Rainbow Fruit and Yogurt Layered Ice Cream

October 10, 2015

Rainbow Fruit and Yogurt Layered Ice Cream is filled with delicious sweet raspberries, blueberries, and kiwi whipped with coconut vanilla yogurt and frozen in a rainbow of PINK, white, purple and kiwi ice cream layers.Rainbow Layered Fruit and Yogurt Ice Cream

Rainbow Layered Fruit and Yogurt Ice Cream is so healthy that you could eat it for breakfast and I have on several occasions this week. It is like just eating fruit and yogurt but 100 times more fun!!! I love berries and yogurt. In addition, berries are the preferred fruit if you are trying to maintain a diabetic friendly diet. However, you can use any fruit your little heart desires.  Frozen fruits are even better as they help the layers freeze faster and that is very a good thing.

I used unsweetened vanilla coconut yogurt to keep it dairy free, diabetic friendly and paleo friendly but you can use any yogurt you like. However if you do not need to worry about those things, then you could just add a vanilla yogurt and all you would need to do is add the fruit.

I know it looks complicated but trust me anyone can do it, it is SO easy. The hardest part is just waiting to eat it until it is frozen. Do you have a little loaf pan to make bread? If you do go find it and line it with plastic wrap both ways that is long enough to provide cover for it whilst it is in the freezer. Then, crack out your food processor, your frozen berries and your yogurt and whiz them up and put in 4 separate containers. Then you just freeze one layer at a time, let it freeze over night and then like magic you have a healthy and delicious dessert. How easy is that!?!

I love those pretty PINK layers of the fruit and yogurt. It is the time of the year that we need to be thinking about PINK. Lots of PINK ribbons. Lots of PINK food and lots of MRI's and girly checkups.

October is breast awareness month. Today, this message goes out to you all of you lovely girls and women to please take care of yourself and get checked. Breast cancer is not something that happens to everyone else, it can happen to you too. This week my heart is very heavy as I have just found out that a very dear friend has just been diagnosed with breast cancer this week. However, they have caught it very early and we are very optimistic and sending loads of prayers and well wishes her way. To my dearest friend, this post is for you sending you positive thoughts and hugs from Hong Kong to you.

This month, Kitchen Aid is hosting a "Cook for the Cure" campaign that has many different ways you can help from everything as simple as baking pink cupcakes and taking a photo and uploading it to twitter and instagram, to hosting a party for the breast cancer cause, to purchasing a pink Kitchen Aid mixer and part of the proceeds go to breast cancer research and awareness. Of course there are many other corporations out there that are working towards a cure but this one was geared towards foodies, so thought I would share it with you today. (Please note that Bam's Kitchen is NOT affiliated with Kitchen Aid in any way)

Delicious sweet strawberries, blueberries, and kiwi whipped with dairy free yogurt and frozen in rainbow layers.

  • Cook: 8 hrs
  • Yields: 8 Adults or 1 Hungry Teenager

Ingredients

yogurt - 24 ounces or about 680 grams ( I used unsweetened vanilla coconut dairy free yogurt)

rasberries - 2 cups or about 250 grams and a handful reserved for garnish (I used frozen but you can use fresh as well)

blueberries - 2 cups or about 250 grams (I used frozen but you could use fresh as well)

kiwi - 2 peeled and sliced (you can use other berries or fruit in season)

sugar or sugar alternative - honey to taste (if diabetic then sugar alternative of choice to taste)

Directions

1Line loaf pan with cling wrap in both directions and make the cling wrap long enough to cover the Rainbow Fruit and Yogurt Layered Ice Cream while in the freezer.

2In a food processor add your raspberries and pulse until little icy flakes, if using frozen raspberries (if you do not have a food processor then chop raspberries finely with a knife) add 6 ounces of yogurt and either honey or sugar alternative of choice to desired level of sweetness and mix well. Add the raspberry and yogurt mix to the bottom of the cling wrap lined loaf pan and spread evenly. Place the pan in the freezer while you prepare the other ingredients.

3In a bowl mix 6 ounces of yogurt and sugar alternative or honey to desired sweetness. After the loaf pan with the raspberry and yogurt mixture has been in the freezer for 15 minutes, add the sweetened vanilla yogurt on top of the raspberry yogurt layer and carefully spread evenly. Return the pan to the freezer while you prepare the other 2 layers.

4Wash your food processor. Add blueberry and pulse until little ice flakes, if using frozen blueberries (if you do not have a food processor then chop blueberries finely with a knife) add 6 ounces of yogurt and either honey or sugar alternative of choice to desired level of sweetness and mix well. Place the blueberry yogurt mixture in a bowl and set in the refrigerator to keep cool.

5Step 5: Wash your food processor. Add kiwi (or any fruit of choice) and pulse (if you do not have a food processor then chop kiwi finely with a knife) add 6 ounces of yogurt and either honey or sugar alternative of choice to desired level of sweetness and mix well. Place the kiwi and yogurt mixture in a bowl and set in the refrigerator to keep cool.

6Add the blueberry and yogurt mixture to the top of the vanilla yogurt mixture and spread evenly. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes. Then add the final kiwi yogurt layer on top of the blueberry yogurt mixture and spread evenly and cover with the ends of the cling wrap and place back in the freezer for about 6 hours or up to overnight to freeze.

7When ready to enjoy the Rainbow Fruit and Yogurt Layered Ice Cream, remove from the pan using the cling wrap. Unwrap the cling wrap, invert and set on a cutting board. Allow the Rainbow Fruit and Yogurt Layered Ice Cream to set for about 15 minutes at room temperature, slice and enjoy with a few raspberries on top for garnish.

