Rich and Creamy Black Raspberry Ice Cream May 27 2017, 0 Comments

Super Simple Black Raspberry Ice Cream

Now that the weather is finally starting to warm back up, it's always a good excuse to indulge in ice cream! This black raspberry ice cream could not be simpler. There's no need to cook and strain any berries. Instead, we used our Black Raspberry Extract. No extra work required, and the taste is pure, sweet and delicious!

 Here's how we made it:


  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 (more or less to your taste) teaspoons BerriHealth's Black Raspberry Extract
  • 4 ounces chopped semisweet chocolate (add more or less if you like and save some to sprinkle on top)



Combine milk, sugar and salt in a medium bowl.  Whisk the ingredients together until the sugar has completely dissolved. Add the cream, vanilla and Black Raspberry Extract and stir with a rubber spatula until nicely blended. Now cover the bowl and pop it in the refrigerator for 2 hours or overnight is fine too. After the cream mixture has chilled, pour it in your ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer's instructions. Toward the end of the churning cycle, add the chopped chocolate.  Serve immediately for a soft ice cream or freeze for a couple of hours for a firmer ice cream. Top with some chopped or shaved chocolate. Simply delicious!

Now, if you have a bit more time and want a creamier custard, try this recipe from the New York Times: The Master Ice Cream Recipe.  Blend in about 6 - 8 teaspoons of Black Raspberry extract (you can always add more!) before putting the cream mixture in the refrigerator.

How much you add is up to you. For a subtle hint of special sweetness, blend in just a couple of teaspoons. For a complex fruity burst of flavor, add ⅛ - ¼ cup of extract to about 2 cups of sauce. The fun part will be you get to do a lot of taste testing!

Refreshing Black Raspberry OJ Spritzer July 24 2014, 0 Comments



Beating the Summer Heat 

As we slowly march into the middle of summer, we seem to stumble across those inescapably hot and humid days with more frequency.  Sometimes it is nice to whip up a quick, refreshing drink that tastes good but has more than just sugar in it.  We experimented with a lot of cool combinations, but one of our favorites was this simple orange juice spritzer.  It's easy to make, only has a few ingredients, and we've already put it to use on a few hot days in the last couple of weeks.


  • ½ - 1 teaspoon Black Raspberry Extract
  • ½ cup of orange juice
  • Club soda
  • Ice
  • Fresh orange slice


Pour about ½ cup or more of orange juice into a large glass. Stir in ½ - 1 teaspoon of Black Raspberry extract and club soda.  Add plenty of ice, a slice of fresh orange and sip on a frosty spritzer with healthy black raspberry nutrients.
