Fresh Blueberry Ice Cream

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.

BlueberryI 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.

    Oh. YUM!!! We’re moving up to Beaverton at the end of the month and when I was up there last weekend I was getting so excited seeing all the fresh blueberries everywhere. It’s going to be a big change from here in AZ!

    I’m in the middle of making this right now. I happened to have a huge bowl of fresh berries that needed to be used. I just read the last part about refrigerating until set. Do you mean freeze?

    I made this over the holiday weekend, and it was SLAMMIN’! Everybody freaked out over it. Super yummy. Mine is even more purple than yours. Crazy good. Thanks for the recipe.

    I just wanted to drop by and say thank you for this recipe. I made a slight (and grown ups only!) adaptation of it yesterday as a practice for a very posh grown up meal my husband and I will be cooking in a few weeks for a friend’s birthday. We can’t get half-and-half here in the UK so I used half milk and half cream instead, and I added a tablespoon of Armagnac. It was OUT OF THIS WORLD!!! My husband, who is really fussy about sweet things and usually only likes strawberry ice cream, went back for more. So it MUST have been good. Thanks for an awesome recipe!

    Ah it looks SO GOOD! I wish wish wish I had an ice cream maker… *sigh*… I just wrote a blog post about my attempt at making pseudo-ice cream with my regular everyday blender, and some frozen bananas. I was feeling really good about it until I saw your decadent creation! ;) Mine tastes great and all, but yours is just so pretty!

    I just made this and, although I followed the recipe exactly, it is extremely, cloyingly, overpoweringly sweet. I would cut the sugar in half next time. My husband and I are in agreement that there is just way too much sugar in this recipe.

    Erin says:

    I made this last night and it was delicious! It was so creamy. I read another comment about it being way too sweet and almost added less sugar because my husband doesn’t like it super sweet but I didn’t and it was perfect! I am glad I followed the recipe, if I had added less sugar I think it would have just tasted like creamy blueberries. Thank you for sharing this yummy recipe! It is the only one I will use for blueberry ice cream!

    I made this for a big group of ladies last weekend, and it was a hit! So very delicious. Thank you!

    I am wondering about using this to make ice cream sandwiches. Either big sugar cookies or lemon sugar cookies. They should be gorgeous and yummy (I hope!).

    Julie says:

    Waaaay too much sugar. It tastes like purple colored sugar ice cream. I should have listened to the other reviews here. I usually use 3/4 cup sugar in 3 cup milk/cream mixture. Disappointed because 4 cups of blueberries is a lot of wasted blueberries.

    Lisa says:

    Question. After you churn in the icecream maker, do you pour in glass dish to freeze? Just looking at your Picts. And want to confirm.
    Thanks!

    Jess says:

    I have to agree with the one poster who said it had too much sugar in it. I would probably cut the sugar in half. Otherwise, taste was good just way too sweet. Also I would play with the liquid amounts as it didn’t churn like my other ice creams do.

  24. 24

    Usually I only like my blueberries in pancakes or muffins, but this ice cream looks divine

    Mary Nugent says:

    I’m lactose intolerant, and planning to make this with Lactaid milk. So I’d like to also minimise the heavy cream as this doesn’t come dairy free. Do you think 3 cups milk 1 heavy whipping cream would work?

    Diana Zee says:

    Hi saw your link on the SITS link up. I don’t have an ice cream maker and I love that this doesn’t call for one. I am making this for sure!

    How long do I let it churn for?

      It will depend on your ice cream maker. Some machines shut off automatically when it is done. For me I just watch it until it is thickened up and then turn it off.
