In a world where ice cream flavors range from the classic to the “who-thought-that-was-a-good-idea?”, I bring you a tale of simplicity, elegance, and blueberries.

I’m so excited to share this homemade blueberry ice cream today! It’s not just any ice cream, but a no-churn wonder that’s as easy as it is delicious.

Grab a spoon, or maybe a shovel, because you’re going to dig this summer dessert!

Blueberries are nature’s candy – tiny, tart, and tantalizing. They’re especially delicious when mixed into a creamy base. The result is fruity and sweet – but not too sweet.

“But wait,” I hear you say, “isn’t making ice cream as complex as rocket science?” Fear not, my friends! This recipe is as straightforward as they come.

You don’t need any fancy equipment, just a freezer, some basic ingredients, and a love for all things creamy and blueberry-ish.

It’s so easy, you could probably make it while dancing to your favorite tune or, if you’re like me, while singing an ode to blueberries.

When your guests say, “Wow, this is amazing! Where did you buy it?” You can casually reply, “Oh, the ice cream? Please. It’s my own personal recipe.”

Watch their jaws drop, bask in the glory of your culinary prowess, and then guard your ice cream because, trust me, they will want more.

Making No Churn Ice Cream

You’re going to make this treat in a few simple steps. Scroll to the bottom for the recipe, or get a few frequently asked questions before that. Enjoy!

What does no churn ice cream mean?

No churn means that you’re not going to use an ice cream maker. An ice cream maker keeps the ingredients turning over so that while your dessert is chilling, no ice crystals form (and it remains soft).

With no churn you’ll still be stirring the ingredients with a mixer, but there is no churning process required. I love it because – easy.

Is no churn ice cream real ice cream?

Yes, because no churn uses heavy cream (along with other ingredients). Ice cream is basically sugar and frozen cream, so no churn qualifies, at least in my book.

*Make sure to use good quality ingredients this recipe. I recommend high quality, fresh dairy products and pure (not imitation) extracts for the best results.

Tips and Thoughts for This Recipe

If you plan to make a lot of ice cream, invest in some reusable containers. They make freezing easy.

Your ice cream will have the best flavor if enjoyed as soon as it’s ready, but it can last for several weeks or months if you store it properly.

Pressing plastic wrap against the surface helps prevent freezer burn (in addition to putting a lid on the top).
