You can make this recipe two different ways. If you like smooth blueberry ice cream, be sure to strain the blueberries as the recipe instructs. If you'd like to have some blueberry chunks in your ice cream, simply don't strain the blueberries.

Whatever you decide, this fresh ice cream is sure to taste great on a hot summer day.

Serving Tip: Blueberry ice cream looks classy served with some fresh, loose blueberries and a mint sprig for garnish.

We ate all our blueberry ice cream before I had a chance to take a picture!

In a saucepan, heat milk just until it begins to bubble.

Pour hot milk into egg mixture and blend well.

Pour mixture back into saucepan and heat over low heat. Stir constantly until the mixture thickens and starts to stick to your spoon.

Chill the custard base about 2 hours - until it too has completely cooled.

When both the blueberries and the milk mixture have cooled, stir in the heavy cream, and vanilla.

Mix well.

Churn this mixture about 25-30 minutes or according to manufacturer's instructions.
