If you don’t have an ice cream maker (or don’t want the extra chore of pulling one out), then this will be perfect for you! It only requires that you have a food processor or blender, and that you have frozen strawberries and some heavy cream on hand. The best part? It only takes 5 minutes to make (maybe 10 minutes if you include clean up time)! How great is that????
I printed this recipe from the internet a year or two ago and just tried it for the very first time the other day. I wish I’d tried it earlier because it was bursting with strawberry flavor and was delicious, not to mention it was a breeze to make.
5 Minute Strawberry Ice Cream
10 oz frozen strawberries
2/3 C heavy cream
1/4 C sugar*
Directions: Add the sugar, half the cream and half the strawberries into the blender or processor and process until it’s roughly chopped. Add the remaining strawberries and cream and continue to process until it’s smooth. You can enjoy it immediately or pop it into the freezer for a bit (that is, if you have the discipline to wait).
* The original recipe called for 1/2 C sugar, but I find that most recipes are too sweet and always end up reducing the sugar when I’m making it for my family.
My daughters love helping me make this and can barely wait to eat it all up afterwards! Hope you’ll enjoy it as much as they do!
