This 3-ingredient blackberry ice cream comes with perfectly ripe fresh blackberry chunks.
It’s so easy to make, that you will thank me after reading this. And the best part: you don’t need an ice cream maker and it’s done in 15 minutes plus overnight in the freezer. That’s all! Bingo!
Summer is in the air. It is sunny most of the time, you can feel the Miami heat 24/7 and sunsets are already past 8 pm… Blackberries and raspberries are in season and being sold at derisory prices! So why don’t we treat ourselves with a delicious homemade ice cream with seasonal ingredients?
This ice cream is heavenly delicious. It’s made with frozen evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, frozen blackberry concentrated juice and fresh blackberries. Creamy? Yes, it is, but there are bites in which you get chunks of frozen berries. So it’s like having an ice cream and a sorbet all at the same time.
I must warn you though: this fruity ice cream is no gelato, not a super creamy decadent ice cream either. But it’s the perfect treat to enjoy as a dessert or during a hot summer afternoon when you don’t feel like cooking but are craving for something delicious.
