With all this sunshine we’ve been enjoying recently, there was only one recipe that we thought we should share with you all. Inspired by a video we shared on our Facebook page, this is a recipe for strawberry ice cream in a bag. Quick and fun, this is a great kitchen craft to do with kids with a delicious end result!
- 250ml single cream
- 2 tablespoons caster sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4 tablespoons fresh strawberries, chopped
- 4 scoops ice cubes
- 4 tablespoons coarse salt
- In a litre size, resealable plastic bag, place the cream, sugar, vanilla extract and strawberries. Press the air out of the bag, seal it up and shake to combine.
- Place the bag with your mixture into a larger sized, resealable plastic bag. Add the ice and salt to the larger bag, press the air out and seal.
- Wrap the larger bag in a tea towel and shake continuously until the contents of the smaller bag start to thicken into soft ice cream. This should be about 5-10 minutes.
- Rinse the small bag quickly under cold water to wash off salt. Lay the ice cream filled bag on a flat surface and use a wooden spoon handle to push the ice cream down to the bottom corner. Snip off the corner and squeeze the ice cream into a bowl.
This is such a versatile recipe, as you can just remove the strawberries and use something else. Here are some ideas:
- Add raspberries and raspberry coulis for raspberry ripple
- Use flavourings like lemon or almond instead of vanilla
- Replace the sugar with cocoa powder or use chocolate syrup
- Make sorbet instead by using only fruit juice in the smaller bag
- Add cookie pieces and chocolate chips for cookie dough ice cream
The possibilities are absolutely endless, so why not get experimenting?
