Recipes for the Soul: Vanilla Ice Cream with Strawberry Chunks
Homemade Ice Cream
This will be my first time EVER making ice cream! For my birthday I received an ice cream maker attachment for my Kitchen Aid. I couldn’t be more excited! This means when it’s officially summer I will be doing a segment called :Sundaes on Sunday.
Foodie Friday was a two part recipe.
First, because I didn’t realize that the Kitchen Aid Bowl needed to be in the freeze for at least 15 hours. Make sure to get that thing in the freezer! I also prepped the batter last night. Besides my small hick up, ice cream making was simple!
You scream, we scream, ICE CREAM!
Day 1: Night Before
Place kitchen aid bowl attachment in freezer the night before. It needs to be in the freezer for 15 hours. Need to get this attachment? Click here
I LOVE supporting local businesses in my area. But, I also know that it can be expensive. I got my dairy and strawberries at the local farmers market. However, it is totally OKAY if you buy it from the grocery store!
Ice Cream Batter Prep
Measure all ingredients. (It’s easier to have everything ready to pour into sauce pan)
Use a medium sauce pan. Set heat to medium.
Add dairy products.
Then slowly stir in sugar. Until it is fully disintegrated. Add a pinch of salt. Turn heat off and add vanilla
The batter will start to bubble. That is normal!
Transfer mixture to a separate bowl.
Separate eggs in two separate bowls.
Add egg yolks to batter. Mix on medium speed until fully blened together.
Then, transfer batter back into saucepan. Turn heat to medium.
Whisk batter together. Do not let the batter boil. Batter will begin to thicken. Once it does turn heat off.
Pour into a separate bowl and cover.
Let sit in fridge for an hour. Then uncover and mix together with a whisk. Then put back into fridge for at least 6 hours.
Day 2: Mixing to Perfection
Now that everything is cooled off and ready to be mixed! It’s time to get this ice cream finished.
Attach the Kitchen Aid Ice Cream bowl onto the base of the mixer. Set mixing piece onto the middle of the bowl.
Before placing batter into bowl add strawberries. Cut strawberries to your liking.
The pour batter into bowl. Some of the batter may begin to freeze.
Set mixing speed to stir.
Let stir for 30 minutes. (If you hear a clicking noise coming from your machine it means the ice cream is ready.)
Lift the top piece of the Kitchen Aid…….you have ICE CREAM!!!!
Take the main piece out. Place into a bowl. You can either take off the ice cream with a spoon……or you can enjoy it! Either way works.
Pour ice cream into a large bowl. Preferably one that has a lid and freezable. If you are going to eat the ice cream right away you don’t have to worry about freezing it.
If you are going to store your ice cream flatten the surface. Then cover ice cream and place in freezer to enjoy later!
Enjoy this yummy ice cream any time!
I can’t wait to share this with my family later on today at our family get-together!
