Strawberries and chocolate ice cream
This very nice strawberry ice cream recipe contains pieces of strawberry ... and chocolate. The result is delicious!
  • About 500 gram (1 pint; or about 24 medium-sized) strawberries
  • About 2 tablespoons of lemon juice (about ½ lemon's worth)
  • 225 ml (slightly less than 1 cup) caster sugar
  • 100 ml (0.4 cup) whole milk
  • 500 ml (about 2.1 cups) cream
  • 1 teaspoon genuine vanilla extract
  • About 50 gram good-quality dark chocolate
  1. Stem and slice the strawberries in thin slices. Cut these slices into finer pieces still.
  2. Add 100 ml (0.4 cup) of the sugar and the lemon juice to the strawberries and leave to macerate for about 2 hours.
  3. Once the maceration-period is over, and without mashing the strawberries, drain the liquid from the strawberries. Set aside the strawberries, and the drained juice for now.
  4. Mix the dairy, the vanilla, and the remaining sugar.
  5. Add the drained strawberry juice to the dairy-mix and churn in your ice cream machine.
  6. When the ice cream has firmed up and is close to the finish, add the (drained) strawberry pieces.
  7. Churn until finished.
  8. Fill up a freezer-safe container with about half of the ice cream.
  9. Melt the chocolate (I simply used the microwave, but any method that works is OK) and drizzle over half of it over the ice cream.
  10. Cover up with the remaning ice cream and drizzle over the remaniing chocolate.
  11. Let firm up in the freezer before serving, unless you are a great fan of soft-serve!
