This ice cream is out of this world. I made it for a family gathering and everyone went nuts over it. It does taste just like the premium ice cream you might find in a gourmet ice cream shop, or maybe something Ben & Jerry's would put out.
I used frozen strawberries (which I sliced) instead of blueberries and it was outrageous. Very sweet and creamy and it did taste a lot like strawberry cheesecake.
The recipe is a little confusing because it doesn't say what to do with the extra ice cream mix that is left after you fill the ice cream freezer 2/3 full. Do you use it later as part of this recipe? Do you use it for another batch? I read the recipe several times and was not sure, so I decided it must be extra to make another batch, so that is what I will do.
Also, this amount of graham cracker mixture is (in my opinion) way too much. I used about half of it, and it still seemed like a lot (the graham cracker mixture has the potential to overpower the flavor of the ice cream if you use too much of it.) I think you can safely HALF the amounts for the graham cracker mixture and you will have plenty.
