ice cream series: strawberry

I’m just going to go ahead and toot my own horn for a sec — this strawberry ice cream is amazing. I highly recommend that you make it immediately. It is the first flavour that I have made twice, and it worked both times with the perfect soft texture.

You will need:
1 cup of chopped strawberries
1/2 cup of sugar
small squeeze of lemon
4 tablespoons of honey
3 tablespoons of skimmed milk
2 cups of cream

Put the strawberries and sugar in a small pan, heat and stir until it makes a syrup and all the sugar has dissolved. Add the small squeeze of lemon. Using a hand blender blitz the syrup until it is smooth in a fresh container. Be careful because it will be super hot and try to splatter everywhere.
Allow the mixture to cool a bit, and add the honey. Put the cream and skimmed milk in a large bowl, and add your strawberry syrup. Mix thoroughly. I love the dusky colour that this goes, rather than bubblegum pink like so many store-bought strawberry flavours.
Chill your mixture, then churn according to the instructions on your ice cream machine. I actually think this one would work quite well without a churner, perhaps whip the cream a bit to compensate.

Serve this by itself or with a few fresh strawberries. Nom nom.

  1. drooling over here! I’m not a huge fan of the artificial strawberry taste but I am a huge fan of fresh strawberries so I imagine this would be delicious x 1000

    • It makes such a difference having the fresh strawberry taste – this recipe would probably work with most soft berries to get a fresher flavour.
