Strawberry Ice-Cream – Gluten-free and Vegan (with dairy option too)

IMAG0074-20180925-114646318

We’ve had a bumper crop of strawberries here in Australia but sadly, some people have been sabotaging them by placing needles into the strawberries. This has caused the start of a campaign to buy more strawberries to support the farmers. The only thing to be careful of is to cut the strawberries up first to ensure there are no foreign objects present. Cut them up, don’t cut them out is the tagline so this is the first of three recipes using strawberries. First, the vegan recipe for strawberry ice-cream and then the dairy one underneath.

Vegan Version

Ingredients

320 g tin of coconut condensed milk (I use the Panaroo one available from the Asian section of Woolworths)

400 g tin of coconut cream (I use the Aldi version which has no thickeners in it)

500 g fresh strawberries (please cut them up first)

1 tablespoon vanilla

Method

  1. Place all ingredients into a blender or thermocooker and blend thoroughly.
  2. Place into a freezer safe container and freeze until set.

Tips

You don’t need an ice-cream maker to set this ice-cream as it will set without ice crystals. It does set very firmly. If you want a softer ice-cream, add more vanilla or add some alcohol to the mix (e.g. rum) which will prevent it from freezing so hard. You need to leave it on the bench a while to soften before scooping. Another idea is to freeze it into small muffin sized silicone moulds so that it is already portioned out for easy removal. You can also make this ice-cream using other fruit. I often make mango ice-cream this way.

Dairy Version

Ingredients

600 g thickened cream (or pure cream) Ensure it has no gluten thickeners in it.

400 g tin of sweetened condensed milk

500 g strawberries (cut up)

1 tablespoon vanilla

Method

  1. As for the vegan version above
