Red White and Blue, Berry Ice Cream

I'm still on the 4th of July theme and all the wonderful fresh berries that are in season, so wanted to try a berry ice cream.  I kept the berries in pieces instead of pureeing because I wanted to retain some white in the ice cream for the "white" in red white and blue.  This came nice this way, with frozen chunks of fruit.  I bet it would taste great too if you pureed the fruit.  This is a refreshing ice cream, chock full of fruit.
1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup 1/2 and 1/2
3/4 cup whipping cream
3 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups mixed red and blue fresh berries - I used blueberries cut in 1/2, strawberries cut into small chunks, and raspberries cut in 1/2
Whisk together 1st 4 ingredients in a medium bowl.  Then toss in the berries.  Transfer mixture to a 9 X 5 loaf pan lined with aluminum foil and cover with aluminum foil.  Freeze at least over night until completely frozen.  Every few hours turn the mixture with a fork or spoon to help it evenly freeze.
