I am perfectly happy with fruit just as it is).
