Tuesdays with Dorie: Blueberry Sour Cream Ice Cream


OH. MY. GOODNESS. This is one of the best ice creams I have ever tasted. Seriously. I really wasn't expecting to like this as much as I did.

Blueberry sour cream ice cream, where have you been all my life?

I luckily still had blueberries in the freezer from my blueberry picking last month, so they came in very handy for this. To avoid an overly-sour cream taste, I only used 1/2 cup instead of the recommended 3/4 cup. I contemplated putting a few add-ins into this, but I'm glad I didn't. It was just perfect the way it was. It was so rich and creamy, I had to eat it really slowly to savor every bite. My only complaint is that it didn't make anywhere near a big enough batch to satisfy me.

Thank you to Dolores of Chronicles in Culinary Curiosity for selecting the group's recipe for this week. You will definitely want to visit her blog for the recipe. Up next week are some really great sounding cookies - can't wait!

I agree: sometimes simple is best! Great idea to cut the sour cream (not my top flavor).

I personally liked the sour cream but my hubs didn't so maybe next time I'll have to cut it to 1/2 cup like you did! Great job!

I'm with you on this one--I wasn't expecting much out of this recipe. I'm not the world's premiere blueberry fan, and sour cream turned my stomach, but put it all together and bibbidi-boppity-boo it was amazing!

Great job.

LyB said...

Beautiful! It really was delicious, and the recipe doubles easily, right? :)

Pamela said...

Your pictures look great, and so does your ice cream. I almost doubled the recipe, too. But I wanted to be sure I liked it. Now I'm glad I didn't because I would've eaten WAY too much.

Um! It was sooooo delicious!

Jacque said...

Oooh, good idea with cutting back the sour cream. I think just a little less than called for would be perfect.

Yours looks perfect!

Jules Someone said...

I'm glad you liked it. It wasn't a favorite at our house. I'm going to have to cut back on the sour cream as well.

Sharon said...

I loved it also. Yours looks very creamy.
