MASH UP THE FRUIT!
After making the custard and pouring the whole thing into the machine, I knew something wasn't right. In a panic, I fished out some of the fruit fruit with a spoon then started smashing them with a fork. It wasn't cute. Because I am a Libra (always searching for balance/somewhat noncommittal) I squished half of the berries and left the other half whole. What I learned:
- Squish all of the berries. The whole, frozen berries lacked flavor and were too big to chew comfortably.
- Strain the berries after mashing them. The seeds were bitter and got in the way of fully enjoying all those calories.
- This is just a personal preference but I realized I don't love large amounts of heavy whipping cream.
