Honey Ginger Strawberry Ice Cream


Honey Ginger Strawberry Ice Cream Recipe l

With the different weather around here lately, I’m not sure if I should be eating ice cream or sipping hot chocolate! We’ve gone from mid-80’s to low-30’s in just a couple of days.

This ice cream was made on one of these 80 degree days. It was hot!

My husband and I went for a run, and I don’t think my body knew how to handle running in hot weather. I was so thirsty and wanted something cold to eat.

I knew that it was time to break out the ice cream maker and use up some fresh strawberries that were sitting in the fridge.

I wanted to keep the flavor light and refreshing and finally settled on using honey as the sweetener and adding a hint of ginger.

I knew I had achieved my goal when the first words out of my husband’s mouth when tasting the ice cream were, “This is refreshing!”

The strawberries are boiled down with the honey and ginger to create a sauce that acts as the base of the ice cream when mixed with milk.

If you want chunks of strawberries in your ice cream, make sure to not stir too hard when the mixture is boiling. I

f you prefer a smooth ice cream, boil the strawberries a little longer and stir more frequently to puree the strawberries.

Either way, the ice cream is full of strawberry flavor with a light sweetness from the honey, making it a great warm weather treat!

Now excuse me while I go wrap up in a blanket and sip some hot chocolate while watching the snow fall in this winter weather advisory!
