- 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
- 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!
