Fresh Strawberry Ice Cream

Fresh Strawberry Ice Cream

Warm weather is here, and fresh strawberries are at their very finest. So of course it’s time to add them to ice cream.

You may have read about Ben and Jerry’s and their new nondairy ice creams. I do applaud them for responding with new alternatives to dairy, but no matter how many new flavors hit our local stores, to me, nothing beats homemade.

So here it is… this very simple strawberry ice cream, with lots of flexibility. Just use any sweetener or nondairy milk you like, and add the berries later on in the process if you like more texture. Really, you pretty much can’t go wrong.

Hope you love this classic-turned-vegan just as much as we do at our house.

FRESH STRAWBERRY ICE CREAM

1 1/2 cups soy milk, plain, unsweetened
3/4 cup fresh or frozen strawberries, pureed
1/2 cup, plus 1 tablespoon, maple syrup
3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Instructions

Whisk nondairy milk, strawberries, maple syrup, and vanilla together in a large bowl until combined well.

Carefully pour the mixture into the bowl of an automatic ice cream maker, and process according to manufacturer’s instructions until desired texture is achieved.

Enjoy immediately, or harden further in freezer for an hour or more.
