Blueberry Vanilla Ice Cream

This blueberry vanilla ice cream deliciously pairs with Emma’s lemon buttermilk ice cream recipe.


  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla



  1. In a medium saucepan, stir and simmer together the blueberries, water and sugar until the blueberries soften and the sugar dissolves, about 5-10 minutes. Chill until cold.
  2. When the blueberry mixture is sufficiently chilled, use an immersion blender to puree the blueberries.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together the blueberry mixture, cream, milk and vanilla. Process mixture in ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions. Transfer to container with lid; freeze.
