Black Raspberry Ice Cream Ingredients
Black Raspberries – These delicious sweet berries can be hard to find! Usually they are available in grocery stores in the U.S in July, or you can get them from local farms.
If you have frozen black raspberries they will work too. Just thaw them first.
Egg Yolks – These create the base for our ice cream custard. We’ll gently heat the egg yolks to pasteurize them, but you can also purchase pasteurized eggs if you prefer.
Granulated Sugar – For sweetness and texture, plain, white, granulated sugar is the perfect choice.
Whole Milk – The first of our dairy items adds bulk and aids in getting the perfect creamy texture.
Heavy Cream – A mix of both heavy cream and whole milk is what gives us the perfect creamy texture.
Kosher Salt – A bit of salt enhances the flavor of the berries and vanilla.
Vanilla Extract – a nice, high quality pure vanilla extract will give tons of warm vanilla flavor that pairs beautifully with raspberries.

How to Make Black Raspberry Ice Cream from scratch
- Add the black raspberries to a food processor and blend until smooth. Strain the seeds out of the black raspberries with a sieve, pressing down with the back of a spatula or spoon to press out as much juice as possible. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and granulated sugar until smooth and pale yellow in color.
- Add the milk to a saucepan over medium heat. Bring milk to a simmer and then remove from heat. Be sure not to boil. Add about ½ cup of the hot milk to the egg and sugar mixture and whisk constantly until combined.
- Then, add the tempered egg mixture back into the saucepan with the remaining hot milk. Heat the saucepan on low. Stirring constantly, heat until the base has thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon. Strain the mixture into a bowl to remove any pieces of egg that may have cooked.
- Add the heavy cream, salt, and vanilla extract and stir to combine.
- Add in the black raspberry puree and stir until incorporated. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap making sure that the plastic wrap is touching the surface of the ice cream base. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours, or until cold.
- Churn the ice cream mixture in the bowl of your ice cream machine according to your manufacturer’s instructions until it is thick and the consistency of soft-serve ice cream.
- Spoon the ice cream into a shallow container or loaf pan. Press plastic wrap or wax paper to the surface of the ice cream. Freeze for at least 4 hours or until solid. Let sit at room temperature for about 5 minutes before serving.

Tips for making this Black Raspberry Ice Cream
Use quality ingredients – When making homemade ice cream, you’ll want to make sure you are using high quality ingredients for the best outcome.
Chill out – If possible, always start with chilled ingredients. This is important for homemade no-churn ice cream recipes and ice cream maker recipes.
Don’t skimp on the fat – High fat milks and creams are essential when making homemade ice cream. Opting for a low-fat option often leads to icy ice creams and inconsistency in the texture.
Don’t go crazy with the add-ins – If you’re adding in additional ingredients, pick one or two and make sure they are chopped into pieces no larger than a blueberry or pea.
Don’t skimp on the sugar – Sugar not only adds sweetness to homemade ice creams, it also helps with the texture. Sugar is essential for the creamy texture in ice cream.
Add some chocolate – If you wanted to add some chocolate to this recipe, I’d recommend adding ½ cup of dark chocolate chunks during the final two minutes of churn. Black raspberries and dark chocolate are such a great flavor combination!
Don’t worry about seeds or chunks – Your raspberry puree might not be entirely smooth, and that’s completely fine.
No churn Black Raspberry Ice Cream
To make this black raspberry ice cream without an ice cream maker, chill a shallow container or a loaf pan in the freezer while you mix the ice cream ingredients.
Pour the ice cream mixture into the prepared pan and freeze for 3-4 hours. Stir the ice cream every 30 minutes for the first 2 hours to help add air. This will help create a creamy, smooth texture.
Black Raspberry Ice Cream Add-ins
This smooth black raspberry ice cream is pretty perfect just the way it is, but if you’re a fan of ice cream add-ins, try these:
- Shaved white chocolate or white chocolate chips
- Dark chocolate chips, chunks, or shavings
- Pieces of vanilla flavored cookies, prepared cheesecake, or pound cake.
