How to make Blueberry Ice Cream and Sorbet


Follow manufacturer's instructions on how to prepare your ice cream maker. If making these two desserts one after another, begin with Blueberry Sorbet, to keep the sorbet dairy-free.

Blueberry Sorbet

  1. Boil sugar and water in a medium saucepan. Reduce heat and simmer without stirring until sugar is completely dissolved. Transfer to a bowl and cool completely.
  2. Macerate the blueberries with lemon juice. See this photo of blueberries macerating in lemon juice.
  3. Add blueberry mixture to the sugar/water bowl and let it chill for an hour.
  4. Churn the mixture in an ice cream maker for at least 30 minutes or until thickened into a soft-serve consistency.
  5. Freeze for at least 2 hours if a firmer sorbet is desired.
