Blackberries are in season! I picked a bunch while we were at the cabin the other day, and since then, I’ve made three batches of blackberry ice cream. It’s just that good – and that easy to make. Here’s the recipe, so you can see for yourself.

Homemade Blackberry Ice Cream Recipe


This recipe can be made with fresh or frozen blackberries. If you’re using frozen, just let them thaw first.

What You Do:

Blackberry Puree

Puree the blackberries in a blender or food processor. I like to puree mine just enough to get a jam like consistency. This leaves little bits of berry in the finished ice cream.

Strain Seeds Out of Blackberries

If you don’t like blackberry seeds, or just don’t want them in your ice cream, puree your blackberries until they reach a smooth consistency. Then, use a fine-mesh sieve to strain the seeds out.
