After the surprising success of Blueberry Lavender Ice Cream in a Blendtec Blender, we decided to experiment and try Raspberry Rose. While the recipe wasn’t as successful as an ice cream, it made AMAZING ice cream pops that the kids and I LOVED! We can’t wait to make more.
Read on for this simple and delicious ice cream treat recipe and to find out who won the Blendtec Designer Series Blender and Twister Jar.
1 1/4 cup Half & Half (or 3/4 cup Heavy Cream & 1/2 cup Whole Milk, if that’s what you have on hand, like me)
1/4 teaspoon Natural Rose Extract (feel free to adjust to taste)
3 Tablespoons Sugar
2 1/4 cup Frozen Raspberries
Step 1. Add rose flavor to cream mixture.
Step 2: Add cream mixture to blender
Step 3: Add sugar to blender
Step 4. Add Raspberries to blender
Step 5: Press Ice Cream button on blender.
At this point I was expecting to be able to serve it up as ice cream but the consistency was not as thick as the blueberry lavender, and also the raspberry seeds were very noticeable, but since the flavor was outstanding, we decided to fill up some ice pop molds and experiment.
The pops froze up quickly and the ice cream pop consistency blended the berry seed texture well. My kids have been asking for more of these unique and all natural ice cream pops ever since..
