No Churn Blueberry Ice Cream

July: National Blueberry Month, National Ice Cream Month

Texas is home to beautiful bluebonnets but there are bountiful blueberries on a few farms, too. Every summer if we can/are able, we try to go pick blueberries at Moorhead’s Blueberry Farm in Conroe, Texas, the state’s first commercially operated blueberry farm since the mid-1970s.


After sweating on the farm working to fill our baskets with five pounds each, we still had more than enough to snack on these fruits or cook with them. We have made blueberry muffins, scones, cobblers, clafoutis, cheesecakes, pies, popovers and pancakes before. But for this particular post, we made no-churn blueberry ice cream as a doubly delicious way to celebrate National Blueberry Month and keep cool this summer during National Ice Cream Month.

  • 4 cups blueberries
  • ¼ cup sugar, granulated white
  • 1 lemon, juiced and zested
  • 2 cups (1 pint) heavy whipping cream
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk


Wash and dry blueberries. Place in a blender and puree them. Add the sugar and blend well.

Transfer the pureed blueberries to a small saucepan. Add the lemon juice and zest. Bring to a boil on the stove, stirring constantly. Lower the heat to medium and simmer until thickened, about 10-15 minutes. Remove from the stovetop and cool completely.

In a large mixing bowl, pour the condensed milk. Stir in the cooled blueberry mix. In a separate mixing bowl, beat the heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form.

Fold the whipped cream into the blueberry mixture until well combined. Place in a large loaf pan or ice cream container. Freeze overnight. Scoop and serve with fresh blueberries.


  • We usually give away some of our fresh-picked blueberries from our abundance to  elderly friends so they could enjoy the summer fruits, too. With our labor, sometimes they give back with a blueberry dessert! Sharing surely is caring!
