Blueberry Ice Cream
It seems a lot of people have enjoyed seeing my peanut butter ice cream recipe that I posted a couple of days ago. It’s a great recipe, plus, it only takes 2 minutes to make it in Vitamix. I’ve been informed that it also works well in Blentec. My family is a huge fan of ice cream. We try not too eat too much of it but one of our favorite family activities on weekends is to get some yummy ice cream and eat it while we watch a movie. My husband and my kids love ice cream, probably more than I do, especially the creamy kind. I’m more adventurous when it comes to ice cream, well, food in general. I like to eat fruity ice cream, even if they are not usually too creamy. Usually when I make fruity and low fat kind of ice cream, I get to eat it all by myself.
I really like blueberries… I don’t usually eat them by themselves though because I think they kind of taste like feet… (Sorry!) But I love eating them with other things or in things. I love adding blueberries to my Greek yogurt or cereal. I love using blueberries in desserts, like in blueberry muffins, blueberry crumble bars, etc. Blueberries in desserts are very sweet and somehow they lose the “feet smell” that I dislike.
This is another blender ice cream recipe. It takes 2 minutes to make it. If you own a Vitamix and would like to try and make this recipe, make sure you don’t over run the machine. If you do it too long, it will start to melt. Follow the instructions carefully so you can enjoy this ice cream in perfect texture. If you would like to try this recipe but you don’t have a blender, I’d suggest that you use your normal blender and blend all ingredients together until liquidy and transfer it to an ice cream machine and run it for about 35 minutes, or until the ice cream is smooth and creamy.
- 1 cup skim milk (or 1% or 2%)
- 2 cups frozen blueberries
- ¾ cup sugar
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- Place all ingredients into blender (I used Vitamix) in the order listed and secure lid.
- Select Variable 1 (slow).
- Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High. Use tamper to press ingredients into the blades while processing.
- In about 30-60 seconds, the sound of the motor will change and four mounds should form in the mixture. Do not overmix or the ice cream will start to melt.
- If you don’t own a vitamix and would like to try this recipe, blend all ingredients in your normal mixer until liquidy and transfer the mixture to ice cream maker. Turn on the machine and run the machine for about 35 minutes or until it forms an ice cream texture.
