  • This recipe allows you to make real, creamy ice cream in just seconds, perfect for when you crave something sweet without the wait.
  • With the option to add ingredients like chocolate syrup, nuts, or sprinkles, this recipe offers the flexibility to create your own unique ice cream flavors tailored to your taste.
  • This is a lighter option as it doesn’t require added sugar or eggs, and it’s easier because it does not require any special equipment like an ice cream maker.

Ingredients For Blender Ice Cream

  • Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 10-ounce bag of frozen berries or any other frozen fruit. You may also use fresh fruit, but you will need to cut it up into 1 to 2-inch pieces and freeze it before making the ice cream.

How To Make Blender Ice Cream

For best results, you want to use a high-powered blender, like Blendtec, but this recipe also works with regular blenders. I have used a food processor, and that worked just as well. However, you may need to add more liquid to get it to blend.

  1. Add the frozen fruit to the blender. If using a sweetener, add it on top of the berries inside the blender.
  2. Process/pulse just until the fruit is roughly chopped.
  3. Pour in the heavy cream, and continue to process just until everything is incorporated. Scrape down the sides with a spatula as needed.
  4. Scoop it out and serve.

Recipe Tips And Variations

  • Dairy-Free Option: Substitute dairy with coconut cream by blending 1 can (14 ounces) of unsweetened coconut cream with 3 cups of frozen berries.
  • Understanding Heavy Cream: Heavy cream, or heavy whipping cream, is a high-fat part of milk, often used in recipes for its richness and is readily available at grocery stores.
  • Sweetener is Optional: Sweetening the ice cream is not necessary. Add it only if you prefer a sweeter taste, or consider using a ripe banana for natural sweetness.
  • Serving Suggestions: Enjoy this ice cream as soft serve right out of the blender, or freeze it to scoop and serve in cones for a firmer texture.

Proper Storage

Transfer the ice cream to an airtight container, layer plastic wrap over the surface of the ice cream to prevent ice crystals from forming, cover it with a lid, and keep it in the freezer for 1 to 2 weeks.

    Perfect! What a great idea, I used blueberries and opted for no sugar. It’s delicious, thanks!

    1. Katerina Petrovska says:

      Thank you so much! I’m very glad you enjoyed it! 🙂

  2. Shirley Hill says:

    Love it but is there whipping cream with no dairy

    1. Katerina says:

      Yes. Blend 1 can (14 ounces) of unsweetened coconut cream with 3 cups of frozen berries.

    One other thing I neglected to mention. No sugar is used in recipe with avocados. We don’t need sugar with the strawberries that grow in our area. They are called Hood berries and are super sweet naturally. As soon as being picked, they need to be taken care of because of the high sugar content, they will spoil if just left alone, like the berries you find in stores.

    1. Katerina says:

      Thanks sooo much for sharing!! I appreciate it ❤️ And now I want Hood berries.

    2. Anna says:

      How can this be made into chocolate ice cream

      1. Katerina says:

        You can add cocoa powder to the mixture.

    As far as non-dairy is concerned… I have a recipe given to me by a Vitamix distributor, so I’m not sure I can post entire recipe. It uses coffee creamer, not very much, but no berries. The big thing that makes it creamy is avocado. Not avocado oil. The real thing. One version uses carrots that tastes exactly like orange sherbet. I’m sure the recipe would accommodate berries. I like to use vanilla almond milk, personally.

    How many servings does this make? Or scoops?
