    Wow, I’m going to have to try this – I also balked at the number of egg yolks in the recipe I posted! I seriously considered cutting them down, but I wasn’t sure how well it would work. But now, thanks to you I know: recipes without eggs will still be delicious (and gorgeous)!

    Air conditioners can make all the difference. Man, is it H.O.T. right now. This ice cream is fabulous too. Yum!

    I really like the idea of a sour cream base to your ice cream especially alongside the sweetness of blueberries. So good.

    So basically this is blueberry cheesecake ice cream…? I’m in! I think custard-based ice creams are such a pain, and I don’t actually think I’ve ever made any that wasn’t in the fall or winter. I made some honey ice cream (an alice medrich recipe) that was the simplest thing ever — just required cream, milk and honey and it just required sit time in the fridge. I still think it was the best ice cream I’ve ever tried! So I’m all for nonconventional techniques when it comes to ice cream.

    And I’m glad to see you’re in the era of AAC now. ;) Although I was pleased to see that I’m not the only one that can muster eating cereal for most of my meals!

    Hm, I think I’ve just found the next ice cream I need to churn out! (I was eying the David Lebovitz recipe for strawberry-sour cream ice cream in the Perfect Scoop earlier this week, but I don’t think I’ll be able to find strawberries at the market at this point.) Sadly, I’m still in the era of before-AC. The boyfriend–I wouldn’t dare trying to deal with our heavy window units myself–hasn’t found the time to install our units. (To be fair to him, it only got unbearably hot in the last couple of days.) And even when they do go in, I’m sure the kitchen will still be plenty hot (they’re not big enough to cool the whole apartment). But until then, the heat means that I can dip into the freezer stash whenever I want, right?

    Hurray for AC!!!! I want like a thousand ACs right now. One in the living room usually cuts it, but not today. After I write this comment, I’m going to go take my third shower of the day, and then I’m not leaving the living room for the rest of the night.

    And this ice cream…YES. You know I love the minimal stove time of custardless ice creams! (Who wouldn’t, right?) And it’s like you totally read my mind, because I’ve been dreaming of a tangy blueberry swirl ice cream for the past couple weeks. I bought a container of Greek yogurt last week because I wanted to drain it for labneh, then make a labneh blueberry swirl ice cream with some sort of crazy graham cracker cinnamon streusel. But the kitchen is the hottest place in the apartment right now (I swear, all the horrible air just gathers there), and I refuse to go in there for more than two minutes at a time. I had to put groceries away today, and I wanted to cry.

    Oh! And I think the custard yielding a better consistency has something to do with the protein content of the eggs. So when you sub in other thick-ish high protein thing (like yogurt or sour cream), that keeps the consistency nice and creamy.

    Girl, I don’t know how you survived so long without A/C! Especially this summer– it’s been sweltering hot and honestly unbearable. I seriously can’t wait for fall!

    This ice cream looks to die for. I have a zillion blueberries chilling in my freezer from when I had to hurry and stash ‘em before I left for CA a few weeks ago so I’m looking for something to stick them in. I wonder what this would look like with kefir and soy milk…those are the only dairies I have in the fridge at the moment. :-p

    Cheers for A/C. I exactly know what you are talking about, suffered for a month without one and I kept praying the weather would get better. This icecream looks so delicious, with berry picking on full swing, this recipe is a winner.
    I’ve heard of it somewhere…I live 2 minutes away from Lake Elizabeth…such a beautiful place.

    I did this ice cream yesterday. It was a-m-a-z-i-n-g! Loved how tart the ice cream is and then the blueberry sirup sweetens it up in little bursts. Finally we are having proper summer weather here in Sweden as well so there will be a lot of ice cream made in our household over the next few weeks! Thanks for adding one more recipe to my favourites list!

    This sounds so simple and delicious! I just had some blackberry ice cream today that I wished had been more tangy – this recipe would totally solve that. I love your site. :)

    Oh yum……just wandering….how would honey,banana peanutbutter swirled into that sour cream tase…..maybe a tad cinnamon & vanilla also……the blue berry has knocked my socks off…..so to speak….I live in South Florida. And I love Snow……I fully understand being without AC …being 71 I lived a lot of years in a melted state of being. LOL. Thanks for the inspiration, nice to say hello.
