Homemade red, white and blue ice cream sundaes, with strawberries, blueberries, chocolate syrup and whipped cream make patriotic celebrations special!Red, White and Blue Ice Cream Sundaes / The Grateful Girl Cooks!
This past weekend another celebration of Independence Day occurred in the United States. We are so very grateful to live in this country, and thankful for all who have stood boldly and sacrificed their lives to provide us with the freedoms we are blessed to have here in the U.S.A. We celebrated with Red, White and Blue Ice Cream Sundaes!

Making Red, White and Blue Ice Cream Sundaes Is A Cinch!

Homemade vanilla ice cream is topped with whipped cream, chocolate syrup, blueberries, blue sprinkles, and fresh sliced strawberries. You really don’t need a recipe for that, but I am including my basic homemade vanilla ice cream recipe below, for anyone who enjoys making homemade ice cream, and might want it.

Making homemade vanilla ice cream is what I enjoy doing! The ice cream part is easy. I mix up heavy whipping cream, milk, sugar and vanilla, then pour it into my ice cream maker.

Pouring ice cream mixture into machine for freezing.
After about 20 minutes, the vanilla ice cream has frozen to soft serve consistency. We LOVE making ice cream in our little Cuisinart ice cream machine, which I received as a gift!

Homemade vanilla ice cream is ready to make into ice cream sundaes!
Remove the ice cream from the machine, and put it into a sealed container in the freezer to firm up some more (an hour or two).

When ready to serve, scoop vanilla ice cream into serving dishes. Spray some whipped cream on top (along with some colored decorating sugar, if desired).

Drizzle ice cream with chocolate syrup, then surround ice cream with blueberries and sliced strawberries, and serve! Red, White, and Blue Ice Cream Sundaes, for the win!
