Blueberry-Lemon Sour Cream Ice Cream

There are two main types of American ice cream: custard (aka French-style) and uncooked (aka Philadelphia-style or eggless). This easy uncooked ice cream has a lighter texture than custard varieties, but it's still bursting with berry flavor. Prep Time: 10 minutes, plus freezing time. Notes: As with all noncustard ice creams, this mixture freezes solid after a day in the freezer. Let it soften for 10 minutes at room temperature before serving.
