Delicious Gluten-Free Strawberry Ice Cream

My family loves this delicious "Gluten-Free Strawberry Ice Cream". You'll need an ice cream machine for this recipe.



4 large egg's yokes
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup whole milk
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup finely chopped fresh ripe strawberries


Change your beater to whisk on your mixer.

Place in the mixing bowl the egg yokes and sugar.

Whisk until light and fluffy; like whip cream.

In a small pot add milk, heavy cream and strawberries. Fresh fruit is always best but you can use frozen.

Constantly whisking bring to just before it starts to boil but you see steam releasing from the mixture.

Turn off heat.

While constantly whisking add one ladle of egg and sugar mixture slowly until you have added all of the mixture into the milk.

Return to high heat constantly whisking and cook for 5 minutes.

Remove from heat and place in fridge for 1 hour or until the mixture has cooled.

Pour the mixture into the ice cream machine and turn on. Usually takes about 45 minutes for the machine to make the ice cream.

Put ice cream in an airtight container and set in the freezer for at least 30 minutes to  1 hour.
