One of my summer jobs in high school was working as an ice cream scooper at a local ice cream shop. The place is a local favorite, so on hot days, we would often have lines out the door of customers wanting scoops of Michigan-made ice cream. Even though it was a busy, sticky job, I have a soft spot in my heart for ice cream on a cone in the summertime. Today I am sharing how to make your own strawberry and cream ice cream without a bulky ice cream maker!Jump to Recipe
STRAWBERRY AND CREAM ICE CREAM–NO ICE CREAM MAKER NEEDED
HOW TO MAKE NO-CHURN ICE CREAM
I was so geeked last year when I discovered that you can make homemade ice cream without a big bulky ice cream machine. This recipe has a similar base as my friend Viv’s margarita ice cream recipe, (which you MUST try), and just requires the means to whip heavy cream. I used a stand mixer, but you can also a handheld mixer or a whisk if you have triceps of steel. Beyond that, it’s just a matter of adding in ingredients to flavor your ice cream to your liking.
STRAWBERRIES AND CREAM ICE CREAM RECIPE
This no churn strawberry ice cream recipe allows you to make your own delicious icy dessert for a hot summer’s day. My recipe calls for heavy whipping cream, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, and fresh summer berries.
You can adapt this recipe by customizing the ingredients that you fold in in Step 3. Add in some strawberry puree or strawberry jam to up the strawberry flavor. Add in some chocolate chunks. Make it a mixed berry ice cream by adding in blackberries and blueberries.
Once you know the basics of this homemade strawberry ice cream recipe, you will want to start experimenting with new flavors — all without an ice cream maker!
