Blueberry Lime Ice Cream, A Healthier version?

Which picture is the the healthier version of  Foodalution's Blueberry Lime Ice Cream?  If you said the picture on the top, you would be right. However, the healthier version didn't taste like the original version. After we made the Vanilla Vanilla Ice Cream, I posted that maybe the next batch of ice cream that we make, might be healthier.  So we used modified Foodalution's recipe, substituting 2 pints of half and half  with 2 pints of whole milk, and one pint of whipping cream for 1 pint of half and half..   The recipe made more ice cream than our machine would hold, so we only did half  of the healthier version.  What we got was more like sherbet or ice milk, definitely not the same consistency. So, then I went to the store and bought heavy whipping cream and half and half to make the original recipe with the remaining blueberry mixture  The original version is on the bottom,. so yummy and creamy.

So what do we do with the healthier version of the Blueberry Lime ice milk?  Stay tuned and read my next post. A hint, something about cookies!
