lemon blueberry ice cream

Watch out Ben & Jerry’s.  You’ve got nothing on me!

Seriously, we make a lot of homemade ice cream around here and this one, hands down, tops them all.

Lemon Blueberry Pie Ice Cream

lemon blueberry ice cream First things first, if you don’t have an ice cream maker, invest in one.  I can’t tell you how many memories our family has made over a batch of homemade ice cream.  Not only is it delicious, but it is an anticipated summer tradition that everyone will cherish.  But buy one locally now, because in two months you won’t be able to find them.  Trust me.  Ice cream machines are seasonal {I found that out the hard way one October when I was dying to make some homemade ice cream}.

 

INGREDIENTS:

Ice Cream

  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 t lemon zest
  • 2 T Lemon juice
  • 1/2 C sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup French Vanilla Coffee Mate Creamer
  • ¾ t vanilla
  • 5 grahm crackers

Blueberry Filling

  • 2 – 2 ½  cups blueberries, cleaned
  • ¼  cup powdered sugar

INSTRUCTIONS:

Ice Cream:  Combine the milk, ¼ C sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, and salt in a medium saucepan. Scald the milk mixture over medium heat, stirring often, for appx. 5 minutes. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk egg yolks and  remaining 1/4 C sugar.   Whisk until light and fluffy.  Add the hot milk mixture to the egg mixture by spoonfuls. Whisk together until smooth.  Return mixture into the saucepan and cook over medium heat, until the curd is thick enough to cover the back of a spoon (approx. 5 minutes). Place the custard in the freezer to cool for appx 5 min.  Combine the whipping cream, vanilla creamer, and vanilla in a separate bowl.  Add to the curd mixture. Cover with plastic wrap and let chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours (overnight is fine too).

Blueberry Filling:  Combine blueberries and powdered sugar in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, stirring occasionally. Mixture should begin to thicken between 7-10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.

Make Ice Cream mixture according to your machines directions.  {Mine churned for appx 30 min}. Add chunks of grahm cracker during the last few minutes of churning.

    I know this sounds like a weird question but is the creamer a liquid or powder?
    • August 6th, 2010 at 11:45 pm
      Shelley says:
      LIQUID!! :) Sorry,...should have specified. And make sure it's the 'Coffee Mate' Brand. :)

    hi.. i had try this twice before, but i'm not sure about the taste... secondly, may i know, when i mix the lemon juice together with milk, it will curdle... is this the correct way? hope to know from u soon.. thanks... :)
    • June 3rd, 2011 at 8:33 am
      Shelley says:
      Oh No! It shouldn't curdle. Make sure to let the mixture cool before adding lemon? HOpefully that will help. good luck! :)

    These recipes sound too good-what about frozen yogurt with blueberries & lemon. Just as tasty, but not all the fat calories. I am allergic to eggs, so frozen yogurt for me with all these various flavors would be heavenly.
