It finally feels like summertime here in the Midwest and no better way to kick off the sun-filled days than with a good dose of berries. We have yet to go on our annual strawberry picking outing, but I’ve been stacking my grocery cart with every berry the store has to offer.
For a refreshing and fun treat, I created a quick homemade triple berry ice cream using fresh strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. The recipe is easy – no cooking! – and perfect on a warm summer day.
Triple Berry Ice Cream
1 1/2 C chopped strawberries
1/2 C blueberries
1/2 C raspberries
3 TBSP sugar
1/8 tsp salt
2 C heavy cream
In a food processor, blend all three berries, the juice of one lemon and sugar. If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a blender or mash the berries by hand.
In a large bowl, mix blended berry mixture, heavy cream and salt. Refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight.
In an ice cream maker (I used the KitchenAid ice cream attachment), add cold mixture according to directions. Churn until thick.
Serve immediately for a soft serve texture or freeze in a container for a harder texture.
This recipe makes about 10 servings.
