Fancy Figs? Make this Ice Cream

Summer is here, temperatures are rising, and we are all scrambling for something cold to cool us off. Frozen desserts fly off the shelves at our grocery stores, but why not make some yourself at home? Most of us buy ice cream, popsicles, and sorbets at the store because it is easier and making these frozen treats is something that can look a bit intimidating, but it’s actually easier than you may think.

No churn ice cream recipes start with a base of heavy whipping cream, condensed milk, and vanilla extract or vanilla bean. And if you want to be creative, just add any of your favorite flavors or ice cream add ins. As for equipment, all you will need is a stand mixer or hand mixer, resealable container and plastic wrap.

If you are looking for something fruitier and dairy free, I suggest a sorbet! They are very easy to make and my favorite go to summer sorbet is mango.

  1. In a small saucepan, add strawberries and sugar, cook for 10 minutes until the sugar is dissolved and the strawberries are soft, and the mixture is a syrup consistency, then let cool to room temperature.
  2. In a bowl, completely combine the condensed milk and vanilla.
  3. Once the strawberry mixture is cool, with a blender or an immersion blender, blend the mixture until smooth and resembles a sauce.
