As I’ve mentioned before, a Pantry Challenge is only as good as the things that you keep on hand in the fridge, freezer, or pantry. If you buy things that you don’t really love, you will be stuck eating those things during the challenge. That’s bad in the short term; it’s good in the long term.

If you’ve shopped unwisely, a challenge — and forcing yourself to use up whatever those icky things are — will teach you to shop more wisely and in tune with your eating habits and goals.

Having cream, milk, and sugar on hand is a good thing. Also chocolate chips and coconut oil. Then you can feel like a rockstar mom when you whip up a homemade ice cream with little bits of chocolate in it. Yeah, baby.

The apricots or whatever fruit you have on hand are bonus. Just add a cup of fruit puree to the mix and you’re good to go. I recommend straining the puree before adding it to the milk mixture. I didn’t this week. Instead I was lazy. There were tiny bits of the pit’s outer coating (you know the stuff that sometimes sticks to the inside of the stone fruit?) in the ice cream. Tiny bits aside, this is a delicious fruit flavored ice cream.

I adapted my regular vanilla ice cream for this recipe. It’s much more affordable than storebought, and tastes amazing! Adding the apricot and chocolate is a great variation.

  1. This reminds me of one of my favorite snacks in ice cream form. I often eat dried apricots with chocolate chips for a quick snack or simple dessert. Try it – you’ll like it! Thanks so much for the recipe.
