Simple and oh-so-delicious. Created by Bobby Flay.


  1. Combine the blackberries, sugar and lemon juice in a nonreactive bowl.
  2. Let the berries macerate, covered, at room temperature until the juices have run, about 1 hour.
  3. Gently mash berries with a spoon.
  4. Place the softened ice cream in a large bowl and fold in the berry mixture.
  5. *If you prefer, you could just drizzle the sauce on top of individual servings of ice cream*.

You can't go wrong with ice cream and berries! This was a perfect dessert on a very hot day. Made for ZWT8 for the Diners, Winers and Chives team.

Although I did follow the recipe right on down, I had to use frozen blackberries, but that didn't stop the end result from being absolutely great! Loved the easy in making this very nice ice cream! A definite keeper of a recipe! [Made & reviewed in the Almost 5 Special Event]

WOW! Simply delicious! Such an easy recipe! Unfortunately I couldn't wait for it to totally freeze up hard so I ate it when it was what folks in New Jersey call soft serve or custard! I also used French vanilla ice cream for the base. Since I used black berries and the family has a dislike of the seeds, I strained the seeds out with a mesh strainer. A super treat! Made for Veg 'N Swap tag.
