Real strawberry ice-cream {no ice-cream maker needed}

Fresh Strawberry Icecream (6)

In my world, ice-cream is the answer to everything.

Hot? Ice-cream.
Cold? Ice-cream.
Tired? Ice-cream.
Sad? Ice-cream.
Bored? Ice-cream.
Don’t know how you feel or what you feel like eating? Ice-cream.

This ice-cream has changed my answer from just ice-cream, to this strawberry ice-cream.

Hot? This strawberry ice-cream.
Cold? This strawberry ice-cream.
Tired? …

Ok, you’ve got the idea. This ice-cream is the answer to EVERYTHING.

If I had to choose only one ice-cream to eat for the rest of my life? This would be it.

Now I’ve written ice-cream so many times that it has kind of lost meaning. I’m going to eat some ice-cream.

Although it doesn’t require an ice-cream maker, it does require a little forward planning (pre-frozen strawberries) but if you are desperate for this deliciousness (I hear ya!) any frozen berries could be substituted.

{TIP: In summer when strawberries are cheap as chips I always stock up, slice them up, lay them on a tray and freeze them for occasions such as this.}

Frozen strawberries

Add the strawberries (or other berries) to a food processor or blender.

Add a little icing sugar

Pour in the cream and milk. Or just cream if you’re feeling rebellious.

Whizz it up. (You may need to give it a little stir around part way through blitzing to get all the berries crushed.)

Done.

Yep, it’s that easy. And delicious.

It will be the consistency of soft-serve so if you like soft ice-cream eat it now. But if you like harder ice-cream you can freeze it for a few hours or overnight. But I dare you to not eat it straight away.
