It's strawberry picking season, and what better way to honor all of your hard strawberry growing work (or strawberry picking work) than to quite literally whip up a little strawberry ice cream! We never use sugar here, in any recipes, so you can count on an all natural, farm- fresh, whole food recipe.
It starts with 3 cups of whole milk and one pound of fresh strawberries. If you don't have access to fresh strawberries, just use frozen.
In my early days of ice cream making, I really tried to be fancy. I tried custard style ice cream, boiling egg yolks and milk...it was awful. The ice cream always had a very eggy taste, like cooked eggs and cooked milk. Last year I adopted a simpler approach. Just blending whole milk and fruit, with a little confectioners Swerve. With a food processor, it all happens in 30 seconds.
At this point, you have a really yummy strawberry milk. You can stop here, but I think you should keep going for the sake of ice cream on the back porch tonight.
A Kitchenaid ice cream maker, is the easiest possible way to make ice cream. I am able to have it all wrapped up in 20 minutes. You will just pour your strawberry milk mixture into the ice cream maker while it's turning, and watch it do it's magic. Watch the kids fingers because they will try to lick the ice cream when it gets to the top. Not saying that's happened here. Not saying any adults have done that.
In the end, you have the best ever sugar free strawberry ice cream. It is out of this world. I like to put the finished ice cream in these cups. Often we are grabbing them out of the freezer and heading down to the pool. These paper cups offer quick clean up and many time kids don't finish the whole thing. They can easily write their name and stick it back in the freezer. This recipe fills 8 cups so invite your neighbors over for ice cream on the back porch.
Note: These are the exact cups from my Amazon orders. It comes in a pack of 40, which means I can make ice cream about 5 times before ordering more.
These cute gingham and polka dot paper toppers will be in our store soon!
