here is a glimpse of the nature during my stay

 

Now that I am back, refreshed,rejuvenated.. Soon I am going to share some fabulous  recipes. Today’s recipe is part of our theme based group “Kitchen Divas”. This is the our third theme and we are certainly enjoying this. Keeping the rising mercury in mind,we settled upon #frozentreat this time. If its frozen dessert then it has to be ice-cream

Blueberries are still difficult to source here in India. Even if you spot any,they price a bomb. Few months back I sighted packaged frozen berries in a gourmet store and obviously grabbed couple of packets. I wanted to use them in a special way. And after this months theme was declared I started doing a happy dance because I knew where those little blue pearls are going to be used

If you love cheesecake,then You are definitely going to enjoy this

Ingredients
  

For Ice-Cream Base

  • 2 cups cream cheese full fat chilled (I used Philadelphia)
  • 1.5 cups whipping cream , chilled (Minimum 30 % fat) heavy
  • ¼ cup milk full fat
  • ½ u2013 ¾ cups sugar fine granulated (add as per taste)
  • 1 vanilla bean seeds , scraped
  • 2 tbsps vodka kirsch / (Optional,but boosts the flavour)

For Blueberry sauce

  • 2 cups blueberry (I used frozen)
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¾ cups water
  • 1 vanilla bean seeds , scraped
  • lemon Zest of a
  • 1 tbsps corn starch (mixed in 1 tbsp water )

Instructions

  • .Pour all the ice-cream base ingredients in a blender, blend until everything is mixed properly.
  • Pour the cheese mixture into a shallow,flat,rectangular air-tight container. Press plastic wrap on the top(this is important) and cover the container. And Jeep the container in a coolest part of your freezer.(for about 45 minutes).
  • Mean while in a  heavy bottom pan,add blueberries,sugar,water and the vanilla bean. bring in to a boil.Keep stirring the mixture regularly. Once the berries are cooked,press slightly the berries in the back of the spatula. Stir the corn starch mixture slowly.Add the lemon zest.Simmer until the sauce is thick enough and coats back of the spoon. Cover the sauce and let it cool.
  • After 45 minutes, remove the ice-cream container from freezer.you might notice that the mixture has started to set from the sides. Using a spatula start breaking the mixture and using a spatula or a hand blender blend the mixture vigorously to break any Ice-Crystal formed. Repeat the procedure at least 2-3 times(i.e. freezing for 45 minutes and churning process).
  • Finally spoon blueberry sauce in to the ice-cream churned mixture. Stir it,to give a swirl look. Reserve any extra sauce to top while serving. (At this point If you want you can shift the ice-cream to the Serving container and then swirl the sauce).
  • Freeze the container covered at-least  5-6 hours or overnight.
  • 15-20 minutes before serving,take the ice-cream out of the freezer and keep in the refrigerator. This makes easy to scoop out the Ice-Cream.
  • The Ice-Cream is best to be consumed with in 2 to 3 days.

Notes

Note:.
If you have Ice-cream maker,please use it as per manufacturers instruction. (I don’t have the luxury of having one).
The amount of sugar in blueberry sauce depends on the sweetness of berries used,so adjust accordingly.
Use best quality cream cheese available to you, because the cheese makes all the difference.
