How To Make Homemade Strawberry Ice-cream

Updated on January 12, 2015

Making your very own ice-cream may seem a tad daunting at first but ice-creams made with fruit and cream are actually easier to make than you might imagine. Compared to ice-creams that have a custard base they also tend to taste more intense in flavour.

Follow the guide below on how to make your homemade strawberry ice-cream cheaply and with minimal ingredients with or without an ice-cream maker.

Cook Time

Prep time: 1 hour
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 1 hour 30 min
Yields: Serves 6 people

Homemade Strawberry Ice-cream Ingredients:

  • 450 grams Strawberries, Hulled
  • The juice of half a lemon
  • 115 grams Castor Sugar
  • 250 ml Whipping Cream, Chilled
  • You will also need a blender and an ice-cream maker to produce in under 90 minutes.

Make Your Homemade Strawberry Ice-cream:

  1. To get started chop all the strawberries and don't worry about being neat! Be as rough as you want. Take a bowl and mix the strawberries, lemon and caster sugar. Then leave to stand for an hour. This is to allow the fruit to soften and the caster sugar to dissolve.
  2. Now whip your cream until it forms soft peaks. If your not entirely sure on how to properly whip cream take a look at the video below for a quick demonstration. Then puree your strawberries (with the lemon and caster sugar) by mixing them in a blender. After that slowly pour the strawberry puree into your bowl of whipped cream and mix everything together.
  3. Now you have your ice-cream mix! To create your strawberry homemade ice-cream now churn in an ice-cream machine. I use one of 'Andrew James' ice-cream makers as they are reliable and good value for money. The one below is particularly good as it comes with a recipe book. Buy it now at the link below. If you do not have an ice-cream maker pour your strawberry mix into a shallow container and still-freeze. Doing it this way will take considerably longer but providing you do it properly you should still be able to produce lush results. If you do decide to still-freeze make sure you take your ice-cream out of the freezer every couple of hours (around three times) and fork the frozen stuff around the outside into the rest of the mix. This will ensure your homemade ice-cream becomes even and smooth.

Replace Strawberries with Raspberries or Blackberries!

Because this is such a simple way of making your own homemade ice-cream you could easily replace the strawberries with raspberries or blackberries. If doing this though, bear in mind raspberries may need a little more sugar as raspberries are more intensive in flavour and so could lead to a rather sour tasting ice-cream. Make sure you taste the mix before adding it to your whipped cream to make sure it meets your requirements! Also bear in mind that raspberry and blackberry purees will need to be sieved before being mixed with the cream to ged rid of all those little pips and seeds.
