Eggless Strawberry Ice-cream

I am usually surprised when someone shows no preference for strawberries over other fruits. My little girl loves fruits like papaya, banana and grapes and is not fond of strawberries. I just don't believe it, how mother and daughter can have such varying preferences... About the picture above, we found a huge strawberry in the box we purchased last month and I took this picture to show the size comparison. The strawberry was as big as the Fiji apple in length. This is the largest one I have seen.

Speaking of preferences, my daughter does love strawberry flavoured milk and ice-cream. So I decided to make this icecream for her one day. This has no eggs or gelatin and requires some simple ingredients.

Milk cream - 600 ml
Milk - 150 ml
Strawberry crush - 1 cup (I used Monin's)


Heat the cream and milk until they come to a boil. Allow the milk and cream mix to cook down completely and then add the strawberry crush, using the hand mixer, blend the mixture well. The strawberry crush has sugar and so I did not add any sugar to this mixture.

Pour into freezer safe box and allow it to freeze for an hour. Take the box out and whip the ice-cream for about 3-4 minutes. You can see soft peaks form. Put the mix back in the freezer for an hour or so. Whip the ice-cream once again for 2-3 minutes. Allow to freeze for 4-5 hours and scoop and serve.
Verdict: Simple ingredients and extremely easy to prepare. The only time consuming part is the whipping of the ice-cream before it sets and forms icicles. If that happens, thaw the ice-cream about half-way and then whip it for 5 minutes or so until soft peaks form. Then whip every hour for a couple of more times before letting it set.
