Blackberry Lime Ice Cream
Perfectly creamy blackberry ice cream with a hint of lime to brighten it up. Nothing compares to this homemade blackberry ice cream!
- 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
- 1½ 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.
