Strawberry-lime ice cream
Adapted from a ton of recipes on the Internet
ice cream base:
14oz. sweetened condensed milk
3 – 3 ½ cups of half & half
pinch of salt
¾ - 1 pound fresh strawberries, chopped small or large
2 TB sugar
juice of 2 limes
zest of 1-2 limes (depending on how much you like the taste of lime)
In a medium bowl, mix together the chopped strawberries, sugar, lime juice & zest.
Cover and place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours over longer.
When ready to make ice cream using a colander drain off the juices if there is a lot. Keep the liquids. Set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together the sweetened condensed milk, half & half, salt, and the strawberry-lime juices.
Mix until thoroughly combined.
Pour mixture into ice cream maker and follow manufactures directions.
Right before the ice cream is done churning add in half the strawberries.
You’ll add the other half when you place the mixture into a bowl.
I do it this way so it won’t overcrowd the ice cream maker and spill onto the sides.
Working fast, pour a little bit of ice cream into freezer safe bowl or container, add in some strawberries, add on more ice cream then strawberries. Repeat this till its all in the bowl.
Freeze mixture until it is set up, usually a couple hours.
Should make 2 quarts? (I never really measured).
