Blueberry Sour Cream Ice Cream

I was pretty iffy about putting a good amount of sour cream into ice cream. I've heard of sour cream being served on apple pie, or going into other desserts, but I'd never tried it. Sour cream just doesn't scream "dessert!" to me. However, this week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was a sour cream and blueberry ice cream.

First of all...wow, look at that color. The blueberries really turned...whatever that color is. The flavor is definitely unique. It almost has a taste similar to cream cheese with blueberries, but that's probably just all the different creams getting mixed together. This isn't one of my favorite Dorie recipes, but it's not terrible.

Having made blueberry ice cream not too long ago, I can compare the two and definitely say that I prefer the other recipe. It's simpler - I think the sour cream just overdoes it. Also the color doesn't remind me of freaky alien gunk. I really have no clue what could have been wrong with my blueberries for this batch.

I ended up with purple lemon frozen yogurt. Too much sour going on for me as well.

That other ice cream looks really good too. There is a big difference in color isn't there? I like the shockingly bright color I think we all got, I think it's neat.
