Freeze Dried Blueberries

Today I pulled out the Freeze Dried Blueberries and my kids were SUPER excited. They love the Freeze Dried Fruit! Here are the 3 things we used Blueberries for (we did NOT re-hydrate):

1. Sprinkled it (do you really "sprinkle" blueberries, or do you toss them??) into our cottage cheese.


2. Snacked on them

3. Used them as a topping in our Homemade Ice Cream......My kids loved it and it help me justify the ice cream by throwing on some fruit....ha, ha!!

Homemade Ice Cream Recipe:
1 cup Whole Milk
1/2 cup Sugar
dash of Salt
2/3 cup Half and Half
1/2 cup Whipping Cream
1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
(I am sure it was Calorie Friendly....but that is what makes it so good, right??!)

Combine milk, sugar, and salt. Stir with wire whisk until sugar is dissolved. 
Stir in rest of ingredients.
I then poured mixture into my ice cream machine and patiently waited for it to be done!

Tomorrow, we are pulling out the Freeze Dried Strawberries and making homemade Strawberry Sorbet.  Hmmm....hmmmmmm.....can't wait! So stay tuned!
