Freshen up on a hot summer day with this rich and delicious strawberry ice cream! It’s also made creamy with white chocolate for a sweeter treat.
- 8ozwhite chocolate,finely chopped
- 1cupwhole milk
- 5large egg yolks
- 2cupsheavy cream
- 1tspvanilla extract
- 2cupsstrawberries,finely diced
Put the chocolate pieces in a large bowl, then set a mesh strainer over the top.
Warm the milk, sugar, and salt in a medium saucepan.
In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the egg yolks.
Slowly pour the warm milk into the egg yolks, whisking constantly.
Scrape the warmed egg yolks back into the saucepan.
Stir the mixture constantly over medium heat with a heatproof spatula, scraping the bottom while stirring, until the mixture thickens and coats the spatula.
Pour the custard through the strainer over the white chocolate.
Stir until the white chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is smooth, then stir in the cream and vanilla.
Stir until cool over an ice bath.
Chill the mixture thoroughly in the refrigerator, then freeze it in the ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Add the strawberries about 5 minutes before the ice cream maker’s cycle is completed.
Serve cold, and enjoy!
For a lighter strawberry ice cream, substitute milk for more of the cream (such as 2 cups milk and 1 cup cream). Or use 2% instead of whole milk. Or you could also reduce the number of egg yolks.
