This wild blackberry 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 berries growing in my azalea bushes at the corner of my house. I remember gathering these as a child at the Girl Scout Camp.
We were always told that these are wild black raspberries. However, according to this article, I now believe they are wild blackberries due to the base of the berries and the shape of the stems.
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 blackberry ice cream pie.
My daughter was visiting and suggested adding a little bit of blackberry puree on top to make decorative swirls. That beautiful red-purple color was a nice touch. You can sprinkle a few extra berries on top too.
If you don't have access to wild blackberries purchase some from the store. In fact, you probably could substitute strawberries, raspberries or blueberries in this recipe.
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 5-6 hours for the pie to chill.
