Strawberry Ice Cream [Recipes]

So, interested in making something really good, reeeelatively healthy* and easy to "cook" to boot? This recipe comes from an allrecipes entry that I found, usually ice creams may contain eggs, sort of like a really, really goopy frozen custard, it gives it nice unctuousness, but you know what? sometimes there aren't any eggs in the fridge, so one goes and looks for an egg-less recipe. And the convenience of not even having to fire up the stove, make the quasi-custard and then waiting for it to cool down before churning is definitely a plus.

The recipe

  • 2 c. whole milk
  • 2 c. heavy cream
  • 2 1/2 c. frozen strawberries
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt

And the procedure couldn't be more simple; blend everything in a blender then follow your ice cream maker's instructions. If, however, not everything fits in the blender, leave the cream out and mix with the rest after it's all blended.

*Ok, define healthy, at least on this ice cream you could pronounce all of the ingredients, on the store-bough not-so-much.
