Blackberry Crisp Ice Cream (+ Berry Picking)

Blackberry Crisp Ice Cream (+ Berry Picking)

On the drive up to Lake Tahoe, M and I made a quick pitstop to pick berries. M’s favorite fruit is raspberries of all kinds and my desire to bridge the gap between home and here left my wanting black raspberries (funny enough we met another woman from the midwest who mentioned that if you aren’t from the midwest, you don’t understand how wonderful black raspberries are.)

On the way home, we chatted about what would become of all these berries. The raspberries would be left for snacking and breakfast (M managed to eat a rather large portion over a day’s time) and the blackberries were left for me to experiment with. I mentioned a blackberry swirl ice cream and M immediately replied that I should do it Ben and Jerry’s style and make it blackberry cobbler ice cream. I opted for the crisp version and left the granola out to be sprinkle on top, however, you could mix it in.
