Eggless Strawberry Ice Cream - 5 ingredients Ice Cream - Step by Step

Who doesn't like ice creams ? Every one does. What if we prepare it at home, with healthy option ? Yes it will be very good. For the day 2 of "Summer Special " series, I prepared strawberry ice cream. Strawberry is in season now. So I bought s box of strawberry and prepared this ice cream. This is a no cook method and one bowl method too. This can be prepared in no time. Just with the available ingredients,we can create magic. The ice cream tasted very good, after 2 nd and 3 rd day. Too good to serve for our kids. Rohith was praising me for this treat. Any one can prepare this easy ice cream.Prepare this simple ice cream and send me a picture.:)

Preparation Time : 20 mins

Freezing time : 12 hours
Yield : 3 cups ( approx)

Ingredients:

1.Whipping Cream - 1 cup
2.Whole milk - 1 cup
3.Sugar - 1/2 cup
4.Strawberries - 10
5.Lemon juice - 1 tsp

Method:

* Wash and hull the strawberries.I have used fresh strawberries, as it is very necessary for a tasty ice cream. I have used about 1 lb ( 450 gm) of strawberries.


* Chop the strawberries finely and add it to the bowl. Add sugar and lemon juice to the strawberries. Keep it aside for 5 mins. The amount of sugar depends on how sweet is the strawberry. So adjust it accordingly. The lemon juice will balance the sweetness,so don't skip it.

* The strawberries would have released the juices.Mix it well.so that the sugar melts with the strawberry juice.

* Reserve some strwaberry pieces and transfer it to a blender. Now pour the whole milk and whipping cream to the blender .I didn't have 2 cups whipping cream,so I replaced 1 cup of whipping cream with 1 cup of whole milk. The more whipping cream, you use, the creamier the ice cream will be. But still, there's no offence in using whole milk.

* Now grind the mixture and pour it into a glass bowl. Sprinkle the reserved strawberry pieces to the bowl.Its completely optional to sprinkle some reserved strawberry pieces. If you don't like chunky ice cream, then blend all the pieces.

*Cover the bowl with a lid. Freeze the strawberry mixture in the freezer for atleast 2 hours.

* After 2 hours, take the ice cream out  .The ice cream would have almost set, but there will be icicles on it. We are going to break the ice. So we are going to churn the ice cream.

* Whisk the ice cream well and return to the freezer. Again, churn the ice cream again for every 2 hours. I churned the ice cream for 4 times ,every 2 hours.
                                                               
Serve the ice cream for your guests. The ice cream doesn't have any preservative, so try to finish it off asap. Mine got over within a week.

Notes:
* Adjust the amount of sugar according to your sweetness of the strawberries.
* We can also use all whipping cream ,instead of whole milk.
* Adding strawberry chunks is purely optional.
* The acid from lemon juice balances the sweetness.
* We can replace strawberry with any fruit.
* Instead of whipping cream, we can use coconut cream too.
* Aluminium tins will freeze fast. Since I didn't had aluminium, didn't use it.
