Blueberry Lime Ice

Another one from the Golden Door.
Get out the Vitamix or food processor quick! You will want this delicious treat right away. Unfortunately you have to wait until it sets up in the freezer before to can whip it into shape.

3 pints of fresh or frozen blueberries
1/2 cup fresh orange juice (2 oranges)
3 TB thawed frozen apple juice concentrate
3 TB fresh lime juice (2 limes)
6-12 orange slices for serving (optional)
6 springs of mint of serving (optional)

In a shallow glass pan combine berries and juices. Stir well and cover. Place in freezer for 3-6 hours. (I used frozen blueberries so it only took 1 1/2)
When the mixture is frozen, remove and let stand for 10 minutes. With metal spoon, break up the frozen fruit into smaller pieces. Transfer the mixture to food processor or Vitamix. Process till smooth and creamy. 5-8 minutes.
Serve immediately or freeze for up to an hour and process again.
To serve, place a scoop or two in a martini glasses and garnish with blueberries, orange slices, and mint.
My husband gave it a 10. (on a scale of 1-10) That is a very rare thing!

PS i think it would taste awesome with some whipped coconut cream by its side.
