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?
