Remember when I said I had a birthday?? Well… I got an awesome gift that benefits everyone! Can you guess what it might be???
I’ll give you a hint!
OH YES! An ice cream machine! Now there’s ice cream for everyone!!! Do you ever get sick of the plain old ice cream that you get from the grocery store? I know that Ben & Jerry’s makes some crazy flavors, but sometimes you just want to eat a vision of ice cream that you have in your head and not to settle with the options that they have in the grocery store! Are you getting me?!
I’ve never been a crazy ice cream eating fan for this exact reason! I want very specific things from my ice cream that I can only from making it myself. There, I said it.
So for a first ice cream making trial, I chose to get my recipe elsewhere. Who better than Joy the Baker?! I have her book, Homemade Decadence…
… where she has lots of ice cream recipes! “We all scream for ice cream!!!”
Which one did I choose??? Well I think it’s obvious, but I chose the Blueberry Goat Cheese Ice Cream. Deeeeelish! I absolutely love the taste of the blueberries along with the smooth, creamy goat cheese. Definitely a show-stopping recipe… and just look at the color!
- 150 g (1 cup) bleberries
- 50 ml (1/2 cup) water
- 100 g (1/2 cup) brown sugar
- 470 g (2 cups) cream
- 230 g (1 cup) milk
- 1 teaspoon vodka (optional)
- 115 g (4 ounces) goat cheese
- Bring the blueberries, water, sugar, and salt to a simmer until the blueberries burst.
- Transfer to a blender and blend until smooth.
- Add the cream, milk, and vodka. Blend until smooth.
- Finally, pulse in the goat cheese until just incorporated.
- Fill into a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to chill, about an hour.
- Churn the ice cream in the ice cream maker according to the manufacture's instructions.
- When finished churning, place in a freezer safe container and freeze for at least 2 hours.
