I have to begin this post with a direct quote from my husband upon tasting today’s treat.
“This is the BEST ice cream you have ever made!”
This comment was not made once but made multiple times while he enjoyed his bowl full of Fresh Blueberry Ice Cream.
This is REALLY the BEST ice cream you have ever made!”
I think he liked and I liked it too. Actually I think you can say we LOVED it! We had the sister missionaries from our church over for dinner this week and when I asked them what they would like to have for dinner one of them said that she really likes fruit. So, do you think this qualifies as a fruit serving?? I sure hope so. But no worries, I also fixed this Perfect Summer Salad for them too!
Earlier in the day I had gone to a local blueberry farm and picked a bucket full of fresh blueberries to use but I am sure you could also use frozen but you’ll get a fresher flavor with fresh berries of course! Not only is this delicious but it is so darn pretty! Totally love the color.
In fact it was so darn pretty it was hard to stop taking pictures of it.
I made the ice cream in my 2 qt. Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker. Give this one a try and let me know what you think! See if you agree with my husband.
