Directions For The Ice Cream:

  1. Add cream cheese to bowl of stand mixer or medium sized bowl if using hand mixer.

  2. Beat on medium high speed then slowly add in condensed milk and vanilla extract and mix until completely smooth.

  3. Turn off mixer and fold whipped cream into cream cheese mixture using a spatula

  4. Once whipped cream is folded in, carefully fold blueberries into batter only folding 3 – 4 times just until the blueberries have distinctly swirled through batter (don’t over fold the blueberries because you will turn the entire ice cream mixture blue)

  5. To freeze, alternate adding ice cream mixture and graham cracker crumbs to freezer safe containers. Freeze for at least 5 – 7 hours then serve.
