Blackberry Chip Ice Cream

Blackberry Chip Ice Cream

Yesterday I posted a vegan ice cream recipe. I made it for Alex and seeing the look on his face as he ate it made me really happy. The good thing about ice cream, unlike cake, is it has a longer shelf life. I didn’t want to hog his special ice cream so I made a batch just for myself.

I saw this recipe and immediately went to buy some cherries but while I was at the store I saw British blackberries and picked them up instead. They cost less than cherries and they don’t need pitting.

I don’t think I’ll ever need to buy store bought ice cream again! Make sure the berries are in small pieces. If the chunks are too big they’ll be hard as rocks.
