Eggless Strawberry Ice Cream

Making ice cream at home is time consuming. But results are worth. I always wanted to make ice cream at home but always procrastinated with some excuses. Finally few weeks back opened my ice cream maker and made this yummy ice cream. But as usual I got busy with work and did not get a chance to blog. Today finally spared some time to blog about this yummy recipe.

Here is the recipe adopted from Cuisinart recipe booklet. (Original recipe calls for heavy cream. I used
whole milk instead of heavy cream)

3 cups of fresh strawberries
4 tbsp lemon juice
1 1/2 cups of sugar
3 cups of whole milk
1 tsp vanilla extract 

In a small sauce pan combine sliced strawberries, lemon juice and half cup sugar and cook on medium heat for 5 to 6 mts till strawberries are soft and sugar is melted. Let the strawberries sit and macerate in juices for 2 hours. Puree the berries along with juices in a blender.

In a small pan combine milk and sugar and cook on medium heat stirring constantly till milk starts to boil. Remove from heat and let it sit till it reaches room temperature.
Once Milk and Strawberry puree comes to room temperature keep it in refrigerator to chill for 2 hours.
Now as per your ice cream maker instructions prepare the freezer bowl.
Combine milk, strawberry puree and vanilla extract and pour in the freezer bowl and turn the machine on till the mixture is thick. My ice cream maker took 20 - 25 mts to thicken the mixture. The ice cream will have soft and creamy texture.  If you want firmer consistency keep it in air tight container and place in freezer for few hours. Remove from freezer and serve.
