Blueberries ‘n’ Cream Ice Cream

As promised, here is the first of several blueberry recipes. This was enjoyed alongside a lovely cake for my birthday. I would have used all buttermilk in the recipe below, but sadly, I was a little short.

Blueberries ‘n’ Cream Ice Cream inspired by Strawberry Buttermilk Ice Cream via A Little Yumminess, who found it at No Recipes

2 cups buttermilk
1 cup milk
1 cup cream
1 1/2 cups blueberry puree
1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup sugar
2 tsp pure vanilla extract

1) In a blender, puree blueberries until very smooth.

2) Whisk all ingredients together, and chill for several hours.

3) Freeze in ice cream maker, following manufacturer instructions.

Note: You can eat this immediately, but homemade ice cream is typically pretty soft right out of the machine. However, I think homemade ice cream is best enjoyed the day it is made, perhaps just after a few hours in the freezer to set a bit. I find that if left overnight, it gets a little hard (but still tasty.) My ideal schedule is to mix the ice cream the night before I want to eat it, chill in the fridge overnight, freeze in the ice cream maker mid-morning, and enjoy in the afternoon.

    I like the changes you made. We just ate leftover mango version for lunch and it keeps pretty well. Eating right way though seems to be the way to go…

    You posted the mango recipe several days ago – I’m impressed it lasted this long! I’ve since made double batch of your strawberry ice cream, and the aforementioned blueberry ice cream, and they are loonnnggg gone :)

    I’m about to go mix up the vanilla condensed milk ice cream I found on A Little Yumminess (

    There you can find a link to the NY times article that inspired them, which in turn has some interesting perspective on condensed milk, and a few more simple, but delicious sounding recipes!

    Just made roasted banana buttermilk ice-cream. Bad idea! I think tart fruits are the way to go… :)

    Looks delish! Would you mind sharing what kind of ice cream maker you have? I am looking into getting one and just can’t seem to decide on one.

    I just have the standard Cuisinart freezer bowl type ice cream maker. To be honest, I don’t totally love it. I need to do a formal experiment, but I think I like the texture better from the more old fashioned bucket ice cream makers that use rock salt and ice. The trade off is, those are a bit more of a production to use. But they also make more at one time. Good luck! let me know what you get and how you like it!
