Raspberry ice cream

Raspberry ice cream

Ice cream? I wonder who doesn’t like ice cream, especially when the weather gets warm. My whole family loves ice cream. Given a choice I would prefer one with added fruits…….a healthier ice cream. But I haven’t found one with a lot of fruits in it. I guess I have to make it myself again. Don’t get me wrong. I still indulge in other ice creams, like vanilla ice creams and chocolate ice creams, sometimes. 

Frozen fruits here are much cheaper than the fresh ones which makes it perfect for making ice cream. I had tried mango ice cream and blueberry ice cream. My girl would only make coffee ice cream. It’s of course very delicious and one of my favourites.

Frozen raspberries

Recently I made raspberry ice cream. I love the look of my ice cream with all the pieces of raspberry in it. See the top picture above. It was not too sweet. I had it with my white chocolate cake. I like it very much. I served my friends too and they liked it.

To make a healthier ice cream, I added a lot of raspberries. I also used unrefined sugar instead of the normal white sugar. I also cut down on the amount of sugar.

Here’s my simple Raspberry Ice Cream recipe. My method will give a hard ice cream the next day. If you like a smoother, softer one, do invest in an ice cream maker. I have one ice cream maker but have not used it yet. Oooops…..I can’t remember where I put it. Need to go for a good treasure hunt….. *grin*.

Ingredients
400ml double cream
60g sugar (I used unrefined sugar)
350g frozen raspberries

Pour double cream into a mixing bowl. Add sugar. Beat with a cake beater until thick. If you buy a 300ml tub of double cream, just adjust the ingredients slightly. You don’t need to be highly accurate.

Add raspberries to cream

Add raspberries to cream

Take out the raspberries from the freezer only after you have whipped the cream. Chop it coarsely with a knife or cleaver. Mine still has some big pieces. Add the chopped raspberries to the whipped cream.

Mix raspberries and cream together

Stir to mix. You can actually eat it as it is. I did that…mmm….delicious. You can use some as a filling for swiss roll or other cakes or even to top meringues and then freeze the rest.

Pour ice cream into containers

Pour ice cream into containers

Pour into a plastic container, or 2 smaller ones, and freeze it for a few hours or overnight. After a a couple of hours it will be like soft ice cream. You can enjoy it as it is. Or you can leave it overnight. It will become hard but still very delicious. I love it served with cakes.

It’s easy to remove from the plastic container once it’s hardened. Use a knife to cut into pieces and enjoy.

Making ice cream is just so simple. Homemade is still the best as you don’t need to add any preservatives or other additives. It’s also very cheap to make. Hope you will give this a try. Remember if you have an ice cream maker, put it to good use. You will get a smoother texture. In the mean time, I need to go and find mine…..*wink*. Then I’ll have creamy ice creams…..*big smiles*.

Quote of the day……

“When nothing seems to help, I go and look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not that blow that did it - but all that had gone before.”

- Jacob Riis

Looks delicious Mary, I have not ventured into making ice cream yet because I always assumed an ice cream maker would need to be used! This is great, I would like to try a frozen yogurt version also :)

Ice cream is a mainstay here in Florida during the summer. Berries are ripe and in season. Your raspberry ice cream is inspiring. Awesome.

Happy summer to you.

Look at those chunks of raspberries! Wow! It somewhat reminded me of the ice-cream I had as a kid - a block of ice-cream sandwiched between two thin wafers!

Yummy bakes  on August 1st, 2011

5 Star Foodie  on August 1st, 2011

A terrific easy method! and the ice cream sounds super delicious with raspberries!

redkathy  on August 2nd, 2011

Ok Mary, I am inspired!!! I don’t own an ice cream maker and generally grumble when I see delicious ice cream recipes that I can not prepare. Now you have me smiling and doing the happy dance cause I can make this recipe!!

Thank you :)

Cheah  on August 3rd, 2011

I envy you Mary. You’re spoilt for choice with all those berries. Back here, raspberries are super expensive.

Janine  on August 7th, 2011

I’m also envious of your berries! I don’t have an ice-cream maker either and that has been my excuse not to make ice-cream but you’ve convinced me to try it out! The results look fantastic!

Deven  on September 14th, 2011
