Easy GF Strawberry Ice Cream
As part of our Mommy-Summer-Camp plan, I promised my daughter lots of cooking, food prep and experimenting in the kitchen. She's 9 and is a serious foodie, so we want to encourage that.
Also, given that eating gluten free is keeping her migraines in check... I want her to see how much great food can be made and enjoyed fresh and without gluten.
So we broke out the Kitchenaid Stand Mixer and the ice cream bowl that has been quietly and patiently waiting in the freezer for it's chance to make some magic!
I like things to be simple - the simpler the better - so 5 ingredients and straight forward preparation makes me happy.
5 Ingredient Strawberry Ice Cream
In a large bowl we combined the milk, cream, sugar, salt, and strawberries.
Stirred the sugar into the heavy cream about 30 minutes before so the the sugar can dissolve. And, we ran the strawberries through our Magic Bullet to prevent chunks in the ice cream(my daughter likes smooth ice cream).
Then she poured the mixture into the freezer bowl of the Kitchenaid. And licked all the bowls and spatula.
The machine mixed for 20-25 minutes while we went out to play in the yard.
When it was finished we scooped it out into a dish to freeze and again licked the spoons, etc. It's amazing that we got as much ice cream into the freezer as we did!
Froze it for about 5 hours and had it for dessert - perfect and creamy with just the right amount of sweet!
There is still some left for tomorrow (unless my husband goes back in late tonight!)
