We all know how good strawberries and cream are together, so what's better than a scoop or two of strawberry ice cream....perhaps homemade strawberry ice cream.
Or even a homemade strawberry ice cream drizzled with a luxurious chocolate sauce!
I can imagine that it'd be amazing accompanying our strawberry & basil upside down cake.
As well as being the perfect centre for a strawberry baked Alaska!
Strawberry ice cream is really easy to make with a handful of everyday ingredients. We're just talking of eggs, milk, cream, sugar and of course strawberries! There's no fancy unpronounceable ingredients, or those referenced with an E-number, in homemade ice cream.
And of course by making your own ice cream you're able to custom it to
your own preferences. If you like to see chunks of strawberries in your
strawberry ice cream - consider it done. Likewise, blitz the
strawberries for longer if you fancy it completely smooth.
Ice cream is perfect for those hot summer days. And of course any left
overs can be kept in the freezer for another day - though of course when
homemade ice cream tastes as good as this it wont hang around for long!
