    Okay ... so I cannot have ice-cream to cool me down in the hot weather ... but I CAN have ice cold plain yogurt, mixed with double cream and yummy sweet British Strawberries and Raspberries! Mmmmm But has anyone tried maybe blending this all together and trying to freeze into ice-cream, as I'm wonderingb if it will work?

    Use frozen berries, no need to freeze. Yummy indeed.

    It could work, but if you don't have one of those magic ice cream making machines you would need to take it out of the freezer every half hour or so and give it a good stir to stop ice crystals forming until it was ice cream consistency.

    I got an icecream maker recently - not at all expensive and it even came with two bowls - works really well.

    Frozen berries in a blender with a splash of real vanilla and pour cream over top. I do it often and it makes a nice ice cream type treat!!!

    I put frozen raspberries plus cream and yog into a blender a wizzed it up.
    Yes I think so the only problem I found with raspberries was the pips got blitzed as well so the resulting ice cream was a bit "sandy" in texture and spent the 1/2 hour following picking the bits out of my teeth. Strawberries would probably be better for this (I just don't specially like them). Or maybe blitz them for less time in the blender.
