This is a perfect way to use up all of those fresh summertime blueberries. Even if blueberries are not your favorite, you will love this summertime treat.
Prepare your blueberries by adding sugar and juice of one half lemon. Cover and let sit in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Stir every 3o minutes. They will make a sweet blueberry juice.
Make your ice cream base. Whisk the eggs until light a fluffy … about 2 minutes.
Gradually add sugar, whisking the entire time to dissolve.
Stir in milk and cream until mixed.
Drain off the juice from the blueberries and pour into the ice cream base. Smash the blueberries until smooth.
Add the blueberries to the ice cream base and pour into your ice cream maker.
I usually remove the soft frozen ice cream from the maker once done and store in an air tight container in the freezer until ready to serve.
