Strawberry icecream without icecream maker


My husband loves icecreams.We always buy strwberry icecream from stores.I guess this is strawberries season,I found many stores full of strawberries, I had stock of strwaberrys in my fridge,so i thought of making something with it,so why not stawberry icecream??even through i dont have icecream maker,i tried searching for this recipe.I found this recipe from the fellow blogger @http://passionateaboutbaking.blogspot.com/,I was excited to try this and i tried it! Its very easy to prepare with very few ingredients!!I am thankful to her ..check her blog..its very wonderful!!

This method of making ice cream requires quite a lot of time, effort and patience but for those who don't have an ice cream maker it means you can still enjoy our ice cream recipes.

I am happy with the results. It's Creamy, and full of strwberry flavour.I had taken same measurements and i followed the same procedure too!!

Ingredients:

palin/valila whole milk yogurt/hung curd -1 cup (240g)
strawberries, rinsed and hulled-1 pound (450g)
sugar-2/3 cup (130g)
fresh lime juice-1 teaspoon

Preparation:

1.Tie the yoghurt in a cheesecloth and let it sit in a strainer in a bowl overnight or for atleast 2 hours. This will help drain off all the whey and result in a very creamy frozen yoghurt dessert.

2.Cut the strawberries and toss it in the sugar until it begins to dissolve.


3.Blend it together until it forms a consistent puree.

4.Next, blend in the yoghurt and lime juice until the mixture is smooth.


5.Freeze the mixture in a wide dish or plastic container (larger the surface area, quicker the freezing – since we have to pulse this mixture a couple of times).Make sure you have a bowl that’s quite wide to use for the churning/freezing process .

6.Keep checking on the mixture every 30 minutes or so and use the stick blender to break the icicles. I did it 6 to 8 times.

I am soo happy with the results,it is really wonderful!!
