SpiceDish Saturday {February}: Cocoa-Sour Cream-Blackberry Ice Cream

Happy Valentine's Day!

It's time for another SpiceDish Saturday. Without further ado...

This is one of those staring into the depths of your fridge "I have ½ tub of sour cream left over from tacos and the blackberries from the corner market were 99 cents but I have to eat them today or freeze them, man I am craving chocolate... agggghhh" type of recipes. It was born out of that exact conversation in my head. The sour cream adds a nice tang to the super sweet choco-sugar mixture and the berries are a nice (aha! Healthy!) surprise. A bit unexpected.

There's no custard base so it's really very easy and all the richness comes from the sour cream. Enjoy!

Cocoa-Sour Cream-Blackberry Ice Cream

1 ½ cups sour cream
1 cup sugar
4 tbs dutch cocoa
1 ½ cup frozen blackberries

Heat the sour cream, cocoa and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisking until it comes to a low simmer. Pour mixture into bowl and add blackberries. Cover and place in refrigerator until cooled completely. Once cooled, use a handheld immersion blender to blitz the mixture (if you don't have one a blender works just as well).

Pour into mixer and chill following directions.

Thanks, SpiceDish!

YUM... I bet you could make this with any berry. Sounds delish! Beautiful shot of the berries, too.
