I have a Walmart story I am posting to my other blog later so be sure to hop over there. Really funny. Always have fun at Walmart. Did you know I was a deal hunter? I even use coupons. I forgot them but I still scored shaving cream for a buck. So I bought 16. I would have bought more but didn’t want to see like a lunatic. I get home and Kiana shakes her head. Apparently 16 still makes you look like lunatic. Who knew?
Okay, okay so enough crazy ramblings. I made strawberry banana ice cream yesterday. I wanted to wait for the sun today though to get some good photos. So here it is folks, enjoy and don’t hate me cuz I rock hard in the kitchen. I cannot help my fabulosity, it’s a gift.
Strawberry Banana Ice Cream: (I apologize for no banana in the pic but the brood ate them all)
*Adapted from the strawberry recipe in Cuisinart Book*
3 to 4 bananas, I used 4 but quite honestly 3 would be better
1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled
2/3 cup sugar
3/4 cup whole milk
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups of heavy cream, to us Canucks that means whipping cream, impossible to find heavy cream in Ontario
1 + 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Place bananas and strawberries in a food processor. If you don’t have one shop by hand.
In your food processor pulse the strawberries and bananas until chopped finely.
Now add milk, sugar and salt in a bowl and whisk. You can use a stand mixer with whisk attachment.
Now add the whipping cream and vanilla and fold in. If using a stand mixer just mix on low for a couple of minutes.
Now you can add the strawberry and banana mixture you set aside. Just let it mix for a minute or two.
Now cover the bowl with foil or plastic wrap and stick in the fridge for at least 2 hours. (I use an elastic to keep it tight)
Remove from fridge and pour into ice cream maker bowl. (THIS BOWL MUST BE FROZEN AHEAD OF TIME, DO LIKE I DO AND JUST LEAVE IT IN THE FREEZER ALL THE TIME SO IT’S ALWAYS READY TO ROCK N ROLL)
Turn on and let the machine mix it for about 15 to 20 minutes. It should be thickened when ready.
It should be ready to eat now or if serving later stick it in the freezer. Just remember to take it out 10 or 15 minutes before serving so it is easier to scoop out.
Serve with a smile.
