Homemade blackberry ripple ice cream has swirls of berry mixed through creamy no-churn ice cream. Perfect for summer.
In this day and age when minimalism and de-cluttering is in, a recipe that doesn’t call for a chunky appliance like an ice cream maker is always a winner.
This creamy, no churn blackberry ripple ice cream uses stiffly whipped cream and condensed milk which together create a wonderfully creamy and smooth texture.
In summer I love to go foraging for blackberries (or brambles) on my parents land. They are definitely a pest plant, they’re invasive, painful and very hard to get rid of. That being said, the abundance of tart berries is something I welcome with open arms considering my own berry bushes don’t produce very much.

Bring the sauce to boil in a saucepan with a tablespoon of sugar and a quarter teaspoon of cornflour to thicken. Then leave it to cool down in the refrigerator.
Whip the cream until stiff peaks form (about 3-4 minutes of whipping), then fold in a can of condensed milk. Now add in half the blackberry sauce, folding it only two or three times so it’s incorporated in the cream mixture in streaks.
Spoon this mixture into a loaf pan and drizzle over the last of the blackberry sauce. You can use a skewer and drag it through the sauce to make some pretty designs.
Freeze the ice cream for at least 7-8 hours before scooping and serving.
