How to Make Blueberry Ice Cream
Blueberry ice cream is a very refreshing delicacy loaded with beneficial nutrients that can be made in just a few minutes.
All that you need are fresh or frozen blueberries, some low-fat or cottage cheese, perhaps some ice and you are good to go ...

Blueberries are available year-long - fresh or frozen. Personally, I prefer fresh ones, but frozen ones are great, too.
Also, using frozen blueberries requires less time in the refrigerator for ice cream to get its creamy consistency.
Put blueberries in a suitable tall pot.
I use sports shakers that can be purchased cheaply - they last for a long time and are very easy to clean.
Now, add some low-fat or cottage cheese and some cold water or even ice cubes.
If you can get whole goat milk, add it and forget water or additional calories - a few extra calories are nothing compared with the benefits that such milk provide.
Anyway, low-fat or cottage cheese is a great source of calcium and slow-digesting proteins, mainly casein.
This way, we have great-tasting ice cream that can be used for daily snacks or even as a full meal.
Using a hand stick blender, blend everything.
Remember when I said 'suitable tall pot' - stains from blueberries, blackberries, and berries, in general, are hard to clean from clothes and other surfaces, so be sure to have a really tall pot and apron - better safe than sorry :)
Note: by varying the amount of liquids, one can change thickens of ice cream.
And that is all - thick, creamy delicacy is prepared. It can be served right away, or you can put it in ice cream containers and in the refrigerator/freezer for 30-60 minutes for ice cream to become even thicker.
Blueberry ice cream represents a full meal - it is packed with complex carbs, fibers, slow-digesting protein, it has some healthy fats, especially if made using whole goat or similar milk, and it has vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants in abundance.
Note: if you like, before serving the blueberry smoothie/ice cream, add some powdered dark chocolate on top of the ice cream.
