  1. Finely grate the zest from one of the limes and squeeze the juice from both. Put in a small pan with the sugar and heat gently, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Add the blueberries and simmer for 2 minutes, just until the skins start to split.

  2. Pour the blueberry mixture into a bowl and stir in the coconut cream. Leave to cool. Whip the cream in a large bowl until it just holds its shape, then gradually stir in the blueberry mixture. Put the bowl in the freezer for about 1 hour, until the mixture is set about 3cm in from the edges.

  3. Remove from the freezer and mix it all together using a whisk. When it’s fairly smooth, return to the freezer for a further hour, then repeat the whisking one more time. Transfer the ice cream to a rigid container, cover and freeze until firm, or for up to a month. Before serving,move to the fridge for 30 minutes to soften it. Serve with extra blueberries scattered over.

This was my first go at making ice cream using an ice cream maker. It turned out brilliantly. The texture was smooth and creamy, and the combination of flavours worked so well. The tangy blueberries and hint of zesty lime is balanced with subtle coconut flavour. The natural colour of the blueberries made it look even more appealing. Served this with leftover blueberries. Will definitely be making this again very soon!

My coconut cream in the ice cream maker went into tiny balls, why was this? The ice cream tastes great mixed in with the cream and blueberry mix ok, just seemed to separate into these little tiny balls when in the ice cream machine. Appreciate comments please.
