Strawberries & Cream Ice Cream with Pink Peppercorns
Strawberries and cream – was there ever a more iconic duo? We’re taking the classic flavour pairings of strawberries and cream, and adding zingy, citrusy pink peppercorns to this dreamy, creamy, no-churn ice cream.
Who doesn’t love no-churn ice cream? It’s got all of the delicious creaminess and velvetiness of homemade ice cream with none of the usual fuss. You simply throw your ingredients together, freeze, and enjoy – what could be simpler?
We’ve made a few no-churn wonders at the Culinary Cartel over the years, like this divine lemon ice cream, and we really can’t get enough! As it’s Wimbledon weekend, strawberries and cream are de rigueur. So, why not whip up a strawberries and cream ice cream treat to savour in between matches?
No ice cream machine? No problem!
This is a no-churn recipe, meaning that there is no need for any specialised equipment, ice cream machines included. All you need is 15 minutes, six ingredients, and one bowl. That’s it!
Simply whip your wet ingredients until they’re fluffy and thick, fold together into a delicious cloud, and freeze along with ripples of strawberry puree.
