Ingredients

Easy "Mock" Vanilla Ice Cream, recipe follows

8 large strawberries, whole

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon sugar substitute (recommended: Splenda)

Easy "Mock" Vanilla Ice Cream:

1 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup sugar substitute (recommended: Splenda)

1 1/2 teaspoons no sugar added vanilla extract

2 tablespoons whole milk ricotta cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat grill to high. Prepare mock ice cream as directed. In a bowl, coat strawberries with the balsamic vinegar and sugar substitute. Place strawberries on the hot grill to mark, only about 1 or 2 minutes. Remove from heat and serve a couple grilled berries in the Champagne glass with the "mock" vanilla ice cream. Cook's Note: Garnish with low carb whipped cream, toasted almonds, a strawberry fan, and a sprig of fresh mint, if desired.

Easy "Mock" Vanilla Ice Cream:

  1. With an electric mixer on high, whip the heavy cream in a bowl just until frothy. Add in the sugar substitute, vanilla, and ricotta cheese, and continue to whip on high until peaks form. Be careful not to over-whip, or cream will break. Using a 3-ounce ice cream scoop, place one scoop in each Champagne glass. Freeze to make "faux" ice cream, or serve refrigerated as a parfait.
