Day one – Strawberry and Banana Ice Cream

This week, I’m playing with one of my favorite treats – chocolate covered fruit. I think that chocolate covered bananas and strawberries are perfectly simple and amazing. I am making all of the recipes from the Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream and Desserts Book.

If you don’t yet have an ice cream maker, you should really get one. I have the KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment and I love it! The KitchenAid mixer does all the work of mixing the cream, while I clean up the kitchen, and brings it to a soft serve consistency.  I simply leave the bowl in the freezer and pull it out when I need it.

The only downside is that it’s sitting in my freezer… taking up space.

However, I think that homemade ice cream made with cream and eggs is just so much better than ice cream with preservatives and chemicals.

Now, if you take a look at the recipe, this ice cream is made with raw eggs. Please don’t email me with the dangers of eating raw eggs. I know the risks and I take precautions. I buy in-shell pasteurized eggs or use Egg Beaters to eliminate a risk of Salmonella poisoning.  If you don’t have these options, you can reduce the risk of Salmonella by washing the eggs and avoid letting the raw egg touch the outside of the egg shell. Don’t assume that farm fresh or organic eggs have any less chance of carrying Salmonella. (source)

That being said, this ice cream is amazing! I’ve made it several times and you can make just the vanilla part of the recipe and add in any candies or extracts to make your own favorite flavor.

You enjoy this ice cream in a soft serve consistency right out of the mixing bowl, however, it is recommended to freeze the mixture overnight for a traditional firm texture.

Day One – Strawberry Banana Ice Cream – Chocolate Covered Fruit

Serves: 1 quart of ice cream

You can't beat homemade ice cream with basic milk, cream, eggs, sugar and fruit.
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¾ cup Sugar
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole Milk
  • ⅔ Cup frozen strawberries in syrup, thawed
  • 1 overripe Banana
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  1. Recipe from Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream & Dessert Book
  2. Mash the Banana in a bowl. Drain the strawberries and pour the syrup and lemon juice to the banana.
  3. Whisk Eggs until light and fluffy. Slowly add in sugar and continue whisking until completely combined. Add in cream and milk and whisk. Stir in Banana mixture.
  4. Pour into prepared Ice Cream maker and follow instructions.
  5. Just before the ice cream is done, add in the strawberries.
  6. Transfer Ice Cream to a 1 quart freezer safe container and let harden for several hours or overnight.
I used fresh strawberries instead of frozen strawberries. I cut them up, sprinkled them with some sugar and waited an hour for the liquids to run. Then I separated the liquid and strawberries.
Cut your strawberries into small pieces. The frozen chunks of strawberries are not much fun to bite into.


  1. This looks delightful Karyn!

      Thanks Dorothy. It was really good. I wish I still had some… Good thing I’m working on a new dessert

  2. Oohhh… I didn’t know the KitchenAid had an ice-cream maker attachment. Dangerous!

    • Karyn Granrud Karyn Granrud says:

      Yep! Just dump the cream mixture into it and let it go for 30 minutes or so. It does all the work. No need to buy another appliance for the countertop.

  5. Yummilicious is the word!

  6. After the liquids run, you have strawberry syrup. I use it in pancakes.
