You might remember back when I shared the Strawberries Cookies & Cream Ice Cream recipe that one of my goals this summer is to make more homemade ice cream using our Cuisinart ice cream maker. While I haven’t made as much ice as I initially wanted to I have made ice cream three times this summer. Which is more than usual and summer isn’t even over yet. So I guess I’ll count that as a win.
The latest flavor of homemade ice cream that I made was Blueberry Cobbler Ice Cream. This flavor combination was dreamed up by my husband. He wanted an ice cream with fresh blueberries and graham crackers, so we created Blueberry Cobbler Ice Cream. 🙂
I love blueberries and I don’t think you can go wrong with making a dessert that features blueberries. The same goes for graham crackers, they taste great alone, but they can also be used to enhance a sweet treat. So while I had never had any type of blueberry ice cream before I was hopeful that our homemade ice cream with blueberries and graham crackers would taste good. Thankfully, we were not disappointed. Our Blueberry Cobbler Ice Cream was delicious!!!
But you don’t have to take my word. Try making it for yourself and let me know how you like it. 🙂
Blueberry Cobbler Ice Cream
- 1 cup Fresh Blueberries
- 3/4 cup Whole Milk
- 2/3 cup Granulated Sugar
- Pinch of Salt
- 1 1/2 cups Heavy Cream
- 1 1/2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
- 4 Graham Cracker Squares (crushed)
Place ice cream freezer bowl in the freezer at least 24 hours before you start making ice cream.
Put blueberries into the bowl of a food processor fitted with the chopping blade. Pulse blueberries rough/finely chopped (depending on if you like bigger chunks or smaller pieces of blueberries in your ice cream).
In a medium bowl, use a hand mixer on low speed or whisk to combine milk, sugar, and salt until sugar is dissolved. Stir in heavy cream and vanilla. Stir in chopped blueberries with all juices. Cover and refrigerate 1 to 2 hours. Also, place crushed graham crackers in a plastic bag and chill in the refrigerator.
Place ice cream freezer bowl onto the ice cream maker base. Then attach paddle to the lid and insert it into the ice cream freezer bowl. Turn on ice cream maker and then pour the mixture into the ice cream freezer bowl. Allow churning for 15 minutes.
After ice cream has churned for 15 minutes. Add chilled graham crackers to the ice cream freezer bowl. Continue to churn for 5 minutes.
Turn off ice cream maker and you are ready to enjoy your ice cream. Or you can place ice cream in a freezer safe container and freeze for 1 to 2 hours to allow ice cream to further harden.
