When I was a little girl, there was a company that made a red, white and blue ice cream for patriotic holidays. I don’t remember the brand that made the delicious strawberry, vanilla and blueberry ice cream, but I do know, I loved it.

I looked forward to that treat every year.

But, somewhere along the way, it became impossible to find.


I’ve searched every grocery store in a fifty mile radius from my house and it simply cannot be found.

In fact, blueberry ice cream seems to be a nonexistent option!

So, when I become nostalgic for that old ice cream, I have to improvise and make my own.

But, this semi-homemade blueberry ice cream is super easy to make!

The kids can even help…

It requires just 4 ingredients…

And it only takes 10 minutes (or less) to throw together!

The problem is, it’s so good and so easy to make, you’ll probably want to eat a lot of it!

And so will your family, so be sure to make enough to share!

Here’s the recipe:
