For those of you living in the U.S, I hope you had a fabulous July 4th holiday weekend. My mum, dad, sister, brother-in-law, and my niece and nephew have all been staying with us for the past 3 weeks, and we hosted a holiday party with our closest friends to celebrate their last day in America.
I served this instant pineapple coconut ice cream, and it was the perfect refreshing treat in the hot L.A weather. This all-but-instant ice cream is so easy and so delicious. It takes less than 10 minutes to throw together, and it tastes like a virgin pina colada.
One of my top tips for making natural heathy frozen desserts is to blend up a base of creamy milk and fresh dates, and then add your frozen fruit. The dates don't overpower the other flavors, and deliver a well balanced sweetness to boost the natural sweetness of your fruit.
One of my favorite features of the new KitchenAid® Pro Line® Series blender is the tamper with the flex edge spatula attached. When you're making ice creams, puddings, and other desserts, the spatula allows you to scrape down the sides of the container, burst air pockets that form when blending thick mixes, evenly distribute the blend, and completely control the texture of the finished product while the machine is running.
This is just one way that KitchenAid® is elevating the experience in the high-speed blender space. For a complete rundown on all of the features of this amazing new blender, check out my Tess-timonal video.
You snag your Pro Line® Series blender at Williams-Sonoma. There is a base model for $499 and an upgraded model with pre-programmed settings and a dual-wall container for $599. Both machines have the same powerful motor. The blender will be available in other retailers in the United States and in stores in Europe and Australia in September and October.
You can see all of my recipes and videos using the new blender at BlendWithKitchenAid.com.
