A few days later I went to a local food distribution program and got all this heavy cream as part of a package deal.
So I decided to give the ice cream recipe a whirl!
I hauled out my trusty food processor (thank you swagbucks for helping me purchase this awesome kitchen tool!)
I adapted This recipe a bit to make it easier for me and accommodate what I had available.
10 minute Strawberry Ice cream
Here is the Printable recipe
4 cups frozen Strawberries, sliced, halved or quartered
1/2 - 3/4 cup of white sugar (adjust to your personal taste)
1/2 pint heavy cream (the cute tiny container)
Add strawberries to your food processor.
Pour sugar over the berries.
Pulse until the sugar and berries are mixed well and crushed pretty fine.
Slowly add in cream through the opening in the food processor.
This part can get a bit frustrating if your processor is a smaller model like mine (it's and 8 cup vs. 12) but if you take off the top and carefully move things around a bit with a wooden spoon (if you use a spatula you may cut it on the blade and if you use a spoon you could damage your blade) you will be all set. Turn on again and let it run until everything comes together. It will look all nice and slushy.
|This is what it looked like served right away|
After serving this your family will definitely think you are the awesomest (yes it's a word, well today it is anyway) person in the whole universe!
If you find that you are getting lots of ice crystals next time stir your freezer mixture every 1/2 hour for a couple hours. It will help break them up.
