Berry Fruity Dream

This is such a quick, easy and delicious dessert which is a great dairy-free substitute for ice-cream.  Make it in your Thermomix at your next dinner party and your guests are sure to be impressed!  It always fascinates me the way the frozen, ground up berries whip up to fill the whole bowl – it’s beautiful!  Thanks to Bron for this recipe, which she posted on the Thermomix Forum as Strawberry Foam… I just changed it a little as I found it way too sweet for my taste.  You can use any frozen fruit (cut into small chunks) – strawberries, mango, peach, nectarine – whatever you like.  Eat it straight away, or freeze and serve as a fluffy ice-cream – it doesn’t freeze solid, because of the egg whites.  Enjoy!

Voila!  A dreamy dessert! 

Decorate with insecticide free rose petals if liked

You can use practically any type of frozen fruit, or a mixture of different fruits.  You can also use honey instead of Rapadura to sweeten – use about 60g of honey, or to taste, added with the fruit.

    Why on earth did I wait so long to make this!!!. I made a blackberry/raspberry combination. Was a hit!

    Hi Jo, if I wanted to cut out sugar, could I substitute rice malt syrup for the rapadura? If so, what quantity should I use and when?

  7. Kia says:

    We made this with no sweetener- Just frozen berries and egg whites. Came out perfect. Sweet enough for my little family. X

    Just made this in my Tefal Cuisine Companion – amazing. Hubby not a fan so I am going to be eating it for a few days. Can you halve the recipe.

    • QuirkyJo says:

      Not sure, would need to blend without the butterfly whisk, and then insert butterfly and whip. I don’t think it would be as fluffy though.

  9. Kate says:

    You can re whip from frozen, go back to the pulverize step and then instead of adding the egg white I just put in a heaped spoon of thick yogurt (about 40g), popped the butterfly in and followed as per recipe. Came out just as fluffy as the original!

    Hi Jo, I only have coconut sugar ATM, do you think the flavour will work or should i just go get some rapadura?

    • QuirkyJo says:

      The egg whites and the frozen fruit is what thickens this recipe, so if your watermelon wasn’t frozen that could have made it a bit watery! Adding more frozen fruit could help! Or even popping it in the freezer to harden and re-blending in the Thermomix could work 🙂 Hope this helps!
