How to Make Your Own Strawberry Ice Cream Ingredients: 1/2 cup strawberries (about 2 cups) 1/4 cup sugar 1 egg 1/3 cup water 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 teaspoon lemon juice (optional)1/4 teaspoon saltFor the ice cream:1/2-cup water, divided into 4 equal parts 1 cup strawberries, roughly chopped (about 3 cups)1 cup sugar, divided between 1 cup and 2 cups 1/8 cup water, which can be substituted with 1/5 cup milk, but is also delicious, or 1 cup ice cream cubes, roughly shaved (about 1 1/16 cups)2/3 cups powdered sugarFor the frosting:1 tablespoon melted butter or ghee for brushing (or 1 tablespoon melted white chocolate)1 teaspoon strawberry jam or other flavor to garnish (optional, but recommended)Directions:1.
Pour 4 cups of the strawberry water and 1 cup of the strawberries into a bowl, then add the remaining 1 cup strawberry water to the bowl.
Using a fork, mix the strawberries and sugar together until they form a dough.
Divide the dough into 4 portions and shape each portion into a ball.
Spread each ball of dough onto a lightly floured surface, then flatten it into a 1/6-inch ball.
(Make sure to have a little extra dough on the surface to help it stick together.)
Sprinkle each piece of dough with 1 teaspoon of the vanilla extract and 2 teaspoons of the lemon juice.
Bake the strawberries until they’re browned, about 15 minutes.
Remove from the oven and let cool for 15 minutes, then remove the frosted ice cream from the fridge.
For the frostings, add the melted butter to a large bowl, add powdered sugar and whisk until combined.
Add the strawberry jam and beat to combine.
Remove the ice creampers from the freezer and sprinkle with the powdered sugar.
Bake in the oven for 30 minutes, or until the frosters are set and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
Serve the strawberry icecream as-is or topped with whipped cream.
