  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 heaping cups blueberries washed and picked over
  • 2 cups half and half


  • Add the blueberries to a medium saucepan. Pour the sugar over the top. Heat on medium heat until blueberries release liquid, and the sugar dissolves- about 5 minutes.
  • (Optional) Blend the blueberry mixture just enough to ensure no huge blueberry chunks.
  • Cover the mixture and refrigerate until cold.
  • Mix the half and half and the blueberry mixture. Pour the mixture into the ice cream maker, and turn it on OR pour into a freezer-safe bowl and freeze until it reached the desired firmness- 2 to 4 hours.


I used 1 cup sugar and the result was quite sweet.  Sugar could be reduced if you prefer a healthier treat.
