Strawberry Cacao Ice Cream

We finally made it to strawberry season here in Seattle (or should I say, I finally made it to the farmer’s market?).  Life has been very busy going to medical school full time with a toddler, and this summer I started working as a secondary clinician at the Bastyr Center for Natural Health.  I have been wanting to write a post sharing my thoughts with you on eating organic, particularly before I posted another food recipe, but with strawberry season almost out the window, I had to share this with you.

I call it ice cream, but its not made in the ice cream maker (although I should try it in my new Cuisinart ice cream maker, but I’ve been too busy experimenting with chai ice cream).  This concoction satisfies all my desires for ice cream with its smooth consistency, sweet flavor, and microcosmic crunch from the cacao nibs.  Because it’s a blender treat, it does melt fast, but I tend to enjoy drinking what turns into a milkshake with a spoon.  I can’t wait for you to try it!

    this looks so good! I want to try it in my new vitamix. Can you get cacao nibs at whole foods? I have never heard of them before.

    Emily, I have not checked whole foods but I get mine at Central Market. I think the ones at Central Market are from Theo Chocolate. Cacao nibs are very high in antioxidants too!

    YUM!!! My favorite part is that Archerfriendly also = erikafriendly. I’m trying an orange poppyseed cake this weekend…glutenfree, dairyfree, soyfree made with almond flour. It does have sugar though…I wonder if Stevia or Honey would work. I’ll let you know.
