Black Raspberry Ice Cream THM S

Homemade ice cream is always a favorite and what flavor is better than Black Raspberry? This ice cream flavor bring back memories of a small dairy in my childhood years that made ice cream on the farm. Their Black Raspberry was the best. With this recipe I have tried to duplicate what I remember of my childhood favorite. I found this Cuisinart Ice Cream Freezer at a thrift store and I love it. It is very easy to use and very child friendly.

Black Raspberry Ice Cream THM S

  • 2 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¾ cup cottage cheese
  • ½ cup whipping cream
  • ¾ cup Black Raspberry juice, steamed berries to make my own juice
  • 1/3 cup THM Gentle Sweet
  • 2 cups coconut milk, cartoned
  • 2 eggs
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable glycerin
  • Soften unflavored gelatin in water for 10 minutes. Heat until dissolved. Blend cottage cheese, cream and raspberry juice together until smooth. Wash eggs thoroughly before cracking. Add gelatin mixture, Gentle Sweet, coconut milk, eggs, salt, and glycerin. Blend until well combined. Freeze in a 1.5-quart table top ice cream freezer following manufacturer’s instructions.

Having your ice cream mixture very cold will help it to freeze faster. Using Glycerin keeps the ice cream scoopable in the freezer if you have any leftover.

Plum Jam THM-E

This is a great time of the year when orchard begin to give of their bounty. Plums are a delicious tart/sweet fruit and we enjoy them picked ripe from the trees. This Plum Jam features four kitchen staple ingredients and has a wonderful flavor. I use unflavored gelatin in almost all of the jams I make and they store very well. The jam will need to be refrigerated to thicken. This evening I found my teenage son eating the jam from the jar by the spoonfuls! That’s just how good it is.

The Perfect Cheesecake THM-S, Keto Friendly

Cheesecakes have always been a favorite dessert of mine to make for special occasion. They are one of the easiest dessert to make sugar-free and low-carb and they taste just like the sugar-laden ones do. When I take a cheesecake to carry-in dinners I always come home with an empty plate. Separating the eggs and whipping the egg whites stiff give a wonderful light texture. You can also bake this cheesecake in a 9 x 13 pan if your prefer is you do not have a springform pan. Sometimes I omit the sour cream topping and just serve it with whipped cream and fresh berries.

Cherry Pinwheel Finger Jello THM-FP

Finger Jello is always a highlight for children at picnics and potlucks. These Pinwheels are easy to make and feature unflavored gelatin which is good for your health. Each flavor is whisked together using my favorite stainless steel whisk before it is poured in layers in a 10 x 15 baking pan. Cherry and Strawberry Kool Aid are 2 kinds that I have found that do not have maltodextrin listed as an ingredient so I use them as a handy Drive-thru-Sue ingredient. If you need a snack to keep in your fridge this summer for your children, I’m sure they would love these pinwheels. Sour cream maybe substituted for the Greek Yogurt for an S setting if you prefer.