  • Love the colors of this! Really attractive and cheerful looking dessert. Pretty healthy, too. Looks like a company dish to me! Thanks so much.

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thank you John!You can really mix up the fruit and use whatever is in season. Yes this would be a nice company dessert and stress free as you can make it in advance. Have a super weekend

  • This looks like a wonderful, refreshing dessert–and so pretty! It would be great to have it on a warm, sunny day like today! 🙂

    • Bams Kitchen

      Hong Kong has been so hot and humid. Today was the first time I did not have to run the aircon, there was a cool breeze. However, Indian summer should be on its way soon as this fun dessert will really hit the spot.

  • Ahhh!! I saw this on your instagram account and I was waiting with baited breath for your recipe… Looks soooo good. Perfect for our 100 degree weather we’re having 🙂

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thank you dear. Sorry on my delay to get this recipe out. As you know how long it takes to write up a post…. So quick and easy to cook but posting, photography, photo editing, testing the recipe…oh my goodness. LOL

  • This is just so beautiful!! I could definitely go for some right now!

    • Bams Kitchen

      If you lived just a little closer Dawn I could cut you off a few slices. A virtual slice coming your way…

  • This is gorgeous! Lovely colors and a yummy dessert!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thank you Kushi! So pretty in the pink and purple hues…

  • My family would LOVE this.
    Have a super week ahead Bam.
    🙂 Mandy xo

    • Bams Kitchen

      It was so hot here in Hong Kong just until today so humid so this dessert really hit the spot. Wishing you a super week too Mandy!

  • This refreshing dessert is so pretty and reminds me of the many rainbows I saw on my Iceland trip! I hope your friend will recover soon!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Oh my goodness Jasline your trip was amazing and it was so fun traveling along with you on instagram. Thank you for your well wishes for my friend.

  • How pretty is this! I think a layered dessert of any kind is always a treat and special. Lovely colors and flavors here. Perfect for October.

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thank you Monica! I guess if we wanted to do fall colours I would have needed to use mango, maybe a layer of dates and a layer of cranberries. I will give that one a go next time. Take care

  • HOLY MOLY I AM IN LOVEEEE! LOVE I TELL YOU!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thank you, wishing you a super week!

  • Not that is one beautiful dessert! Sometimes when I buy fruit in bulk at Costco it’s hard for the 2 of us to eat it all before it gets too overripe to eat. This would be a great way to use some of the fruit and have it when we’re ready for it. Great little treat Bobbi!

  • I have returned! Gorgeous dessert, BAM! Such a great mix of colors and sure to receive oohs and aahs as you bring it to table. Love, too, that it’s not full of sugar or heavy cream. It’s not nearly as heavy as many ice cream desserts.
    This is it for me. Buona notte, BAM! 🙂

  • That looks too pretty to eat, but I’d eat it anyway, lol. So sorry about your friend. Sending prayers her way. I got my mammogram last week and now they’re calling me back to redo it. They found something suspicious, but I’m optimistic. Here’s to healthy “boo bees”!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Dearest Jas, I am sending lots of prayers and hoping that it was just an operator error and you are fine. I am always here for you, day or night so just drop me a line as I am here for you! Hugs!

  • OH! I am so much in love with this ‘Rainbow Fruit and Yogurt Layered Ice Cream’. This is indeed so delicious with luscious raspberries, blueberries, and kiwi whipped, And that coconut vanilla yogurt is beyod yum.

  • hotlyspiced

    Lovely Bam! It’s so pretty. I love all the layers. I like how this can be made dairy-free as well. I’m very sorry to hear about your friend and I do wish her well with her recovery. My cousin who lives in Switzerland has also just been diagnosed. She’s had the surgery and is now having chemo – all very unpleasant xx

  • What a pretty dessert and kinda healthy too. (Thanks for the reminder for regular checkups too)

  • What a beautiful way to support breast cancer awareness. I love all the layers in this ice cream. I’m sorry to hear about your friend, but glad that she was able to detect the symptoms early and get treatment asap. This really cancer does touch too many people we know and love!

  • Bobbi – this is gorgeous! Love these layers and the fact that this Rainbow Layered Fruit and Yogurt Ice Cream is gluten and dairy free! I am a huge fan of any treat that is healthy enough that I could eat it for breakfast! 🙂

  • What a beautiful layered ice cream Bobbi! I have learned to check my breast every year since the age of 19. Pinned and stumbled!

  • Brilliant & oh so clever you are!!! Love that this is dairy free, diabetic friendly and paleo friendly too. I am making this beauty on the weekend. Really loving all the amazing recipes I am finding now I am on this strict diet, there really is no reason to eat badly huh?! Tweeting the bajinkas out of this. 🙂

  • It is not ice cream season in my part of the world, yet this healthy dessert can be enjoyed any season. I would like a slice now and it is so easy and does not require special kitchen tools… I really love that.
    Sorry to hear about your friend and I hope she will be ok soon and it will be contained. I was glad to know it is in the early stages, will so much increase her chance to defeat it. Tell her to stay strong from me.

  • Now this looks fabulously beautiful! I made something that was similar from a Martha Stewart recipe on what must have been the hottest day of the year. Crazy me…I didn’t read everything all the way through and only realized after I started that the estimated time to MAKE was 6 hours. Of course hers involved fresh fruit that had to be bsolied or puréed, was about 8 layers, and for some inexplicable reason she had you making one layer at a time, letting it freeze, then using the pan for the next layer…seriously. Once I caught on to her one pan at a time game, I sent my husband for a few more pans. Trust me, I’m going with your version!

  • This is almost to gorgeous to eat, but I would give it my best try!
