How to Make Vegan Blackberry Ice Cream

It’s time to bust out that ice cream maker because the summer weather is officially here (at least in the south) and it’s brutal out there that’s why my churn bowl will live in the freezer all summer so I’m always ready to make a fresh batch of ice cream.

Here’s how to make it:

TIP Place the churn bowl of your ice cream maker into the freezer at least 24 hours before you are ready to make the ice cream to ensure it’s completely frozen.

Next, make your compote by placing all the ingredients into a small pot over medium heat until bubbles form and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally and then remove from heat and let cool.

Once your churn bowl is completely frozen, stir together your ice cream ingredients, add them to the churn bowl let your ice cream maker do it’s thing. Mine takes about 15 minutes to get nice and thick. Once it’s ready, transfer the ice cream to a freezer safe container and layer it with compote and graham cracker crumbs. Cover and freeze for at least three hours. If you freeze longer than that, you will need to let it defrost for a 10-15 minutes before serving.

Would honey work in place of the maple syrup? I’m allergic to maple. Thanks.
