Tips and Tricks

Blending Blueberries

Ensure the blueberries are thoroughly blended to avoid large chunks. You can use a food processor or blender for a smooth texture. If you prefer a bit of texture, mash some of the blueberries by hand.

Mixing Ingredients

When combining the cream and sweetened condensed milk, make sure they are well-mixed before adding the blueberries. This ensures an even distribution of sweetness and creaminess throughout the ice cream.

Ice Cream Maker Instructions

Follow your ice cream maker’s specific instructions closely. Different machines may have varying requirements for freezing time and settings, which can affect the final texture of your ice cream.

Freezing Tips

For the best results, transfer the ice cream to a shallow, airtight container. This allows it to freeze more evenly and helps prevent ice crystals from forming. Cover the surface of the ice cream with plastic wrap before sealing the lid to maintain its creamy texture.

Serving Suggestions

Let the ice cream sit at room temperature for a few minutes before scooping. This makes it easier to scoop and enhances its creamy texture. Enjoy your homemade blueberry ice cream with fresh berries, a drizzle of honey, or even as a topping for a warm slice of pie.
