When I was a little girl, there was a company that made a red, white and blue ice cream for patriotic holidays. I don’t remember who made the delicious strawberry, vanilla and blueberry ice cream, but I do know, I loved it.
I looked forward to that treat every year. But, somewhere along the way, it became impossible to find. I’ve searched every grocery store in a fifty mile radius from my house and it simply cannot be found. In fact, blueberry ice cream seems to be a nonexistent option. But, lately, I’ve become nostalgic for that old ice cream and so, I had to improvise and make my own.
Semi-Homemade Blueberry Ice Cream is super easy to make…the kids can help…and it requires just 4 ingredients.
The problem is, it’s so good and so easy to make, you’ll probably have to eat a lot of it!
Semi-Homemade Blueberry Ice Cream
- 1 cup water
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
- 4 cups vanilla ice cream
Pour the water, sugar and blueberries into a small pot and heat on medium temperature, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves.
Remove blueberry sauce from the heat and allow it to cool to room temperature.
Scoop vanilla ice cream into a blender. Pour blueberry sauce over the ice cream and blend on high speed until smooth and creamy.
Pour the ice cream into a freezer-safe container and freeze for 4 to 6 hours (or overnight) before serving.
Yield: Approximately 1.5 quarts
Have a Spectacular Day!
