Healthy Berry Swirl Ice Cream!  It’s ice cream at its best without the refined white sugar, excess heavy cream and eggs.  Here we've got a sweet and creamy vanilla ice cream that's swirled with generous spoonfuls of two all-natural berry jams.

Ingredients

Ice Cream:

  • 32 oz Plain, Nonfat Greek Yogurt
  • 16 oz Organic Half and Half
  • 2 tsp Liquid Stevia Extract
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract or Vanilla Paste
  • 1 tsp Xanthan Gum
  • ¼ tsp Salt

Blackberry Swirl:

  • cup 100% Fruit BlackBerry Fruit Spread
  • 2 tbs Lemon Juice

Strawberry Swirl:

  • cup 100% Fruit Strawberry Spread
  • 2 tbs Lemon Juice

Instructions

  • In an electric stand mixer bowl fitted with a whisk attachment, add the yogurt, half and half, stevia extract and vanilla paste.  Turn the stand mixer on low speed.  Mix until smooth.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the xanthan gum and salt.  With the stand mixer running, sprinkle in the dry ingredients.  Increase the mixer speed to medium.
  • Churn the ice cream batter according to your ice cream machine’s instructions.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the blackberry spread and lemon juice.  In another small bowl, whisk together the strawberry spread and lemon juice.
  • Scoop ⅓ of the ice cream into a freezer-proof container (I used an extra tall loaf pan), spread it out, then spread on ¾ of the blackberry jam mixture.  Scoop another ⅓ of the ice cream on top, spread it out, then spread on ¾ of the strawberry jam mixture.  Scoop the remaining ice cream on top, spread it out, then drizzle on both of the remaining fruit spreads.  Cover and freeze until it's the texture you prefer (for me, it takes around 3 hours).  Serve and enjoy!

  1. LOVE this recipe!! I’m gonna make this for my ice-cream pie for Memorial Day weekend! Thank you for sharing 🙂 Ice cream is my favorite dessert EVER. 

  2. There nothing I love more then a  huge bowl of ice cream on a warm summer day!  I’m super happy that this ice cream is healthy, it means I can eat more of it :p

  3. hey! do you need to stir the mixture every 30 minutes for three hours or pop it into the freezer and forget about it?

  4. This looks SO creamy! Now I want to dig in–and can I have this for brekkie ?? 😉

  5. I made it this afternoon and ate some as soft serve and — OH MY GOODNESS IT WAS THE BEST ICE CREAM I’VE EVER HAD! When I took my first bite, I said “Oh wow I’m eating real ice cream… with sugar and cream!” Except this is healthy — so I wasn’t. Thank you so much for the recipe!
