roasted strawberry ice cream

I came across this on ... did you guess it? 
Yep on pinterest where all the most interesting things can be found!
So seeing that strawberries are cheap at the moment, it is Queensland strawberry season here, I thought I would try it.

One thing that I learned long ago when I used to make ice cream BICM (before ice cream machine) when I whipped up cream and added condensed milk, was that if you use berries they must be cooked first or they go all icy in the ice cream - not nice!
So when I saw this recipe I knew I was on a winner.

You simply roast a punnet of strawberries in an oven 150C with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar, 2 T of dextrose (or sugar) and 2 T of rice malt syrup.
For about 30 - 45 minutes until they are soft and mushy looking, cool and process in your food processor.
Then churn with a basic vanilla ice cream base.
Here is my basic recipe:

Enjoy with some extra strawberries on top or some home made ice magic, simply melt a heaped tablespoon of coconut oil with 2 rows of 70% dark chocolate - I use Lindt cooking chocolate, when melted spoon onto ice cream.

  1. Great advice about cooking the fruit. I don't make much ice cream cause I don't have a machine. But it's a great way to use up cheap fruit.

    Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

  2. This sounds so nice! I wish I had an ice cream maker now!

  3. oh wow...sounds and looks delicious!! I have never attempted making ice make it seem so easy!!

  4. Hope you are having a great weekend and thank you so much for sharing your awesome recipe with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!

  5. Deanne,
    This is an amazing recipe. I would never have thought of roasting the strawberries, and adding the balsamic has got to make it amazing. I don't normally like strawberry ice cream, but this is a recipe that I will try. Thank you so much for sharing with Wednesdays Adorned From Above Link Party last week. This weeks Link Party is opened at
    Hope to see you there. It is open until Sunday night.
