You’ll be able to taste the sunshine in this recipe that uses juicy, organic strawberries. While I recommend an ice cream maker for proper aeration, you don’t need an ice cream maker to enjoy this super creamy recipe.
Makes: approx. 1.5 quarts | Preparation Time: 45mins
Ice Cream Maker (optional)
Let’s Get Started:
Prepare your Raw Vanilla Ice Cream mixture, pour into a covered dish and place in the fridge to chill for at least one hour.
Rinse your organic berries well.
Select 3-4 of the prettiest strawberries and chop them into small pieces and set aside. Take remaining berries and all ingredients except Raw Vanilla Ice Cream mixture and blend until liquified. Spoon chopped strawberry pieces into liquified strawberries and gently stir with a spoon.
Viola! You now have strawberry swirl sauce. Transfer the sauce to a container or tiny pitcher that makes it easy to pour (a container for creamer works well) and place in fridge to chill.
If you are preparing this recipe sans ice cream maker: remove chilled Raw Vanilla Ice Cream mixture from refrigerator and carefully pour strawberry swirl sauce in a—you guessed it—swirly pattern into your Raw Vanilla Ice Cream mixture. Cover your container, place in freezer and once your creation is frozen, go to town.
If you are preparing with an ice cream maker: pour chilled Raw Vanilla Ice Cream mixture into your ice cream maker and prepare according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Once vanilla mixture is almost completely firm, pour in strawberry swirl sauce, but don’t over blend. You want to maintain the swirl. I will sometimes remove finished Raw Vanilla Ice Cream from the ice cream maker, put it into a large bowl and manually swirl the sauce in with a butterknife.
Those with an ice cream maker can eat immediately!
With both frozen preparations you will want to thaw to a scoopable consistency. Remove from the freezer about 15 minutes before serving. Share with friends, they will love you for it.
