  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blackberries
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon 
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • cup half and half
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract


  • Place the blackberries, sugar, sea salt, cinnamon, and lime juice into a large saucepan, stir to combine, and bring the blackberry mixture to a boil. Decrease the heat to low and simmer the berries uncovered until they begin to soften and burst, and the sugar dissolves.
  • Let the blackberry sauce cool slightly before pouring it into a blender, and blend until the mixture is smooth. Pour blackberry sauce into a fine-mesh sieve placed over a bowl, press the mixture into the sieve, then throw away the pulp. 
  • Add the heavy cream, half and half, and vanilla extract and stir to combine. Cover the blackberry ice cream base with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  • Churn your blackberry ice cream according to the producer's instructions, then place the churned ice cream into a watertight freezer-safe container and freeze for 3-6 hours until the ice cream sets up. 


  • While you can skip pouring the pureed blackberry sauce in a fine-mesh sieve, if you want a truly creamy ice cream, strain the sauce.
