I love making a warm blueberry crumble then topping it with a giant scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream. When the ice cream melts ever so slightly atop the pile of warm plump berries and crisp oat topping it just makes me so happy.
Since it’s National Ice Cream Month, I decided to marry the combination into one out of this world Blueberry Crumble Ice Cream.
Creamy vanilla ice cream is swirled with plump blueberries in a sweet blueberry sauce, while a crisp oat crumble gives the ice cream a delicious crunch in every bite.
I made a very simple vanilla ice cream base that consists of nutrient rich milk and heavy cream. When you make your own ice cream you know exactly what’s going in there, and that’s what I love about it.
Pure and simple.
For the blueberries I made an easy blueberry compote, and then thickened it up a bit with some cornstarch. When I added them to the vanilla ice cream I kept a little of that syrup to drizzle on the finished ice cream. I recommend doing the same. It was perfect!
I’m absolutely head over heels in love with this ice cream.
I mean… just look at this stuff!!
Add some more of that sweet blueberry syrup on top.
Two scoops are definitely better than one.
