Homemade Strawberry Ice-cream and Strawberry Fritters

Home made strawberry ice cream

 As you know I love strawberry season and the strawberries just keep coming and the days have been getting warmer – I love it when we get a proper summer in Ireland. What better way to cool down in this gorgeous sunshine than with ice-cream and what nicer ice-cream than strawberry, which is my favourite.
 And if you want to make it a truly decadent dessert add some Strawberry and Chocolate Fritters and your family will love you.

Strawberry Icecream

Home-made Strawberry Ice-cream


Ingredients
 1 carton of double cream
 1 tin of evaporated milk
 1/2 cup of sugar or honey ( honey will alter the flavour slightly but is more natural )
  Strawberries I used a small cartons worth I would say.
 1/2 tsp Vanilla Essence
Strawberries

The How to Bit

  1. Chop up your strawberries.
  2. Whip up your double cream until it is in soft peaks then slowly add your evaporated milk and vanilla essence
  3. Add your sugar and 3/4 of your strawberries and whip until it turns light pink – if you want it pinker you could add food colouring but I was trying to keep it natural as possible.
  4. Finally stir in the remaining 1/4 of your strawberries and mix through so you have strawberry chucks through your ice-cream.
  5. Place in a freezer container and put in the freezer.
  6. After a couple of hours remove and mix again if you are worried about ice-crystals but this made a very smooth, creamy Ice-cream for me.
Easy Peasy Lemon Squeasy as my Dad is fond of saying 🙂
