Blueberry-Sour Cream Ice Cream
Blueberry Sour Cream Ice Cream in my new Crate and Barrel mini bowl...I forgot to remove the C&B sticker - can you see it?

I’m completely sleep deprived and it’s only day 4 of the Olympics. So many events, so little time. I’ve been enjoying the Olympics and luckily, I made this ice cream before the opening ceremonies and two weeks of athletic coverage (albeit 15 hour delayed on the West Coast).

I just wish there was a filter I could set on my web browser that blocks out the results! However, all the events are really exciting! I love the swimming, gymnastics and beach volleyball makes me want to run to the beach!

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was chosen by Dolores of Chronicles in Culinary Curiosity. (Recipe on her website and on page 434 of Dorie’s book). Great choice!

The night before…blueberries, sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice are heated together for a few minutes (above).

The warm mixture is blended. I didn't put on the cover correctly and the "opening" triangle was next to the spout. I had lots of blueberry on the cabinets! Then heavy cream and sour cream are added. This recipe is easy because there are no eggs. After cooling overnight, the mixture was already a little thick. I poured it into the Krups machine that my friend Jessica loaned me (Thanks Jessica!)

Yippee! Poof! 12 minutes later and I had ice cream!! Like magic. This was my first time making ice cream...and won't be the last.

Glad you enjoyed the ice cream.

I'm an Olympics junkie. My Tivo is working overtime. Now if people would just stop spoiling the results for me!

I'm with you on the sleep-deprivation due to the Olympics. =) But hey, it's only two weeks, right? I've been avoiding the internet as well. Cute bowl, and lovely color on the ice cream. That's the only thing that makes me wish I liked blueberries--the purple is so cool.

Blueberries on the cabinets - sounds like something I'd do! Your ice cream is so pretty, especially in those brand spanking new bowls.

I am totally consumed by the Olympics right now. So funny about your cabinets getting a taste of ice cream from the maker. I always forget to put my blender cap on tight so I made a mess! Love your mini bowls! Great job!

I did the same thing with my blender and whoosh! I had boiling hot blueberries everywhere - even the ceiling!

Your ice cream looks great! I'm with you on watching the Olympics. Gymnastics and swimming are my favorites and it's hard to have to get up early when I want to stay up and finish watching!

The color is amazing! Wow, it looks sooooo good. I love that the sticker is still on your bowl ... I am horrible about removing price tags from my bowls. I figure the dishwasher will eventually do the work for me :-)

Great job! When I'm sleep deprived, I put the milk in the cupboard and the cereal in the fridge. You are impressive! ;)

I love it that you you can churn ice cream and do something else at the same time, thank goodness for ice cream machines!
