Lemon Blueberry Ice Cream Bars

Fresh blueberries are one of my favorite parts of summer. I went blueberry picking with my mom every year growing up. I loved finding the biggest, plumpest blueberries and popping them in my mouth.


My mom and I would return home with buckets of blueberries, and we sprinkled them on everything—oatmeal, yogurt, salads, etc. But my favorite way to eat them was with ice cream. We would make a quick blueberry sauce with a little sugar, lemon juice, and cornstarch. I spooned an extra generous portion atop my ice cream for the ultimate blueberry sundae. 


Hudsonville’s Limited Edition Blueberry Graham Delight ice cream reminds me of those sweet summer memories. Their rich vanilla ice cream is mixed with blueberry sauce and ribbons of graham cracker. Every bite is filled with fresh blueberry taste.


I wanted to create an easy dessert with this ice cream—something I could keep in my freezer and pull out to serve others (and myself) for an extra special treat. 


Blueberry with lemon is one of my favorite flavor combinations, so I made blueberry ice cream bars using crushed lemon sandwich cookies mixed with butter as the base. I tested the ratio of cookies to butter many times to make sure it was the right consistency and not too hard to cut into.


Of course, the ice cream bars wouldn’t be complete without my favorite blueberry sauce on top. Keep the sauce chilled in your refrigerator and spoon it over your ice cream bars when ready to serve.


I promise you’ll want this tasty time treat stocked in your freezer all summer long! Use this Scoop Locator tool to find Blueberry Graham Delight ice cream at a store near you.

  1. I am Alecia Maldonado used every single spell worker on the internet, spent untold amounts of money and discovered they are all fakes...i was the fool though; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. In the end, I decided that I wanted a tarot reading to know what my future held for me; I contacted a woman who lives locally to me and she told me about a man named (Dr Mandaker); he just got he just got his website (holyaraminta.com), has another job for income, has no set prices, makes no false promises and refuses to help anyone that cannot be helped and even helps
    for free sometimes, he will give you proof before taking money. He is a wonderful man and he was the only person who actually gave me real results. I really hope he doesn't mind me advertising his contact on the internet but I'm sure any help/ extra work will benefit him.contact him as witchhealing@outlook.com He travel sometimes.i cant give out his number cos he told me he don’t want to be disturbed by many people across the world..he said his email is okay and he’ will replied to any emails asap,love marriage,finance, job promotion ,lottery Voodoo,poker voodoo,golf Voodoo,Law & Court case Spells,money voodoo,weigh loss voodoo,any sicknesses voodoo,Trouble in marriage,HIV AIDS,Barrenness(need a child),goodLuck voodoo,it's all he does Hope this helps everyone that is in a desperate situation as I once was; I know how it feels to hold onto something and never have a chance to move on because of the false promises and then to feel trapped in wanting something
