Blueberry Pie Ice Cream

Blueberry Pie Ice Cream is sure hit for summer or anytime you want a bite of summer.

 Blueberry Pie Ice Cream

 

Man, is it hot. To those deep in winter right now, I’m a tad jealous. To the rest of you, like me, in the heat of summer, I sure hope you’re keeping cool. That blue plastic kiddie pool is looking mighty nice these days. And ice cream sounds divine, doesn’t it?

With a big week coming up, full of cookouts and special parties, I thought of one of our favorite ice cream recipes, Blueberry Pie Ice Cream. I’ve shared it here before, but it bears repeating. It’s super simple. Just perfect for a summer gathering. And it has a secret ingredient.

 Blueberry Pie Ice Cream

 

Yep, graham crackers. They make things real nice.

Plus, you can easily substitute your favorite pie flavor in place of the blueberry to create your own very special creation.

How about cherry? Or peach? Yum! I think I need to go get my churn churning.

    I like all flavors of ice cream, but usually buy vanilla, since it can be “dressed up” with all kinds of additions.

    growing up my favorite frozen treat was a fudge swirl ice cream. Now my palate likes caramel and pecans included…more of a turtle type swirl. YUM. But this blueberry looks divine!

    I think Bluebell used to have a blueberry cobbler flavor that I loved. Right now I’m in love with Bluebell’s Key Lime Pie or their Pineapple and Homemade Vanilla combination. Yum.

    Can you honestly pick out a favorite? I can’t although I would love to have a small ice cream maker. It would make just the right amount. :)

    Ok, any pie, any cake, any ice cream desert, any trifle. etc….

    One of my favorite frozen treats are banana popsicles, and I am on the hunt for the perfect recipe. I also love homemade ice cream, so look forward to making your blueberry pie ice cream soon.

    Omgoodness! I am a huge ice cream addict, and try not to keep it in the house cause I will eat it all!! I grew up in Vermont, the birth place of Ben & Jerry’s, so I was eating that long before it made its way into the stores! But, one of my very favorite frozen treats is Frozen Custard! There are a couple of local places that make it, and its SOO rich & creamy!! Delish!

    I think Brusters’s white chocolate turtle flavor is yummy. At home, Rick Bayless’ lime yogurt ice cream topped with a cajeta sauce is perfect for these hot summer days!

    In the summer, my mom made a pie out of mixed equal parts whipped cream and softened sherbert together served in a graham cracker crust. Sometimes she’d make ice cream sandwiches out of the mixture. So good and such sweet memories :)

  57. 346

    says

    I think my favorite frozen dessert might be this blueberry pie ice cream…I’ll just have to do a couple of switches to make it vegan! Other than that, you can’t go wrong with banana ice cream. That’s what we always made when I was a kid and it takes me back each and every time.

  58. 349

    says

    My favorite frozen treat has to be ice cream. Right now, I’m eyeing your Blueberry Pie recipe and a salted caramel fudge ice cream. Those two will be the next ice cream recipes I tackle.
