Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

Thursday, June 26, 2014


With summer berry season in full swing and a bucket of berries that my boys and I had picked, I decided to {recreate} a memory I have with my Grandma. I love any type of vanilla ice cream, however, whenever I see little black flecks of vanilla goodness I know that I'm in for a special treat.

An icy popsicle coats a creamy ice cream center to create a refreshing and nostalgic frozen treat. I had a berry puree of raspberries, strawberries and POG (Passion-Orange-Guava juice) from some other Popsicles I made and some homemade French vanilla ice cream. It turns out that this is a divine combo.

I love this pie during summer and I love this pie during winter (when I'm dreaming of summer). The "little wild blackberries" are the perfect combination of tart and sweet. If you don't have wild Pacific blackberries you can use the berry of your choice.

Your kids can help make these pocket pies which are like a cross between a piece of pie and a fruit-filled pastry. Let them choose their favorite fruit filling and let them cut them in the shape of their choice.
