The New Year is a great time to put some habits that aren't serving you to the back and pick up some new ones that suite your body much better. I know how much everyone likes ice cream, but the ice cream (even the dairy-free kinds) in the store are not healthy for you, they are loaded with too much sugar, dyes, and fillers. Today I'm sharing a recipe from Alisa Fleming's new book "Eat Dairy Free" True Blue Raspberry Sherbet so you can give your old ice cream eating habits the boot and make some dairy free ice cream that is soooo delicious, healthy and easy!
No better time to ditch the dairy then in 2018, If you haven't tried to eliminate dairy from your diet yet, then what are you waiting for?
"Specifically, women consuming one or more servings per day of high-fat dairy had a 64 percent higher risk of dying from any cause and a 49 percent increased risk of dying from their breast cancer during the follow-up period."
That said only one serving or more of dairy per day!! Whoa! Ladies now is the time to make a change!

True Blue Raspberry Sherbet from Eat Dairy Free by Alisa Fleming
Makes About 1 Quart
Everywhere I turn, food manufacturers are adding “blue raspberry” to their flavor lineups. Since it is nothing more than blue food coloring and sugar, I decided to create this sweet and lightly creamy dessert that highlights the taste of all-natural blue(berry)-raspberry.
3/4 to 1 cup blueberries (optionally pureed and strained)
3/4 to 1 cup raspberry puree (about 8 ounces raspberries, pureed and strained)
1 (14-ounce) can full-fat coconut milk or coconut cream
1/2 cup sugar (can substitute agave nectar)
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum or guar gum (optional, to help prevent ice crystals)
1. Put the berries, puree, coconut milk or cream, sugar, lemon juice, and gum (if using) in your blender and blend until smooth.
2. Refrigerate the berry mixture for at least 1 hour. Ensure that you have frozen the insert for your ice cream maker for at least 24 hours, if directed in the manufacturer’s instructions.
3. Churn the berry mixture in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
4. Pack the soft sherbet into a freezer-safe container and freeze for several hours or overnight for hard-packed ice cream. If it becomes too solid, let it sit at room temperature for 10 minutes before scooping.
No Ice Cream Maker?
Freeze the chilled mixture in ice cube trays. When ready to eat, pop out the cubes and blend in a food processor or high-powered blender until smooth. It will be crumbly at first, but will soften and ball up as it blends.
