My son was begging me for strawberry ice cream, so I made him this version from my old recipe. We made a very low sweet version with only a 1/4 cup xylitol – also because too much xylitol can affect you .. in an unpleasant way. It’s delicious and fresh tasting, and my son loved it. Pictured with a gluten free ice cream cone, which probably negates the sugar-free aspect of the ice cream, ha!
If you do not have a Vitamix or want to use fresh strawberries, I suggest using my original recipe here.
This ice cream works without eggs, if you cannot have them. We used raw milk, and it was amazing. If you have access, definitely get some and use it! I only used a little vanilla as I wanted this ice cream to have a fresh cream flavor, instead of vanilla ice cream flavor.
Make sure you freeze your ice cream insert for at least 24 hours before making this!
Gluten Free Sugar Free Strawberry Ice Cream
From WooWooMommy.com. This low sweet ice cream has the taste of fresh strawberries and cream.
2 organic pastured eggs
2 cups non-homogenized organic cream, raw preferred
1 cup non-homogenized organic milk, raw preferred
1 tablespoon of lemon juice or red wine
1/4 – 1/2 cup GMO-free xylitol (to taste)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Ice cream maker
Vitamix or similar high speed blender
*Crack your egg into a bowl only one at a time before the Vitamix, to avoid shells.* Turn the Vitamix on low speed, around 5 to 7 speed. Add eggs separately, blending in between and after until frothy. Add milk, cream, and vanilla extract and mix, then turn off.
Scrape the strawberry mixture into the Vitamix, making sure to get all the xylitol with the spatula. Blend on high until the strawberries are well blended but the mixture is still very cold.
Pour into ice cream maker until about 3/4 full and follow the manufacture’s directions. You will have some left over if yours is a Quart ice cream maker, which you can make more ice cream later, or just drink as strawberry-milk while your ice cream is freezing! It will freeze to a soft serve consistency.
After ice cream frozen, take OUT of the container because it will freeze too hard on the sides, and freeze it into another container to harden it more. You can eat some soft serve, of course. After freezing, you want to set it out to soften about 15 minutes before eating because of the low sugar content.
**TIPS: don’t overfill your ice cream maker, as the volume will increase as the mixture gets colder and cleanup is a mess if it overflows.
