Screaming for ice cream!!!!
This fruity ice cream, with all the goodness of fruit. I figured this recipe two years ago when I went for a berry picking festival. I got a lot of blueberries, I froze most of them. From that time I was hunting for some classic blueberry recipes and landed on this easy creamy ice cream. Ice cream can be made without an ice cream machine. Of course it takes some time and work, but its all worth when you have a bowl of freshly churned ice cream made by yourself. YUM!

Heavy wipping cream - 2 cups
Fresh or frozen Blueberries - 1 cup
Sugar - ½ cup
Water - 1 tablespoon
Vanilla - 1 teaspoon
In a sauce pan combine sugar, water and blueberries and let heat. The sugar will melt and the blueberries will start to burst. Let it form a syrup.
Switch off the flame and strain it through a fine sieve. Let the syrup cool completely.
Set a large bowl, and the beaters of a hand mixer into the fridge for 2 hrs. Now pour the cream into the chilled bowl and start whipping it. Add the vanilla extract and continue to wipe it.
When the cream is formed fold in the blueberry syrup. Check for sugar add more if needed. Cover the bowl with a plastic warp and keep it in the freezer for 1 hour i.e. the mixture should be half frozen.
Now remove the bowl from freezer and whip it again till it is fluffy.
Again cover the bowl with plastic wrap and return it to the freezer and do the same whipping process for 2 more times in 1 hour of intervals.
At the third time, after whipping transfer the ice cream to an air tight container and store it in the freezer. Now let it freeze for more them 3 hours and after that it can be served as desired.
The same process can be done in a ice cream machine also, just follow the manufactures’ instructions. Or this whipping process can be done in a blender or mixee if hand held betters are not available.
Note: The flavor of blueberry and sweetness can be adjusted according to ones taste buds. Frozen blueberrys can also be used if fresh one are not available.
