Easy Strawberry Ice Cream made with shop-bought custard and fresh strawberries.

strawberry ice cream


This fresh strawberry ice cream is super easy to make and you don't need an ice cream maker, although if you do have one, you may use it.

This fruity ice cream is made from fresh summer strawberries and shop-bought custard.

You may use standard or vegan custard for this recipe. Both work equally well and taste delicious.

We like to use Alpro custard. Lovely stuff!


This ice cream is fabulous served as it is but I served it with fudgey chocolate cake the one I got from Anne

Let me tell you, it was a slice of heaven on a plate! 

Easy Strawberry Ice Cream 500g pot good-quality vanilla custard 600g strawberries, hulled and sliced 50 - 100g caster sugar (depending on sweetness of strawberries and custard, you may not actually need any sugar) 2 tsp balsamic vinegar a squeeze of lemon juice Whizz up all the ingredients in a blender or food processor. Then transfer the mixture into an ice cream machine. Churn until it begins to firm up. How long it takes will depend on your machine, I know my ice cream is done, when the paddle starts to rotate the opposite way, although you can tell by the texture. So, when the ice cream is velvety, transfer it to a container and freeze until you are ready to serve it. If you are churning by hand, pop into a container and freeze for about 90 minutes until it starts to freeze around the edges. Stir well, then repeat the process twice more until the mix is smooth and frozen. 
This really is a cheat's ice cream, as the custard is already made. It just makes the process so quick from start to finish and when you have a eureka moment like I did, when I decided to eat some of that fudgey chocolate cake, hot with ice cream, then it is just what you want. It is a good store cupboard standby for last minute guests too!
