Lemon Artichoke Ice Cream


The month of August is HOT in Eastern Washington where I spend the summer months. You might have thought of Washington as always being cool and wet, but some guests have commented on how the weather reminds them of Egypt.  Yes, you heard me right - Egypt!  Just last week we had temperatures of 107 degrees…in the evening!

Honestly, my biggest craving in this kind of heat is ice cream for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  This doesn't exactly align with my passion for promoting a healthy diet of fresh fruits and veggies, so I came up with an amazing recipe to satisfy both my passion and my craving for ice cream!  Using rich and creamy fresh artichoke hearts and refreshing lemons, my Lemon Artichoke Ice Cream is the very best of both worlds!


During the summer heat, I only microwave inside the house to keep it cool. Ocean Mist Farms' microwaveable Season & Steam Artichokes are my go-to solution, and they come out perfect every time!

And to eliminate the hassle of old-fashioned ice cream makers, I found a personal size one for under $20 that is super easy to use and small enough to tuck away in the cabinet.  It makes a perfect pint of ice cream in 20 minutes! You can find counter top ice cream makers in most stores that carry small kitchen appliance.

Here’s wishing you health, happiness and a dish of delicious summer coolness!  Enjoy!
