Blueberry Ice Cream

Have you ever met anyone who doesn’t like ice cream?  I remember we’d always stop to buy ice cream on the way back from the beach as a kid – it was the highlight of our outing.  Admittedly we’re talking typical Southern England beach – pebbled, usually cold with a gale force wind. The kind of place you go to blow away the cobwebs rather than to top up your tan. But ice cream even in the coldest, windiest weather is always good if you’re a child.

And this blueberry ice cream would have gone down well.  It’s so easy to make that it hardly warrants a recipe but I’m discovering that the simplest recipes with the least ingredients are often the best and so on that basis it deserves a place. Super delicious and nutritious, it’s a brilliant dessert or even makes it to our breakfast table sometimes.  Happy morning ice cream days!
