Got this one from Peggy Fallon's "The Best Ice Cream Maker Cookbook Ever." I had a bunch of aging strawberries, and half a quart of buttermilk to use up ... and this worked perfectly. It is a lovely, light ice cream, but the texture made it seem like it had a lot more fat in it than it really does. And the color is spectacular -- a wonderful bubblegum pink!
- 2 pints strawberries, as ripe as possible
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
- 2 cups low-fat buttermilk
- Combine strawberries, sugar and lemon juice in a food processor or blender and process until smooth. (This will go more easily if you chop the strawberries first).
- Combine strawberry puree and buttermilk and stir until well blended.
- Refrigerate at least four hours, or overnight if possible.
- Transfer to ice cream maker and process according to manufacturer's directions.
We made this with fresh blueberries instead of strawberries...the flavor was delicious. Tart and fruity, very fresh; however, I thought the texture was too icy.
My kids really enjoyed this easy ice cream. We also made popsicles as well. Definitely going to make it again.
