Blueberries and Cream Ice Cream


Creamy blueberry ice cream is a summer treat that you simply need to taste to believe. It’s truly unforgettable.

I love berries with cream together in almost any form, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a blueberry ice cream in the store. (I have no doubt that someone makes one though!)

I had originally planned to make a simple batch of vanilla ice cream to serve with chocolate and caramel sauces for dessert. However, when I opened the refrigerator to grab the milk and cream, I spied the blueberries on the shelf.

One thought led to another, and the next thing I knew I had everything in the blender together.

Blueberries and Cream Ice Cream

My boys went nuts over this ice cream. It was delicious soft-serve right out of the ice cream maker. I had a hard time waiting while it firmed up more in the freezer.

I felt obligated to “test” the recipe once more before sharing it with you, and let me tell you, it was just as big a hit the second time around.

Wondering why the photos for this recipe look different? Fresh berries will result in the lighter-colored ice cream pictured above. Frozen berries will result in the more deeply colored ice cream pictured below.

Both versions of this ice cream are delicious, however, the frozen berries will produce a stronger blueberry flavor. And just in case you need one more reason to try this ice cream, I topped this blueberry oatmeal with the last of this ice cream and it was spectacular.

These are my favorite inexpensive containers for storing ice cream. They’re perfect for gifting (who doesn’t love homemade ice cream?) storage, re-using, etc. I write the flavors on the lids with a sharpie and it washes off with dish soap.

I have more ice cream scoops than I can keep track of at this point and I definitely play favorites. This ice cream scoop does the best job ever of cutting through firm ice cream and still delivers a pretty scoop. It gets bonus points for being one of the least expensive scoops I own as well.

Want to try a few more of our favorite ice creams? This Blueberry Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream is very lightly adapted from Rusconi’s recipe and it’s very much loved.

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Ice Cream is an intense strawberry burst of flavor with melting chocolate pieces and a creamy vanilla base. I was surprised by just how much this ice cream reminds me of chocolate-covered strawberries.

Fluffy Strawberry Banana Ice Cream is a creamy ice cream filled with strawberries and bananas. It is the perfect way to cool off this summer.

Mixed Berry Ice Cream is swirled with the Berry Sauce that we’ve loved for years. It was a spur-of-the-moment idea several years ago when I spied a jar of berry sauce in the fridge – and let me tell you, it was a fantastic idea that I’ve repeated ever so many times since then.
