  • 4 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 lemon zest finely grated and juiced
  • cups Swerve Confectioners
  • 4 cups half-and-half
  1. Combine the blueberries, water, lemon zest and juice, and Swerve in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Lower the temperature and simmer, uncovered, until the blueberries are very soft. Strain the mixture into a large mixing bowl through a fine sieve. Whisk in the half-and-half. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight.
  2. Pour mixture into an ice cream maker and process according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Scrape the ice cream into a loaf or cake pan, cover, and freeze until firm, about 2 hours. Can be stored in the freezer, covered, for up to a week.
Recipe Notes

Depending on the size of your ice cream maker, you may need to process the mixture in two batches.

    would this work with coconut milk?

      Hi Patricia, I haven’t tested it with coconut milk but it should work fairly well. Just make sure you use full-fat coconut milk (the canned stuff). Let me know how it goes!

    It looks good but I am wondering if a mashed banana might give it enough sweetening without the Swerve. I guess the texture would be different but maybe still good? Not sure but like to avoid sweeteners. Love the color. I will play with this and let you know if I have success.

    Hi! Would this work with other fruits, like strawberries, peaches, blackberries, razberries, etc?

      I haven’t tried it with those fruits but yes, it should work just fine. You might need a little less liquid since some of those fruits have a higher water content, but otherwise should be good! Let me know how it goes. Hope you enjoy :)

    ? What is the benefit of adding Swerve into the heating ingredients? Wouldn’t it be just as sweet & mix well if added after straining, add swerve then cream.
