Delicious Blueberry Ice Cream makes extra special with little chocolate chips.
This week is going to go fast, as July 4th weekend is coming; hubby has an off on Friday, so it will be a three day weekend. Kids get to enjoys more as papa is home and that means more outing. If mama is there only outing they get is trip to doctor, Wal-Mart or Sam’s club. Nowadays as they are home so they need some goodies to munch on more often and it is an ice cream, popsicles etc. They love blueberries, so I made this blueberry ice cream.
Summer is bounty time for fruits; especially are blueberries, Mango, Jackfruit, raspberries and strawberries are abundantly available in the market. I like to make ice cream with each and every one of the fruits. But one thing we need to make sure while making ice cream with fruits is taking care of iciness or acid content, but often pureed fruits work well even if simply stirred into the ice cream base when it’s cooled. Iciness can be prevented by giving time to macerate the berries and later puree them. Similarly acid content of lemon, blueberries can be preventing by adding the puree to milk or cream only after cooling.
Yes both I and kids love blueberries, I love to add them in my bakes and smoothies, however my hubby is not a big fan. My little ones want blueberries only in ice cream. I make ice cream at home so that I can control the ingredients that go into it. I have made this blueberry ice cream a few times, it is delicious; only need some cream, milk, blueberries and sugar. Since I giving it to little ones, most of the times I make eggless ice cream. If you make fruit based ice creams you don’t need any egg.
Also I noted that price of eggs has gone up considerably. Usually when I shop at Wal-Mart, there will be few people near the eggs aisle. Last time when I shopped there I couldn’t find a single person.
This blueberry ice cream recipe is simple, you will love it, give it a try. Here comes the recipe.
