Oh-So-Scrumptious Blueberry Buttermilk Ice Cream

First of all, I want to be more clear on something related to my last post. I am not the brilliant mind that came up with the orange rind cupcake cup. The credit for this ingenious idea really goes to the talented cupcake master at Cupcake Project. I did use my own cupcake recipe though. I just wanted to make sure all of you wonderful peeps understand this. I don't like to take credit for ideas that are not mine! Plus, I never want my pants to catch fire!! ;0)

Alright, without further adieu, here is my Oh-So-Scrumptious Blueberry Buttermilk Ice Cream!



Let me tell ya making your own ice cream is a bit of a chore but so worth all of the trouble!

You will need:
2 cups of fresh blueberries
3/4 cups sugar, divided
juice from 1 lemon
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup buttermilk (I used reduced fat)
6 egg yolks
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp lemon rind
Blueberries for garnish (optional)

Heat the blueberries, 1/4 cup of sugar, lemon rind, and 1tbsp of water on medium low heat until blueberries begin to soften and pop. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Place in the fridge to cool.

Beat the egg yolks and set aside.

Next, combine cream, buttermilk, remaining sugar, vanilla and lemon juice. Cook over medium low heat, stirring often to avoid scorching. Cook just until it starts to simmer. Pour 1/2 of this mixture in with the egg yolks, whisking constantly. Pour this mixture back into your remaining cream mixture. Pour all this into a large bowl and chill in fridge.




Remove the cream mixture and blueberries from the fridge and fold the berries into the cream mixture.






Place into an ice cream maker and let it do it's thing for about 20 minutes or until soft set.



Place into a freezable container, cover and place in freezer to harden.



This was really amazing with the buttermilk! Watch out! It's addictive stuff!

Oh that sounds like such a delightful delicious summer treat.

Mmm... a blueberry ice cream - it looks so luscious and wonderful! I would totally be addicted!

Joanne said...

It took me a while to get that pants on fire comment...I felt really silly. This ice cream looks great - what an original way to use the massive amounts of blueberries that are in season!

Cathy said...

Yum, looks wonderful, Kim. I prefer an ice cream with a cooked base and this looks so creamy and delicious. Maybe this is our last day of temps over 90. Perfect ice cream weather.

Kathy B! said...

I really wish I had an ice cream maker. This looks amazing. And I still have jsut enough bleberries left to pull it off...

Mary said...

This looks amazingly good. I love the tang buttermilk adds to ice cream.

Little Miss Baker said...

this looks so yummy Kim! and does sound a little time consuming but so worth the effort :)

Charlotte said...

I have never made ice cream with buttermilk in it, but it sure sounds good.

Selba said...

If I have an ice cream maker, definitely I will try to make this ice cream :)

Stephanie said...

This sounds fabulous!! However, I must admit to being afraid to make a base with eggs. I tried a vanilla ice cream recipe with eggs...and all I could taste were the eggs. I haven't used an egg base since. I know it could have just been the recipe...

This one could certainly change my mind about trying an egg based recipe again! :-)

Pam said...

Using buttermilk sounds like a great idea - I have a ton of blueberries to use up. Thanks for the tasty recipe.

Faith said...

Oooh, this sounds incredible with the buttermilk!

Jenn said...

I wish I had an ice cream maker. I wish, I wish, I wish.

Patty said...

I'd love to make my own ice cream. I hear what you said all too often that it tastes better when you make it at home. Too bad I don't have an ice cream maker. Any suggestions for a girl like me that doesn't have one?

Michelle @ Find Your Balance said...

Good for you making your own ice cream! Homemade is the best!

Pam said...

I've made a strawberry buttermilk ice cream that was wonderful. The buttermilk makes it almost taste like cheesecake doesn't it?

Erica said...

What a delicious summer treat!

Oh hubby is on a mission to eat as many blueberries as he can this summer, as Jersey has lots...this has a beautiful color, and he would like this on my to make list!

I was scouting around over here trying to think of something outrageous I could do to fulfill my rash statement :) Maybe replicate a recipe with only what I have on hand...? Thinking...
