Strawberry ice cream


I was actually planning to make a special strawberry salad last week, but the avocados I wanted to use went brown before I could even reach for a salad bowl. My husband suggested that he could throw a nice piece of meat on the braai instead (he’s forever looking for an excuse to use one of his three braais). So that’s what we did, and it was lip-smacking – as always.

Problem was, now I had all these strawberries and no idea what to do with them.  I can’t remember ever really tasting strawberry ice cream. We all know strawberry milkshake and the pink parts of Neapolitan ice cream, but ice cream made of fresh strawberries? I honestly haven’t. So I had to give it a try!


200 g fresh strawberries, cut into quarters

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

250 ml sugar

2 eggs

500 ml cream

250 ml milk

10 ml Grundheim strawberry liqueur


  1. Combine the strawberries, lemon juice and 50 ml sugar. Let it cool  in the  fridge for an hour.
  2. Beat the eggs and add 200 ml sugar. Mix well and add the milk and liqueur.
  3. Add the refrigerated strawberries and gently stir in the cream.
  4. Chill for 12 hours.
  5. Churn your ice cream according to your machine’s specifications.
