Chillover Blueberry Sherbet

 We are experimenting with Chillover Powder (alternative for animal gelatin), and have come up with this recipe to share.  Again, it's all experimental.

Chillover Blueberry Sherbet
3 cups frozen blueberries, thawed
1/2 cup sugar
Juice from 1 fresh lime
2 tsp. Chillover Powder
2 cups organic low-fat buttermilk

Place thawed blueberries in a medium saucepan.  Sprinkle sugar, lime juice, and Chillover powder, over the blueberries and let sit about 2-3 minutes.

Heat the blueberry mixture on medium heat until it bubbles, stirring constantly, and heat approximately 3 minutes.  Remove from heat.

Stir in Buttermilk.  Pour mixture into a freezer safe container and freeze for 4 hours or more, until it has the texture of pudding.

Remove it from the freezer, and puree it, in 2 batches, in a blender or food processor.  Place it back in the freezer over night. 

To serve:  remove from freezer, and let thaw about 5-6 minutes before serving. 

ENJOY!   (6-8 servings)
