Transparent moment, blueberries are cool to eat, but I do not usually go out of my way to eat them or anything blueberry flavor related.
However, there is a handful of blueberry-flavored desserts that gets me head over heels.
For instance, my grandmother used to make a blueberry pie that was literally, to this day, the best dessert I ever had in my life!
Another example of blueberry greatness is of course the no-churn homemade blueberry ice cream recipe.
This ice cream is so good that I gave myself a pep talk, and the pep talk went like this. “Jeremy, I know this is a hard truth to swallow, but you cannot eat this amazing ice cream for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, every day, no matter how good it is.”
At that moment I said to my conscience, “You know what, you are right”.
I said that while I had an enormous bowl of this blueberry ice cream to the side of me.
As I am typing this, I am eating some of this incredible ice cream right this instant, and here I thought I had a problem with the homemade peanut butter chocolate ice cream recipe.

If you want to eat blueberries without washing them that is your business, but with all the diseases out there I would rather be safe, than sorry.
Are Blueberries Brain Food?
Yes, blueberries are brain food. Blueberries’ ability to be good for your brain comes from the high concentration of antioxidants.
The reason why antioxidants are important is that this component assists with balancing the number of free radicals in your body, ultimately going against oxidative stress.
This leads to supporting a well-functioning and healthy immune system.
Outside the antioxidants, blueberries have other benefits that are useful for the health of your brain. Those benefits are listed below.
- Blueberries are known for bettering your mental health.
- The brain cells get a well-needed boost.
- Your risk for dementia is lowered.
- The effects of Alzheimer’s disease are lowered.
- Forgetting everything you did 15 minutes ago will be reduced or prevented while you age.
- Your focus and concentration will increase tremendously.
Can Frozen Blueberries Be Used Instead Of Fresh?
For this recipe in particular, yes. Whether you use frozen or fresh blueberries the result will still be delicious!

Why Is My Homemade Ice Cream So Icy?
Do you want to hear something contradicting? Ice cream is fire!!! No, not literally, but it is fire as in it is fantastic to my taste buds.

This may sound random, but I also enjoy eating icy foods, like a snow cones.
Now do that mean I want my ice cream to be icy? Absolutely not! To prevent this you can use corn syrup to get that soft consistency that you are looking for.
Why Is My Homemade Ice Cream So Buttery or Greasy?
So your no-churn homemade ice cream is buttery or greasy – what a bummer. It happens and here’s the culprit!
The main culprit for a buttery or greasy ice cream that leaves a greasy film on a tongue is the butterfat content being too high and over-whipping your heavy cream.
Therefore, ensure you’re not using too much heavy cream based on the other ingredients in your recipe.
For instance, based on your other ingredients you may have to incorporate some half and half milk or whole milk to reduce the butterfat content in your ice cream recipe.
Whipping your creams creates a structure that helps you create creamy ice cream that’s scoopable.
However, overwhipping separates the milk and butter which creates the cream, which then results in a buttery or greasy ice cream.
So again, avoid over-whipping your heavy cream to avoid creating a buttery or greasy ice cream.
Is No-churn Homemade Ice Cream Better With Or Without Eggs?
Using eggs for your no-churn homemade ice cream will be based on multiple factors. One factor is based on the texture of the ice cream. Eggs consist of mainly fat which will affect the texture.
The fat, which makes up a good portion of the egg, freezes differently than water.
For instance, ice cream using water instead of eggs will come out a lot harder. Eggs, on the other hand, will make the ice cream soft and creamy.
Another factor to take into consideration is the taste that comes with eggs. If you do not want the flavor of eggs in your no-churn homemade ice cream, then do not use eggs.
