Strawberry With Dark Chocolate Ice Cream

Strawberry With Dark Chocolate Ice Cream

Print Pin

Ingredients

  • 1 pint fresh ripe strawberries stemmed and sliced (I use an egg slicer and slice twice, turning the strawberry, so I get smaller pieces. Make sure to slice over a bowl to catch all the strawberry juice. You will need it later)
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 c. sugar divided
  • 1 c. whole milk
  • 2 c. heavy cream
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1-2 drops red food coloring optional
  • 1/4 c. dark chocolate chips melted

Instructions

  • Instructions: In a bowl, combine the sliced strawberries with the lemon juice and 1/3 cup of the sugar. Stir and let sit on the counter for 2 hours. This will allow the strawberries to release their juices, and also to take in the sugar.
  • In a medium bowl, mix the remaining 2/3 cup sugar and 1 cup whole milk until the sugar is dissolved. Then add the vanilla, heavy cream, and the juice from the strawberries. (You can also add food coloring if desired). Mix well and pour into your ice cream maker. When soft-serve consistency is reached, add the sliced strawberries and let the ice cream maker run for a few more minutes, until strawberries are incorporated throughout the ice cream. Remove from the ice cream maker and place in an airtight container in layers, drizzling the melted chocolate over each layer. Put in the freezer for several hours to allow ice cream to firm up.
