Fruit Gelato

I found the recipe for this here and tried it tonight, it was really good and so simple!


* 12 oz. bag of frozen fruit of choice
* 1/3 cup of sugar
* 1/2 cup of heavy cream

Whir them all together in a food processor or blender until it's completely smooth.

Wow, easy huh?

This can be served right away at the consistency of a soft serve ice cream, or you can stick it in a container in the freezer for a couple of hours to harden, we weren't patient enough for that, we ate it right away and it was so good!

I actually used about 18 oz of fruit (a bag of frozen strawberries and a banana I had peeled and tossed in a zipper bag into the freezer a month or two ago so that it could get used instead of going bad and being tossed out)
With 18 oz of fruit I decided to do 3/4 of a cup of cream and about 1/2 cup of sugar. My blender was having a little bit of a tough time (I think a food processor might do it easier but I don't have one) so I added a dash more cream part way through to get all of the fruit blended.
