I never thought I would say this but "Maaan! Is Ice Cream delicious or what?" Well, I am no connoisseur when it comes to these frozen goodies but I have liked the ones I have made till now and couple other store bought ones. The Cheesecake Icecream was sublime and this ice cream made with fresh strawberries in the peak of its season was extremely addictive. Ever since I was gifted the ice cream maker, I have been trying the recipes from the booklet one by one to extremely satisfying results. This is the second one I tried and we loved it immensely.

The summer is at its peak and it has been very hot in my side of the world. So hot that even if I move an inch I start sweating. I have never been a fan of summer. It makes me irritable. I spent my growing up years in the humid and hot climate of Southern India and lamented my way through it. Marriage moved me to a new country and a new place where the climate was such that it made me feel as if I had reached heaven.It rained almost the whole year and I scoffed at those who told me I would be depressed cos of all the gloominess thanks to the overcast skies. I had a gala time there and still miss that place. Though the current climate is not close to the ones of the blazing India, I find it uncomfortably close and hence ice cream is my only respite.

Changes I Made: This recipe if from the ice cream maker I bought. The intention was not really to make any changes but due to the fact that I carry only 2% milk with me, I used that to substitute the Whole Milk. I am sure that using full fat milk will make it even creamier and rich tasting than it was but frankly, I did not miss it. The ice cream was bursting with flavor of fresh strawberries. Its the season and I love the beautiful ripe ones that's decorating the aisles of Farmers market. Use the best berries to get the best flavor since that's what this ice cream is all about :)

Basic Information
Prep Time: 2 to 4 hours
Serves: 8+ people
Yield: About 5 cups ( ten 1/2-cup servings)
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh Strawberries, hulled (see tips)
  • 3/4 cup 2% Milk
  • 2/3 cup granulated Sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups Heavy Cream
  • 1-1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • pinch of salt
  • Frozen strawberries may be substituted for the fresh.
  • If you do not have an ice cream maker, then please refer this post on how to make this without it.
Pulse the strawberries in a food processor until rough/finely chopped. I like the its and bits of strawberries in my icecream hence I simply chopped them roughly on my chopping board. How you chop (fine or coarse) depends on your preference. Reserve in a bowl.

If you are wondering about the additional spoon in the picture, that was the guy in the house who was *generously helping me* to test whether the ice cream has come out well! *Sheesh* where does he disappear when it comes to dishes and other chores in the house is a mystery unsolved!

Since no additives are added, the consistency will be softer than the store bought ones. Hence additional refrigeration is required for a firmer consistency.

I froze it for another 2 hours and this is how it was after that. If you are wondering about why there is ridge in one end...errr...well that's me who kept scraping of the edges for tasting in the 2 hours it was freezing. I am sorry for the immaturity - but man! Was that ice cream DELICIOUS!

  1. Tried this recipe today. I had to have some after 2 hours in the freezer so it wasn’t quite hard yet but it was delicious!

    I think next time (which will come quickly I’m sure) I may purée a few berries and do the rest the fresh chop. If anyone’s done that let me know.

    Thanks for a great recipe- this is a keeper!

    Just under the ingredient list above is a section called “Tips” which has the words ” refer this post” in a different colour. If you click on those words you are directed to an ice cream using the “freezer” method of ice cream making. You can use that method with this recipe. Another alternative if you only have a refrigerator without a freezer section is : making ice cream using a big bucket packed with salt and ice, with a smaller bucket inside it filled with the ice cream mixture. The salted ice creates a low temperature environment, and then the ice cream mixture is stirred constantly with a large flat wooden spoon or wide wooden spatula. Wooden utensils are better to use in this case because plastic can break from the cold or when the ice cream gets thick and heavy. It uses a lot of muscles to keep constantly stirring it, till it freezes properly & sets. Be careful not to have the salted ice too high up the sides ,around the inner bucket because you do not want salty water to get into the ice cream. On the same principle you can use 1 large & 1 medium ,well sealed metal containers such as different sized coffee cans. You place some ice cream mixture in the smaller can making sure you leave space for the mixture to swell [so maybe only fill 2/3rds of the can or a little less] , make sure the lid is on securely , you may like to duct tape it in place. Then you put this can inside a larger can that is filled with ice & salt. Secure the lid on the larger can & roll over and over to mimic the stirring /churning , check on the inner can after 30min-45min to see if the ice cream has set. I have never used the can method. My mother used the 2 bucket method when I was a child and I am more familiar with it.

    Thanks Anney for the reply and the other generous inputs. –DK

    Oh, don’t worry about my comment. I just wanted to mention b’coz you always put up such flawless pictures here. And I like the pictures since we see the ice cream melting a bit. That makes me drool over all the more. You are doing a wonderful job with posting recipes and wow photos through your site. I can never imagine myself doing it with my work, home and a 3 yr old. Wonder how you manage and take out time to keep this site going.

    I welcome constructive criticism/feedback hence I appreciate your comment Patcy :) It does get hard at times to keep this site running. But this constant passion for sharing what I love (in this case- food) and wonderful readers like you to encourage my attempts gives me the fuel and motivation to keep this running :) . So Thank YOU :)

  25. heyy, i dont have an Ice cream maker…i referred to ur earlier post of Mango coconut ice cream….but have a doubt…does it mean I have to use Eggs if not using an Ice cream maker?? plzz clarify!! thanks for the wonderful recipe!!

    No you dont have to. Just follow the steps 18 and 19. All you have to do is to freeze the mixture. Take it out in 2-3 hours. When half frozen, take it out and beat it well until smooth. Freeze again. Do it about 3 times

    The ice-cream looks heavenly. I want a scoop of it right now. You should have avoided the 2 whole wilted strawberries in the pictures as they do not look fresh

    You are right. Though they were still fresh, the leaves on top do look kinda sad. I was in a hurry to take the pic (it was melting, the kid was bawling, the husband was hungry and ..yeah..more blahs) so guess did not notice. Oh well – next time :)

  27. Looks so yummy. Tempting me to buy an icecream maker :)

  28. looks like that strawberry ripple we buy at the stores..looks heavenly..
