During the hot days of summer, there is nothing I love more than ice cream.  The same is true with the rest of my family as well.  When my son and nephews go to my parents house, one of the first thing Papa will give them is an ice cream cone.  (The love of ice cream starts early in our family!)  It feels like hot summer days and ice cream cones (with both kids and grown ups!) go hand in hand.

So when it gets especially hot in the summer, making a batch of delicious ice cream is usually at the top of my list.  I love using fresh ingredients, and adding yummy toppings as well.  This time around, I wanted to make an ice cream with the fresh blueberries that I got at the farmers market.  It turned out incredible!

Making ice cream is a pretty simple process, as it just involves a few steps and a bit of waiting for the freezer to do its job.  I used a very simple recipe that starts with sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk and whole milk as the base.  I also used a full pint of blueberries and cooked the berries before adding them to the ice cream.  The blueberries along with the coconut in this ice cream taste amazing!  The flavors are perfect for summer!

Don’t these cones look amazing?  This ice cream is perfect when it’s scooped into sugar cones and topped with a bit of coconut and a fresh blueberry.  It’s wonderful paired with a slice of cake and goes well with pie, too!

Once your ice cream is ready to go into the freezer, it will take 3-6 hours to freeze completely.  I actually had mine freeze over night before we ate it, and it was the perfect consistency.

  2. Hi, this looks delicious and I’m going to give it a try, but can you tell me what the ‘c’ stands for in the ingredients please, as in 2c whole milk? Is it cups? I’m in the UK so we measure differently, but I do have a set of measuring cups from when I visited Alaska
    Many thanks, Valerie
