Strawberry - basil Ice cream (Helado de frutillas y albahaca)








Fresh or frozen strawberries and basil become a refreshing Ice cream treat  in any season !


I always tell you can  eat ice cream all year around, and is my mom's favorite dessert .
Here is a new recipe really amazing and the basil and strawberries go perfect!

Source : My recipes  






Ingredients

1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 can evaporated milk
1 1/2 cup whole milk
2 tablespoons sugar 
1/8 teaspoon table salt
500 grams (about 16 onzas) fresh
or frozen strawberries coarsely chopped
1 1/2 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice



Method

Whisk together first sweetened condensed milk,evaporated milk,  whole milk. sugar and salt.
 Cover and chill in fridge 2 hours.

Meanwhile pulse strawberries, basil and lemon juice in a food processor 4 or 5 times until finely chopped. And then stir strawberry mixture into chilled milk mixture.


Transfer mixture to an container or loaf pan covered tighlty with aluminium foil and freeze about 2 hours until thick and creamy.  Stir and  freeze again about 2 hours more or until is solid and scoopable.

Usually I make at night and freeze all the night until the other day.

If you use an Ice cream maker freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.


Let sit at room temperature for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.

  3. Sounds delicious but I would have to sieve out the strawberry pips as they give me diverticulitis but I guess that is not a big deal and the chance to enjoy strawberries. Diane
