This wild black raspberry ice cream pie is super easy to make. And, it's so tasty, you'll want to eat the whole thing in one sitting.
I've been wanting to try making no-churn ice cream for a while.
I found these yummy wild black raspberries growing in my azalea bushes at the corner of my house. I remember gathering these as a child at the Girl Scout Camp.
You might wonder if these are blackberries or black raspberries. You can tell, according to this article, among other factors, by the color and shape of the stems and leaves.
I managed to collect a good half cup and thought they would be perfect to flavor the ice cream.
Since I had some prepared graham cracker crusts in the pantry, I decided to make a wild black raspberry ice cream pie.
My daughter was visiting and suggested adding a little bit of the puree on top to make decorative swirls. That beautiful red color was a nice touch.
It really was simple to make and tasted great.
I'll definitely be making this one again. I may even try it with my Easy Ice Cream Brownie Cake recipe.
The hardest part is waiting the 5-6 hours for the pie to chill.
