Baked Blueberry & Lime ice cream

Raise your hands if you are suffering from this unbelievable heat wave. You might not fancy the idea to turn on the oven, yet to make this ice cream,  that is a true reward and going to comfort and cool you down, there is no way around. I often brag about baking bluberries - but hey it indeed does make a big difference and opens a new dimension, especially if you add some spices like cinnamon, clove or even a mixture. Just a tiny pinch, really.
