This strawberry ice cream recipe does not require any special equipment as it does not need to churn. It gets it’s creaminess from whipped evaporated milk and whipping cream. It is a big hit at our house so I make it every year when those luscious, sweet strawberries hit the market! It is exquisite and creamy and super easy to make.
There are 2 very important secrets for the absolute success of this dessert. The first one is your evaporated milk and cream must be very, very cold. So go ahead and place them in the freezer for a good 20 minutes before you start making this. If possible place your bowl in the freezer as well.
The second secret is you must be very patient when adding the pureed strawberries to the beaten milk. If you add them in a haste you will end up with a completely watery mess. So, be patient and have fun making this delicious dessert!
This is what you will need for this creamy and delicious strawberry ice cream recipe:
8 oz. (1 cup) of very, very cold evaporated milk
8 oz. (1 cup) of very, very cold heavy whipping cream
2 cups confectioner’s sugar
2 heaping cups of sliced strawberries
3/4 cups chopped strawberries
Put the strawberries in the blender and blend until liquid. Set aside.
Add the evaporated milk into a bowl. Using a beater, beat the milk on high speed until it doubles in volume. Slowly add a cup of confectioners sugar and continue beating until it triples in volume.
Very slowly add the pureed strawberries into the milk. When you are done your mixture should be relatively dense but not completely liquid. Place the bowl in the refrigerator.
In another bowl, beat the whipping cream until it forms soft peaks. Slowly add the rest of the sugar and beat until firm.
Very carefully fold the evaporated milk and strawberries into the beaten cream.Fold in the chopped strawberries.
Smooth out the top and cover with plastic wrap, placing the wrap directly onto the ice cream. Freeze overnight.
Take the ice cream out of the freezer 10 minutes before serving. Scoop it into bowls and serve with some grated chocolate and an extra strawberry. Enjoy!
