How does a Vitamix make Ice Cream?

How does a Vitamix make Ice Cream? It’s pretty simple and we’re going to show you with a favourite fruit of mine… Watermelon! Watermelon would have to be on of my favourite fruits. Mix it with coconut and you have yourself a flavour sensation! I love this ice cream recipe. It’s simple to make and requires minimal ingredients.

Watermelon is considered a nutrient dense food which provides a high amount of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants whilst being low in calories. It has a great source of Vitamin C, helps reduce blood pressure, helps promote regularity and a healthy digestive tract. It’s made up of 92% water and is full of important electrolytes to help you stay hydrated especially in those warm summer days! It’s a great anti-inflammatory and helps you recover from muscle soreness.
