Homemade IceCream Recipes: Strawberry Ice Cream


Been busy making home ice cream with the Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker. Strawberry ice cream has been the choice of late.

Strawberry Ice Cream Ingredients:
3 cups of strawberries
2 eggs
2 cups of half and half
1 cup of whipping cream
1 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla

Recipe should work with any ice cream maker not just the ice-20 1.5 quart Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker. As with any recipe you make with an ice cream maker, make sure every ingredient is as cold as possible. For this recipe, strawberries are the key in that regard.

You can have store-bought frozen strawberries or get fresh strawberries and freeze them. But you will want a food processor or blender that can cut them up after they are taken out of the freezer. You might have to wait 5 minutes or so until your processor or blender can puree them. Leave the strawberries in a bowl.

Then get the 2 eggs out and whip them until they are a thin mixture. You will then be able to add the 2 cups of half and half, 1 cup of whipping cream, 1 teaspoon of vanilla and the 1 cup of sugar. Stir all of that together. Then it is time for the pureed strawberries.

All of that mixed together means it is time to get your ice cream maker churning. Add this mixture and your ice cream should be finished in 15-30 minutes. That will conclude your Strawberry Ice Cream recipe.

If your consistency is too 'soupy', this likely means your ingredients or ice cream maker bowl were not frozen enough. It's not the end of the world though, you can just put the ice cream in a container and after a few hours it will be frozen good.
