Save Recipe


  • 2 cups heavy cream (whole milk will work too, it just won't be as creamy) You can also make this paleo by subbing full fat coconut milk for the whole milk

  1. Put all the ingredients in a blender
  2. Blend on high until smooth and creamy

    This sounds so yummy! I made a similar blueberry ice cream this weekend for company and it was a huge hit! Who needs an ice cream maker!? I would love it if you would stop by anytime after 8pm tomorrow (Tuesday) evening to share this with my recipe link party, The Yuck Stops Here.
