Blueberry cream cheese ice cream with blackberies, blueberries and a papaya coulis. This is the creamiest ice cream I have ever tasted. Try it for yourself. When I posted this on Facebook a few days ago I was overwhelmed with recipe requests but only one person, that I am aware of, actually made it and posted it Annie - The Chocolate Goddess, scroll around a bit you will find the ice cream, that is if you dont fall into a chocolate trance along the way. Thanks Annmarie for trying the recipe! In fact she tightened up the recipe wording and now I am using her version.
Blueberry Cream Cheese Ice Cream (recipe by Christo)
1 quart heavy cream
3 egg yolks
1 tablespoon cornstarch (adds a nice mouth feel to the finished ice cream)
1 vanilla bean, scraped
1-2 cups sugar, to taste
1 basket fresh blueberries, washed and dried thoroughly
1- 8 ounce package cream cheese
Scald the milk and eggs and vanilla being careful not to let it curdle. Take a small amount of this mixture and add the cornstarch whisking out any lumps. Remove from heat. Mix in blueberries and blend with an immersion blender to break up the berries.
Strain the mixture into a large mixing bowl. Add sugar and cream cheese. Whip until frothy. Add to ice cream maker as per instructions or place in metal bowl in freezer and remove every 15 minutes and stir. When frozen to desired consistency serve and enjoy and put whatever you dont gobble down in a freezer safe container, let sit out to soften slightly before serving again, if you do end up saving some.
Try it - tell me what you think.
