Blueberry Ice Cream

More pink than blue, but bursting with wild berry flavor, this all-natural low carb ice cream recipe transitions from casual to formal with a simple flick of your wrist.

Mash your blueberries for more concentrated color, or scatter in whole as you finish the batch.

A surprise splash of lemon adds a (subtle) citrus bite to an otherwise sweet sensation.

Ingredients

1 c blueberries, mashed

1 tsp lemon juice

(Add lemon zest for more citrus flavor.)

10 drops liquid stevia (or equiv), to taste

1 1/2 c heavy whipping cream

1 tsp vanilla extract

 

Directions

In a 3-quart saucepan combine blueberries, stevia and lemon juice.

Mash berries slightly and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture comes to a boil. Simmer 5 minutes.

Remove from heat and puree in a blender. Cool the mixture. Add cream and vanilla.

Place in an ice cream maker and churn according to instructions. Freeze churned ice cream for an hour before serving. This makes ice cream with a perfect consistency.

Place mixture into a container in the freezer, churning by hand with a fork / spoon / whisk every 30 minutes. This makes ice cream with a chunky‐firm, icy consistency.

Marbled Blueberries and Cream

Need something less casual, with a little more spark?

Make the low carb blueberry ice cream recipe according to directions, but without adding the blueberry puree. You’ll add the blueberries during the last minute or two.

 

Using an Ice Cream Maker

Wait until your ice cream is almost finished churning, then pour the blueberry puree into the machine for the last minute or two – or just until incorporated.

Allow ice cream to set (freeze for one hour) before scooping to preserve the ribbon effect.

 

Churning By Hand

Place your blueberry ice cream (without the blueberry puree) in a container in the freezer, and churn by hand with a fork / spoon / whisk every 30 minutes.

Once ice cream becomes firm, drop tablespoonfuls of blueberry puree into the mix, spacing the spoonfuls evenly apart. Use a knife to swirl the puree around, creating a marbled look.

Place ice cream back into the freezer until fully set.

Bolder Blueberry Color

There are a few ways to skip the pink and add stronger color to your blueberry low carb ice cream.

Healthy: Increase the amount of blueberries, and puree until almost liquid, or decrease the amount of cream in the recipe.

Not-As-Healthy: Add a few drops of food coloring, or sprinkle a little sugar-free Jello dry mix into the batch.
