Two years ago I made blueberry ice cream as part of an Ice Cream Experiment, where I made many different varieties of ice cream with my Cuisinart ice cream maker over the course of the summer.  We really enjoyed this ice cream, and I loved using some of the blueberries I picked at a local U-Pick Farm and had stored in our freezer.

I experimented with grinding frozen blueberries and sugar in my food processor until liquified. This was done, as opposed to the more “traditional” method of cooking them until the blueberries “pop” and make a thick sauce. My wish was to have little bits of “fresh, uncooked” blueberries throughout the ice cream. It worked!

This was a very easy to prepare ice cream. I also added in a block of cream cheese, to enhance to the flavor and creamy thickness of this delicious ice cream, and I’m very glad I did!

Yeehaw! Here are the blueberries after I got to them. Look at all of them! That’s not bad, for 1½  hours of my time at our local U-Pick Farm.

These are the fresh blueberries I picked at a local farm.

I also ended up using some of the blueberry ice cream in another recipe, which we took to a friend’s home. It was a blueberry ice cream tart, and it was so yummy! I sure hope you will give this yummy blueberry ice cream a try… and really hope you enjoy it!  I think the color of this ice cream is amazing!
