Homemade Blackberry Ice Cream Recipe

One of the easiest fruits to grow in my home garden is blackberry.  Infact, we have blackberries that nature planted for us along the woodline. In today’s post I combine my passion for ice cream with what God gives us in nature in a Blackberry Ice Cream Recipe share.

It’s really as easy as it looks to make and who doesn’t love fresh ingredients from the home garden or local market? Be sure to take advantage of the print option on the recipe share below.

In the Kitchen Garden

Some of my favorite berries to grow in addition to the blackberry are strawberries and red raspberry.  The biggest challenge is keeping the birds out of the harvest. I have found over the years using a net over the raspberries works amazing.  Once you take a bite of this fruit-filled treat you will be hooked.  Did I mention how this has almost zero preservatives?  Be sure to print this recipe card to add to your cookbook collection.

A few of my favorite berries to use in this dish is the fresh raspberries I pick in the cut flower garden.  Those raspberry bushes are from our first home in Perrysburg. I am not sure what variety but it for sure an heirloom.

  1. Nice! Instead of milk, I usually use liquid whipped cream, and after all mixed, put into the freezer. Just changing the fruit ingredient, you can create any taste of ice cream, according of te season.

    1. Liquid Whipped Cream… you mean ‘whipping cream’? I’m going to give that a try with some strawberries I have in the freezer from earlier this spring. Thanks for stopping by Mona.
