Mixed Berry Frozen Delight

I have some blueberries and black raspberries in the freezer from last year and wanted to use them and the local market had some nice strawberries, so it was time to break out the freezer.  I did use the frozen berries without thawing.  The black raspberries do not need to be chopped as they will break apart in the freezer.  If you have leftovers, they can be kept in the freezer, but please note it will be hard to scoop.  The nutrition information below is for 2% buttermilk and 8 servings.

  1/2 Cup Strawberries                                                               2 Tsp Lime Juice
  1/2 Cup Blueberries                                                                 1 Tsp vanilla extract
  1/2 Cup sugar                                                                          Pinch of salt
  2 1/2 Cup Buttermilk                                                               1 Cup Black Raspberries
  1/2 Cup Low Fat Half And Half                                             

Combine strawberries, blueberries and sugar in a small bowl and let sit, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has begun to dissolve. Transfer the berry mixture to a blender and process until smooth.  Add buttermilk, half and half, lime juice, vanilla and salt to the blender and mix until well combined.  Place blender pitcher in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours.   When ready to freeze, pour into the canister of an ice cream maker. Freeze according to manufacturers directions. During the last 15 minutes of freezing, add the black berries.
