    WOW, Amy! That looks absolutely incredible. I love how you take one recipe that doesn’t turn out as well as expected and tweak it with your magic. ;-) Can’t wait to try this one! Thanks so much for the shout out, too. Need to make that Honey Cinnamon Grand Marnier ice cream again soon. It was so hot here a few days ago that all I wanted to eat was ice cream. I was too busy to make any, but it’s time to get out the ice cream maker when I return from Asheville! Thanks, Amy!

    Wow Amy, this sounds amazing. I would have never thought to put whole grains into ice cream. I bet it gives a lot of body. Can’t wait to give it a try! I love vita-mix ice cream! We make one often for the kids by blending up cashews and a vanilla bean in a little water then we add frozen bananas, cherries, and blueberries (and a little water just to get it blended if needed). Serve immediately.

    You read my mind! I’ve been on the hunt lately for a pudding or frozen treat recipe to make now that the weather is getting warmer. This looks delicious!

    Ali, your cashew-vanilla version of vita-mix ice cream sounds like a great one too. :)

    Interesting… I would never have thought! (Although, I barely have a functioning blender let a lone a glorious apparatus such as the Vita-mix ;)). I’m always looking for ways to feed my old love of ice cream in a non-dairy way, so this is excellent!

    I agree! This sounds soooo fabulous. I need to make more forzen treats at home. I just do not do it!

    So I don’t have a Vitamix, but this sounds like such a cool idea. I might have to see if my regular blender, my stick blender, or my food processor can do the job!

    When I saw the title for this, I HAD to come and check it out! I love papaya, but I am staying away from rice these days…but the flavors in here have my brain going! Have a great weekend!

    LOVE papaya and banana but not a big fan of coconut. Is substituting skim milk an option for this recipe (and still have it come out creamy and sweet?)

    Amy Reply:

    @Larissa, I don’t think it would be as creamy because the coconut milk is much creamier than skim milk. Plus, it’s a little higher in fat which also adds creaminess. I still think it would work, though. You might try compensating for the smaller amount of fat by adding a little more banana.

    Yum! That looks great! How does the rice freeze, i.e does it go really hard after a few hours in the ice cream?

    Amy Reply:

    @Michelle (Health Food Lover), I don’t think the rice in particular is the hard freezing culprit. Anything low in sugar and fat will freeze hard, and this isn’t churned as it’s frozen so it doesn’t incorporate a lot of air.

    Set it out at room temperature for 10 minutes or put it in the refrigerator for 45 minutes before eating. Alternatively, you can break it into smaller pieces and put it a food processor before serving until it’s really smooth.

    Sounds and looks amazing – I too am a huge fan of anything frozen and long for one of those instant churn ice-cream makers that don’t involve freezing the bowl for 24 hours! One day…

    For now I like to snack on whole frozen berries.

    Oh, my goodness–I cannot WAIT to eat bananas again because this will be first on my list of recipes to make! I love the creamy, soft texture you see in the photo–mmmm! Just a quick confirmation: when you cook the rice w/ 2 times the liquid, do you cook until all the liquid is absorbed?

    @Ricki, Yes, cook until all the liquid is absorbed. I’d love to know what you think about it.

    Sounds great, Amy! I love using my VitaMix for fruit-based frozen treats. The cooked rice addition sounds wonderful. :)

    @Ricki, It’s just another way to get those good-for-you grains in your diet.
