4 ounces full-fat cream cheese (softened)
1/4 cup monk fruit sugar substitute
1 1/2 heavy cream
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup mashed blueberries (can be frozen if using food processor)
In a large container, blend the cream cheese and the monk fruit sugar substitute. A whisk or a hand electric mixer or food processor can be used for this process. I find an electric mixer makes the process quicker, however this whole recipe will work with just about any mixer.
Once the two ingredients are fully incorporated which should take around 5 minutes, slowly add the heavy cream and keep mixing until the mixture starts to become fluffy and soft. When the mix becomes firmer you will know it is time to move to the next step.
Continue by adding your almond milk and the mashed blueberry. This process should be slowly blended, preferable using a spatula or the food processor in slow mode with frequent stops to scoop in any residue. Once you see the mixture is setting and starts to thicken up which should take 5-7 minutes it’s time to move to the next step.
Finally, transfer your mixture to a shallow freezer safe container, seal it and cure it in the freezer for 2-3 hours to serve firm. At this stage you can add fresh blueberries or any other topping you like mixed with the ice cream.
Finally, you can now add your toppings and enjoy!
