Introducing my luscious Kakadu Plum and Blueberry Ice Cream.
This recipe was inspired after I was enlisted by Natural Instinct to come up with a bunch of lunchtime recipes using ingredients featured in their skincare range. You can read a review of the range here.
One of the challenges was to use an interesting native ingredient called Kakadu plum which was used traditionally by Australian Aboriginals as an antiseptic and soothing balm for aching limbs.
With more than twenty times the vitamin C content of oranges I was eager to try out this Supercharged Food and create a gourmet dessert that was not only simple to make but also healthy and delicious.

Kakadu plum or gabinge powder is available in health food stores or I bought mine online at the Bush Food Shop.
