Guest Blogger: Kohlrabi and Quince – Cucumber Ice Cream

24 Aug

Great to see bloggers come back! This is Kelly’s second time posting with VBU!, click here to read about her first contribution post from her blog Kohlrabi and Quince. You can connect with Kelly on Twitter or her blog Facebook page. Please welcome back Kelly!


Right now, my most prolific garden plant is the cucumber. I’ve been eating them (and drinking them) like crazy.

This means I’ve felt the need to get creative with them, so, today, I made ice cream. It’s awesome. Sweet and cucumbery with a hint of ginger and vanilla. Next time, I’ll make sure I have candied ginger in the house and I’ll throw a handful of it into the ice cream instead of the ground ginger.

Cucumber Ice Cream

2 6-inch cucumbers
2 tbsp powdered sugar
2 tbsp Dark Agave Syrup
2 tsp ground ginger
2 cups non-dairy creamer (I actually used 2 cups of Rich’s Non-dairy Whipped Topping, and liquid Soyatoo would work just fine too)

Blend cucumbers in food processor until you have a smooth, thick liquid. It should be 1-1.5 cups of thick liquid. Process powdered sugar, agave, and ginger until mixed well.

Fold in whipped topping. (You can whip it up a bit, which will make for an awesome fluffy ice cream)

Add to ice cream maker for 30ish minutes, or until frozen.

    This sounds terrifying and delicious all at the same time. 🙂
