- 1 cup ripe blueberries, plus more for garnish
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup dark rum
- 1/2 vanilla bean, seeds scraped
- 1/4 cup whole milk
- 11 ounces premium vanilla ice cream (recommended: Haagen Dazs - make sure that it is really well frozen)
Combine the blueberries, sugar, rum and vanilla bean seeds in a bowl, let sit at room temperature for 10 minutes. Lightly mash the mixture with a fork and let sit 10 minutes longer.
Put the milk and the blueberry mixture in a blender and blend until smooth. Add the ice cream and blend until smooth. Divide between 2 tall glasses and serve with a straw. Garnish with a few blueberries.
