To whomever invented ice cream I owe a big thank you. It has been my favorite dessert since day one. It may come as a shock that I have never attempted to make ice cream from scratch before. But there is a first time for everything. During our annual family vacation to Maine I set my mind on blueberry ice cream.
If you have been following my blog at all, you know Maine blueberries are my favorite and have the most flavor by far. The recipe I used called for a blueberry sauce, which I decided to double and use the extra for my yogurt in the morning (best decision ever). The recipe was also kicked up a notch by adding cream cheese—thus making is all the more creamer and reminiscent of cheesecake. Yum.
As it turns out, making homemade ice cream isn’t all that difficult if you have an ice cream maker on hand (which, thank God, I did). Pretty basic stuff pouring in sugar, milk and cream, and forgetting all about that time you were working for a bikini body. And that added splash of bourbon? Talk about some intense flavor. Totally optional, but highly recommended.
