My Recipe Box - Ice Cream

April 2018 - Toronto ON


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.

These ingredients are a good size for the two of us.

VERY BERRY ICE CREAM


This mixed berry ice cream is simple, easy, and refreshingly delicious!
From: Chew Out Loud
Recipe type: dessert
Serves: 10-12
INGREDIENTS
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

DIRECTIONS
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.
