Get ready for this combo guys…the creamiest Black Raspberry Ice Cream, swirled with tons of delicious chocolatey Oreos! It is the perfect homemade ice cream for summer!
Eric and I are obsessed with this ice cream shop in Sacramento called Gunther’s. (If you’re ever in the area you HAVE to stop by. They’ve been open for 70 years!) We will take any excuse to go, especially if we have friends visiting from out of town.
Every month they have a special flavor. It’s always something creative and new, but not in a gross way. No asparagus ice cream or corn ice cream or weirdo-flavors here folks. (Although I actually would love to try corn ice cream someday!)
Only flavor combos that make your knees go weak will do, like Cinna-Man (Cinnamon ice cream with Gingerbread Swirl, my personal favorite that you will see a replica of on the blog someday) or Caramel Crackle Crunch, or Blueberry Cheesecake, or Strawberry Nutella, or Horchata. See what I mean? These guys know what they’re doing.
We had some friends from out of town come to visit, so naturally we headed to Gunther’s, and noticed that the flavor of the month was Black Raspberry Ice Cream with Oreos. I was a little suspicious since fruity ice cream is not usually my favorite, and ordered my usual Mint Oreo (with fudge on top).
But Eric ordered a cone. We sat down to eat after having waited in the long line that goes out the door, and as soon as we tasted it, we looked at each other and said “this is not enough.” So Eric stood up and got immediately back in the long line and ordered an entire half gallon of the stuff. I ate it with a spoon all the way home, yes, even though I had just finished my other scoop. I was OBSESSED.
How to make Black Raspberry Ice Cream
Several gallons of Black Raspberry Ice Cream testing later, I finally have this recipe the way I want it! Have you ever had a Black Raspberry? That was my first line of research. I’ve never had one (or even seen them in stores, have you?) but I read that they are not exactly like a raspberry and not exactly like a blackberry. I decided to use Black Raspberry jam instead of trying to get my hands on fresh berries.
I did test this with blackberry jam too, which is not as tart as black raspberry. If you don’t feel like searching for black raspberry jam, you should try a mix of half raspberry and half blackberry.
I am an unabashed Oreo fanatic. Cookies and Cream ice cream never has enough Oreos for my taste. I’m always the jerk who’s making giant craters in the side of the ice cream bucket to get to the big Oreo chunks. THIS recipe does not skimp. You can add as many as you like. Full disclosure, the recipe calls for 20-25 Oreos…but I actually added 30. 30 may have been a bit much, even for me 🙂 Add according to your taste. I believe there are 39 Oreos in a regular size package, just fyi.
School starts for us this week so summer is officially over! My little Truman starts kindergarten on Thursday! I can’t believe it. My kids already stop me several times a day to ask me to add to their Christmas lists, so I guess they are over summer too. Bring on the fall baking!!
P.S. Some of Truman’s Christmas list additions include a walking cane, as well as nunchucks. Also coal, “for a snowman’s mouth.” We live in sunny California where it does not snow. He also wants a strawberry huller. I think he’s going to be “that kid” in his kindergarten class, haha!!
