Easy to make, 5 ingredients only, sweet and flavorful strawberry ice cream with chocolate chunks that tastes like summer.

The farmers markets will soon start to burst with aromatic organic strawberries, and thats when you know that summer is very, very close. I found some ripe and flavorful strawberries on sale at whole foods and the first things that came to my mind were: enjoy them fresh, dip them in chocolate, make another strawberry tart or a strawberry milkshake, or even better make ice cream, or maybe cut them and feed them to my always hungry toddler. I decided better, to make this sweet and creamy strawberry ice cream with chocolate chunks that the whole family loved.

strawberry ice cream with chocolate chunksI pictured myself eating a sugar cone with homemade strawberry ice cream with chocolate chunks, oh yeah, a lot of chocolate chunks! A few hours later my dream came true, just look at that picture to get an idea of how decadent and rich this ice cream is. As you can assume it turned out delicious, creamy, with a prominent strawberry flavor and loaded with sweet, big chunks of dark chocolate, all this goodness stuffed into a crispy sugar cone.

And you can feel good about it, its fruits, its strawberry after wall, full of vitamin C and so many good for you antioxidants from all that dark chocolate. I love eating healthy like this.

Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • 1 quart fresh organic strawberries, washed, stemmed and quartered
  • 2½ cups organic granulated sugar
  • 4 cups organic heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 5 organic egg yolks
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chunks
Instructions
  1. In a blender, combine strawberries with ½ cup of the sugar and process until smooth.
  2. In a saucepan, over medium heat, combine heavy cream with the rest of sugar. Bring to a simmer.
  3. In a mixing bowl, whisk egg yolks until smooth. Add 1 cup of the hot liquid to the egg yolks and whisk until smooth.
  4. Add the yolk mixture to the saucepan of liquid and whisk until well incorporated. Bring the liquid back to simmer and continue to cook for 4 to 6 minutes or until the mixture coats the back of a spoon. Remove from the heat and stir in the strawberries. Whisk until smooth.
  5. Pour the mixture into a glass bowl and place a piece of plastic wrap on top of the mixture. This will prevent a skin from forming while cooling. Cool the mixture completely. Fold in the chocolate chunks.
  6. Process the mixture according the ice cream machine instructions.
