TWD:BERRY SOUR CREAM CHIP ICE CREAM




Dolores of
Chronicles in Culinary Curiosity picked this week's TWD recipe, Blueberry Sour Cream ice cream. This was my first time making ice cream and I can hardly wait to make more! I bought the ice cream maker attachment for my Kitchen Aid a while back and for some reason never got around to making any. Naturally, I was excited to put it to use when I saw this week's recipe selection. I made a few minor changes to the recipe. I was away on vacation all last week so I hardly had time to shop. I rummaged through my freezer hoping to find some sort of frozen fruit and I found a bag of mixed berries, including raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries. I followed the rest of the recipe as is; using sour cream, lemon, sugar and cream and added mini chocolate chips at the end for some crunch. If there's one thing I learned throughout my baking adventures it's this: adding chocolate can never hurt anyone :)

P.S. Please disregard the mini fruit fly on the bottom right scoop of ice cream. My intent was to add chocolate chips not bugs! I noticed this as I was posting so lets just pawn it off as a berry seed...please forgive me =)

I hate those stinkin' fruit flies. But I have to admit that it took me forever to see it in the picture, even after I was looking.

Many times I have posted the perfect picture, only to discover there's a hair in the food. ARRGGHH!!!

I would never have noticed the fruit fly. :)

Pamela said...

Didn't even see the little fly until you pointed him out. Oh well, I guess he likes chocolate chips, too. Nice addition! The chocolate, not the fly, of course. ;o)

Looks delicious! Great idea for the chocolate chips. I didn't even notice the fruit fly. I wouldn't worry about it.
