No-Churn Blueberry Graham Cracker Ice Cream

This sweet and creamy no-churn ice cream features a fresh blueberry jam swirl and graham cracker pieces. You can use raspberries in place of the blueberries for a different berry flavor. —Heather King, Frostburg, Maryland

    We followed this direction to a T and it didnt really ever set. The bluberry sauce was very tasty, but we didnt love the condensed milk/heavy whipped cream combo. We enjoyed the berry-graham cracker combo and the bowl looked lovely with the swirl. Not sure if we'd make again though.

    I will no longer be buying ice cream after trying this recipe! I made it using blackberries and added more graham crackers and my family loved it! The whipping cream and condensed milk makes this the perfect base for any add in including crushed oreo’s!

    This was so easy to make, and delicious! I'm looking forward to trying it again using blackberries. Helpful hint: use a full can of sweetened condensed milk, which equals 1 cup liquid measure. I wasn't sure so poured out into measuring cup.

    Oh my goodness, what a tasty recipe! I used blackberries instead of blueberries. Also, I used cinnamon graham crackers instead of regular. My kids went crazy over this ice cream!

    This was an easy recipe with great results. It is sweet and creamy, no surprise looking at the ingredients. I made both blueberry and blackberry. It's excellent as is, but for personal preference I too would probably add more graham crackers and some vanilla to the cream mixture.

    This was simply fantastic! So easy and so delicious! I used black raspberries as I had some in the freezer we had picked last year and everyone flipped over this ice cream. I might add a little more crushed graham crackers next time as they tasted so good in the creamy goodness. Definitely a keeper!!
