1 cup orange juice
3/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup cold water
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

In a cup or small bowl, mix together the cornstarch and 1/4 cup cold water. Gently stir the cornstarch mixture into the blueberries so as not to mash the berries. Simmer gently until thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the almond extract and cinnamon. Thin sauce with water if it is too thick for your liking.

Blend until smooth, making sure that you stop to scrape the sides from time to time. 2. Put in an airtight container and place in the freezer until frozen solid. 3. When you're ready to enjoy, pull out the container about 5 minutes before scooping, to ensure it softens slightly. 4. Enjoy!
