Magic Strawberry Ice Cream
We expected it to be a walk in the park: Simply stir strawberries into our no-machine vanilla ice cream. But the berries formed icy crystals.
Why This Recipe Works
In the past, we nailed a machine-free method for homemade vanilla and chocolate ice creams using a base of sweetened condensed milk, melted chocolate chips (white or semisweet), and whipped cream. Could we complete the Neapolitan trifecta with a strawberry version? The moisture-rich berries provided more of an icy challenge than we’d imagined, but a small amount of vodka kept the crystals at bay and let the fresh berry flavor shine.
