This frozen confection will forever spoil you. Store-bought ice cream may never be cool again. Yes, it’s that good and easy to make without an ice cream maker.
About the chia seed – it thickens any excess liquid and you know how fruit likes to jam. Like the chocolate and vanilla swirl, this easy berry ice cream is a killer. And the perfect way to chill on a steamy day.
For this batch I used a combination of blackberries and raspberries, but add whatever fruit floats your ice cream boat. Really great for festive holidays.
- 2 cups berries, cooked slightly and mashed
- 1 tablespoon ground chia seeds, optional
- 1-14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon butter, melted
- 2 cups (1 pint) heavy cream, whipped
Heat 2 cups of fresh or frozen berries in a covered microwave dish for 2 minutes. If you can stand the heat, use your stove to cook fruit or even oven roast for deeper flavor. Add chia seeds to thicken juice if you like. Set fruit mixture aside.
In a medium bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, and butter. Blend this mixture into prepared whipped cream.
Fold fruit into ice cream. It's delicious; take a taste. Freeze for 3 - 4 hours before serving. Great with a daily brownie.
