Ingredients :

  • 3 cups fresh blackberries (My blackberries were so large it only took 3 cups. If your berries are small, you might want to use 4 cups)2/3 cup white granulated sugar

    1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

    2 teaspoons vanilla extract

    2 cups heavy whipping cream

Directions :

  1. Combine the 3 cups of blackberries with the sugar and mix to sweeten the berries. (You could use less sugar if your berries are sweet)  Mash 2 cups of the sweetened berries with a potato masher and set the other cup aside.  Mix together the condensed milk and vanilla with a spoon in a separate bowl and set aside.  Whip the heavy cream with a mixer until stiff peaks form.  Fold in the milk and vanilla with a spoon.  Add ice cream mixture to a 2 quart container and swirl in the mashed blackberries with a knife.  (I just use a tupperware bowl with a top but you can use whatever you have)  Fold in the remaining cup of whole blackberries with a spoon.  Freeze at least 6 to 8 hours or until consistency you like.  Let sit a few minutes to soften before dipping.  Makes about 1 1/2 quarts.  Enjoy!
