I’m crazy about patriotic holidays and Red White and Blueberry No-Churn Ice Cream! Whether we’re remembering our nation’s birthday or honoring the men and women who are serving and/or have given their lives for our freedom, I’m a true patriot.
A few days ago, I was wondering what dessert to serve at our upcoming Memorial Day gathering. Since I’m on a no-churn ice cream kick, I decided to make Red White and Blueberry No-Churn Ice Cream.
Whenever I’m creating a new recipe, I have my family try it and tell me their honest opinion. I got rave reviews on this one.
Helpful Shortcut Hint: The blueberry sauce is amazing and honestly, you can save time by buying premium vanilla ice cream, make the homemade blueberry sauce, serve it in pretty red bowls and call it a patriotic day.
However, I wanted red to be represented in the ice cream, so I added diced strawberries to the base. The blueberry sauce is layered in the middle of the ice cream before freezing.
Red White and Blueberry No-Churn Ice Cream
Combine berries and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat and stir occasionally until berries start to release juices.
Mix the cornstarch with cold water and lemon juice. Stir until smooth. Add to the berry/sugar mixture and stir well. Bring to a boil. Stir occasionally. Reduce heat and simmer for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract. Let cool.
No-Churn Vanilla Ice Cream
Beat 2 cups whipping cream until stiff peaks form, about 2 minutes. Fold in 1 can of sweetened condensed milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and diced strawberries.

I just love homemade ice cream. I need to make it more often. This sounds incredible. I love my berries!
If it is red, white and blue I knew you had to be using strawberries and blueberries. No churn is a quick way to achieve ice cream and adding fruit is always a winner.
This would be a perfect dessert to my Memorial Day party! I’ve been trying to think of different ideas to make that is easy and delicious. I love ice cream myself so this is an easy choice.
