Strawberry Ice Cream

Strawberries are my favourite fruit. I could eat them all day long. Now that local strawberries are available I buy a box of them every day. Often I eat them right out of that box, sometimes they make it into my morning oats, and sometimes I do even use them in a recipe. Who would have thought?

Homemade ice cream usually requires only little little preparation. Pureé some fruit, mix all of your ingredients and let your ice cream machine do the rest. Oh and don’t forget to eat your ice cream once it is ready.

Strawberry Ice Cream with Mango and Banana

inspired by Andrea’s fantastic ice cream recipe

100 g (3/4 cup) banana, chopped
400 g (2 1/2 cups) strawberries, chopped
150 g (1 cup) mango chunks
150 g (3/4 cup) sugar
1 T vanilla sugar or 1 t vanilla extract
240 g (1 cup) soy yoghurt, very cold
180 g (1 cup) coconut milk, very cold
3/4 t guar gum (optional)

Purée the fruit pieces in your food processor, blender, or with your hand held blender, until smooth. Add all other ingredients except for guar gum (if using). Carefully sprinkle guar gum on top and purée one more time. Transfer to your ice cream machine and follow manufacturer’s instructions. Freeze for a couple of hours before serving. To serve sprinkle with coconut flakes or fresh strawberries. Or how about brownies or chocolate waffles?

  1. This is a wonderful recipe. I made it for a party tonight but my husband has already started eating it. Thanks!!

  2. I love your strawberry ice cream– looks like the perfect summer treat. I tried making some strawberry ice cream with soymilk the other day, and it tasted great but wouldn’t solidify. Good idea to use guar gum.

  3. If only I could get my hands on an ice cream maker, I’d make this immediately! But honestly, like you, I usually just eat them straight out of the box.

  4. i love strawberries. i like freezing them and putting them in smoothies instead of ice cubes. or you can put the frozen strawberries in tea instead of ice cubes for an interesting punch to ice tea.

  5. Strawberries are definitely at the top of my list as well :)

    Thanks! Yes..uck…real veal is totally nasty. Even when I was a little kinder and my parents would make it, I would refuse to eat it. I just had to ask carnivores lots of questions before making the vegan version.

    I am definitely scared as hell to change my hair…I keep making these excuses in my head as to why I shouldn’t, but I’m going to make myself stick to my decision!

  6. The colors in your photograph complement each other nicely! I love strawberries too; Tim and I picked nearly 50 pounds recently (some of which made ice cream!!!). We will have to try your recipe, it sounds like a lovely variation to plain strawberry.

  7. Oooo this looks so delicious. My freezer doesn’t have enough room for me to try making this, but maybe when I’m at my parents… heheheh

    Thanks so much for the comment! I feel honoured that an amazing blogger such as yourself read it! ^_^

  8. strawberries really are the best, Mihl! i can’t argue with ya on that one! mmmmmmm! strawberries + mango + bananas sounds like the yummiest ice cream, indeed! hooray!

  9. I’ve been over the moon with strawberry season, too! I don’t know if I can spare enough to make much with them… But this is definitely on the list if I get more! ;)

  10. Oh yum! That looks and sounds delicious! I can’t wait for homegrown strawberries to start popping up here.

  11. That sounds like a dessert from heaven! Strawberries and coconut milk! But I don’t have a icecream maker. I don’t if it might work without one. It will probably be less creamy… But it looks so delicious!

  12. Thanks for the link! This ice cream sounds very, very good. Strawberries are at their peak here in the Midwest – and it’s really hot – the perfect inspiration for some ice cream making. Is it ok to have waffles and ice cream for supper? :)
