Blueberry Pie Ice Cream

Blueberry pie ice cream is rich and creamy, using fresh, raw cream.  Packed with  blueberries and pieces of gluten free pie crust, it makes a real treat.blueberry pie ice creamOne of my absolute favorite things about summer in Michigan is the abundance of fresh blueberries.  It has been my favorite fruit since I was little.

Blueberry pie has always been my favorite kind of pie as well.  I used to request it for my birthday instead of cake.

While blueberry pie is quite perfect on its own, it can get better.  There is only one way I can think of to improve blueberry pie…by making it into blueberry pie ice cream!

The other day my daughter requested blueberry pie ice cream.  I happily obliged.

Together we came up with a rich, creamy ice cream that is packed with blueberry flavor and has bits of real pie crust mixed in.  An added bonus is the brilliant purple color of the ice cream.  Nothing artificial here.  Just pure blueberry goodness.blueberry pie ice cream 3

Fresh blueberries will be here any time now.  Be sure you save some for making ice cream.

As different fruits are in season you can swap them for the blueberries…strawberry, cherry, raspberry or even peach!  You can also make this dairy free using coconut milk.

Blueberry season just got a little sweeter with blueberry pie ice cream.blueberry pie ice cream 2
