Lourdes's luscious strawberry ice cream

Updated: Apr 24

My wife’s favorite food ever. I invested in an ice cam maker a few years ago and have never looked back. The world of great ice cream opened up to me, yes both savory (tomato gazpacho sorbet with balsamic glaze) and sweet (creme fraiche ice cream topped with caviar). Here is a very simple recipe, just freeze it if you don’t have a machine. 

This is my favorite Spanish cookbook. I have cooked quite a few recipes from this book, and every one of them including this ice cream, is excellent.

This ice cream is smooth, creamy and tart from the fresh taste of strawberries.

1 lb strawberries, hulled and chopped

3/4 cup sugar

5 tablespoons lemon juice

Mix all these together and purée in a blender till smooth. Set aside. 


1 3/4 cup heavy cream. 


Add cream to a deep bowl and whip to soft peaks. Add the puréed strawberries and gently mix in. Taste and adjust sugar, you want ithe mix to be a bit sweeter, as when you freeze the mix, the sugar is less dominant. Freeze in the ice cream maker or fridge.
