I bought a Kitchenaid Ice Cream maker attachment and this was my first recipe I made.
While I work out the recipe that works best for me, I will post the various versions here.
Homemade Fresh Raspberry Ice Cream
We loved this creamy delicious version.
Servings 8 1-cup servings
2 cups fresh raspberries
2 tablespoons sugar
3 cups heavy cream
1 1/4 cups sugar I only used almost 1 cup
1 1/2 cups whole milk (can use half-n-half) half-n-half
1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla
In a medium size bowl, add raspberries and the 2 tablespoons sugar. Stir and slightly smash a little and then set aside for about 15 minutes.
In a large bowl, mix the cream, 1 1/4 cups sugar, milk and vanilla. Stir until sugar is dissolved.
Take raspberries and slightly mash with a fork. Add to milk mixture. Put in fridge for about 30 minutes to chill.
Pour into canister of ice cream freezer and freeze according to manufacturer's directions.
These ingredients are a good size for the two of us.
This mixed berry ice cream is simple, easy, and refreshingly delicious!
From: Chew Out Loud
Recipe type: dessert
2 cups fresh or frozen mixture of berries, stemmed (sliced, if needed)
1 cup sugar as usual I reduced this a little
1 cup whole milk
2 cups heavy cream
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
If you're only using fresh strawberries, slice them and stir with ¼ cup of the given sugar, allowing to sit and macerate for 2 hours. Other berries do not need macerating. If your mixed berries are frozen, it's best to leave them frozen.
In a bowl, whisk together the milk and sugar until sugar is dissolved.
Stir in heavy cream and vanilla, and whisk to combine well.
Turn ice cream make on and pour milk/cream mixture in. Follow directions on your ice cream maker for churning; generally about 25-30 minutes.
During last 5-10 minutes of churning, add the berries (including juices from macerating, if any.) I did this and the ice cream maker was not happy with the frozen berries plus they remain frozen in the finished product.
I did it again with frozen berries but I let them defrost before I added them.
Ice cream may be soft and need to firm up in freezer for 2-3 hours before serving.
