Fresh Home Made Strawberry Ice Cream Recipe

When I walked into Lidl and spotted their ice-cream maker, I did think about it.  I’ve had ones before that people have given me as presents, but usually such a faff to use that I end up just passing them off to other people.  This one was electric and after the huge success I had with their slow cooker, it wasn’t such a thought to buy another machine from them.

The bowl should go into the freezer for 24 hours before, but I got away with putting mine in the freezer and putting on the super freeze function.  It says to put the mix when made up into the fridge for 4 hours too, but if all the ingredients come straight from the fridge, I don’t see the need to do that apart from keeping it to have the ice cream completely freshly made for an evening meal.

If you do buy one, don’t do what I did and put your ice cream back in the freezer while it’s still in the machine bowl, or if you do, use a soft scraper for the sides as I put mine in our freezer and scraped the side of mine with the ice cream scoop.  I used a three yolk mix but it was too much.  The 2 yolk mix is definitely enough for the 1 litre tub the maker comes with.

It was delicious and absolutely zero nasties or unpronouncable ingredients in it.

This recipe is adapted from the Silvercrest Ice Cream Maker Recipe Handbook.

Ingredients

  • 2 Egg yolks
  • 7fl oz Low Fat Milk (I used semi-skimmed.)
  • 7fl oz Whipping Cream (I used double cream and whipped it.)
  • 1.5oz Icing Sugar
  • 300gg Strawberries

Method

Step 1. Strawberry Ice Cream
The egg yolk and icing sugar needs to be mixed together. Don't be temped to use a balloon whisk as the egg yolk will stick to it. The mixture will be bright yellow when it is properly beaten together.
Step 2. Strawberry Ice Cream3
Add the cold milk to the egg and icing sugar and mix it together. It will look like a buttermilk mix when it's done.
Step 3. Strawberry Ice Cream7
Whip the cream until it forms stiff peaks and add it to the egg yolk and icing sugar mix. It took so long to mix to smooth for me, that I put it through a sieve to finish it off.
Step 4. Strawberry Ice Cream6
Puree the strawberries and stir it in until it looks evenly mixed.
Step 5. Strawberry Ice Cream8
Save the mix until about 45 minutes before you want to serve it, or use the ice cream maker to pre-make it and then freeze for later. It will take approximately 40 minutes for the ice cream to be ready and then it is simply serve, or freeze for later.

    Homemade ice cream is the best! I usually serve mine right away out of the ice cream bowl, or if I’m not serving it right away I transfer it to a plastic tub to harden further in the freezer. I’ve never made ice cream using icing sugar before, I’ll have to try your recipe out and see what it’s like! :)
