Sunday Treat: Blueberry Honey Homemade Ice Cream

by gidget on July 11, 2010

in family life,ice cream

mmm... blueberry ice cream

My first batch didn’t come out so good. It was flaky and didn’t have a very creamy texture, even though it tasted creamy, which was weird.

But this version shouldn’t disappoint. I went for the classic custard-style ice cream, because I’ve had better results with it in the past and it paid off. Since then, I recently found another method that I might like even better, so maybe I’ll eventually have a second version of this recipe.

But for now, consider this a winner. I started with one from The Kitchn and modified it to come up with this recipe. I love that it has no white sugar in it, and the honey gives it a real richness, too.

Papa and the kiddos

We enjoyed this on Father’s Day and my dad, aka Papa, who himself claims to not normally love fruity ice creams, couldn’t stop raving about how it was really good. :)

So, without further adieu, here it is…

local berries and honey

I hope you enjoy the rich taste of honey, buttermilk and berries and the beautiful lavender color!
