This is one of my favorite recipes! It reminds me of the scoop of homemade ice cream I used to get from my favorite cafe back when I lived in Chicago. Ever since I found this recipe I've been trying different flavors. So far peach and apple are my favorites (if you try apple you need to up the cream or it will be grainy). Some people mentioned that it doesn't freeze very well but I've also noticed that these are the same people that are substituting other dairy products for the cream. Don't! Cream freezes differently and anything other than cream will give you those ice crystals. If you want it creamier just add more cream. I usually add 3/4 to 1 cup cream per 10 ounces frozen fruit. (you have to use frozen fruit for this to work!) Different fruits will give different consistencies so it's all about experimenting. Also, I can't see this working with a blender as it would take too long to get everything to mix and ruin the texture. If you get a milkshake or smoothie consistency you've done something
Holy cow! Is this GOOD! I doubled it, knowing that other reviewers had said that it makes such a small amount. We LOVE ice cream in this house and this is better than anything I've bought in the last ten years. Really creamy and rich tasting. I've made strawberry this time, but I plan on experimenting with fresh nectarines and peaches next. EDITED 06/12/08: I've made this with mandarin oranges AND bananas. Not quite as good as the strawberry. The mandarin oranges were drained really well, but still made this ice cream more "ice-crystal-ly." The banana was a more subtle flavor, and you really didn't need a whole lot of sugar with the bananas. I think I might try fresh nectarines next, then move back to berries. The whole family is still raving about the strawberry. EDITED 06/21/08: I made a triple batch of this today with blackberry, blueberry and strawberry. Delicious! EDITED YET AGAIN: I have now made this with FF half-n-half and half the amount of sweetener only using Splenda and still have it come ou
I'd give this a 10 if I could. My husband didn't believe I made this. It was soooo good! I only used 1/4 c sugar with raspberries. It was delicious. He was still talking about it this morning!
Oh Happy Day! This is wonderful! I placed it in the freezer and had a hard time waiting for it to firm up, since I kept taking a taste here, a taste there. Gotta make sure it's good before I offer it up to guests, right?! I wanted to share that I used nonfat plain yogurt in place of the heavy cream (and also added a splash of vanilla)and saved a lot of calories as a result. Think I'll reduce the amount of sugar next time to see how that comes out. Wonderful recipe; thank you so much for posting it!

I was kind of having a sweet treat moment and needed to use up some heavy cream, so I made this recipe to go into Five Minute Ice Cream which is also from this site. I took JAE12349's advice and used all brown sugar, used milk instead of water and added a little salt. I took my 1/2 tsp. measuring spoon and made little balls and set them in a baking dish and froze until firm. Sticky little buggers. I haven't tried it yet but it seems to look okay. Once I have a chance to try it and take pics of a firmer ice cream, I'll take pics and change my review on how it was in ice cream. As is, it's okay with minor changes.
Yummy pink strawberry ice cream is a fun treat to make on a snowy day. It only needs 3 ingredients, so kids can have fun making their own.
