Eggless Strawberry icecream | No Icecream machine

Strawberries have started cropping up everywhere in the market and they are big, bright and juicy to look at. I have never missed picking a carton for the past three weeks. Moreover pappu is a big fan of strawberries, he likes munching them for snack and so its a must in the grocery list. Last week he was down with a mild cold attack and the strawberries were left untouched. I had a whole carton of them and I wanted to put the whole box into use.

I knew the solution was icecream. We have never been big fans of strawberry icecream, its always been chocolate and so I was a bit hesitant. However I am happy that I made this. The tartness seemed to cleanse the palate with every bite making us to want more. I am totally in love with making icecreams at home and am sure gonna try more flavors.


Prep time: 20 mins; Cooking time: Nil; Serves - 8-10
Adapted from here

~*What U Need*~
Sliced strawberries - 1 cup
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Whole milk - 1/2 cup
Heavy cream - 1 cup
Vanilla - 1 tsp

How I Made it:
In a bowl, add 2 tbsp sugar and strawberries. Give it a good sir and let it sit for 2 hours at room temperature. After 2 hours, puree 3/4 th of the strawberries with the syrup and using a fork mash the remaining strawberries. Add the remaining sugar to the milk and melt it in low heat. Cool to room temperature.

Whisk the cream to soft peaks. Mix the milk, strawberry puree and vanilla. Fold in the cream.

Pour into a freezer proof container and chill for one hour. After 1 hour, take the icecream and whisk to break all the crystals. Repeat procedure 3 times and then chill overnight.


Serve with some chocolate sauce!!!
