Blueberry Ice Cream

     LV gave me a lovely ice cream machine for Christmas. I have enjoyed trying different recipes for ice cream and gelatos, but this week I decided I want to try my hand at creating my own recipe. I'm so glad I did. It just happened to become our favorite ice cream yet. 

    I jotted everything down as I did it, so I won't forget if I ever want to make it again. I 'm glad I did, because I already have requests to make it again. Since it was such a hit I decided to share it with you as well.

Blueberry Ice Cream

1¼ c wild blueberries (frozen is fine)
1 Tbsp lemon juice
½ c. sugar
Pinch of salt

Combine and bring to a boil. Stirring constantly. Boil for about a minute or so. Remove from heat and cool. Pour into a blender and blend.

In a medium size bowl beat:

1 egg

½ c sugar
½ Tbsp cornstarch

Mix well then add:

¾ c. whole milk
½ heavy cream
blended blueberries 

Heat in top of double boiler until thickened.

Cool and freeze according to your ice cream freezer instructions. Mine took about 30 minutes. Scoop into a container and tuck it in the freezer until ready to eat. 


  1. OOh, I can almost taste it! Delicious.

  2. That sounds and looks delcious. Thank you.

  3. That sounds delicious! I love blueberries. My husband doesn't, but I would make it for me.

    1. I'm sure that breaks your heart! Go ahead, and make some for the rest of us. It really does sound yummy.

  4. Thanks so much for the recipe! I tried it yesterday for our family's Memorial Day picnic - a 3x recipe. I made a few changes for our family's needs, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly, and it was such a lovely color and texture. Thanks for sharing!!
