In honor of National Ice Cream Month and the fact that's its summer, we decided to share another homemade ice cream recipe. This one is made from fresh raspberries with some dark chocolate chip chunks. If you think you've had true raspberry ice cream before, you're wrong. The fresh berries in this makes it taste so much sweeter and real. It's very similar to our Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream in that it is easy and cheap. We can't go on long enough about how delicious this ice cream will turn out, so you'll just have to experience it for yourself.
The ingredients are simple for this recipe: sugar, heavy whipping cream, milk, raspberries, a lemon and some chocolate.
Start by throwing 2 cups or 16 oz container of fresh raspberries into a bowl. Add the juice of 1/2 a lemon and 3/4 cup of sugar.
In a separate bowl beat 2 eggs until they are light and fluffy. This took us a couple of minutes.
Next add in 3/4 cup of sugar slowly. After add in 1 cup of milk and 2 cups of heavy whipping cream.
Make sure the cream mixture is thoroughly combined.
Aubree's Note: The hammer was a joke, just in case you couldn't tell. (I couldn't the first time...stick with the blender).
After add the raspberries to the cream mixture.
Ashley's tip: Let the ice cream sit in the freezer overnight. This way it won't melt on you in 2 seconds after you scoop it.
This ice cream sat for 8+ hours before we scooped it.
