Strawberry Ice Cream Anyone?

Yesterday I bought a pack of strawberries in the supermarket, which came from Spain. My mouth was watering seeing the red fruits. When I reached home, I ate 1 piece of the strawberries but I was disappointed as it was not delicious as I thought. It sounds that strawberries not in season are not good compared to the one we got here in summer. How to make strawberries to be tasty? The package of strawberries was 500 grams. I didn´t want to throw them in the bin and so I was searching in my kitchen again for ingredients that would go with strawberries. I thought of making smoothies out of those fruits but I was not craving for a smoothie. I found an open can of coconut cream and condensed milk leftover from drinking hot condensed milk before sleeping, in the fridge. I was thinking of an ice cream and so I made. I made ice cream and it looks good. It is still in the freezer now. I put it in the bread loaf for freezing. I will post the photo when I have finished charging my Ipad as I used this gadget for taking photos when making this strawberry and coconut ice cream. Have you eaten strawberry ice cream with coconut before? What kind of ice cream do you love? I hope you are all well. Thanks for dropping by.

That's a great idea! In Florida, the strawberries are always in season. I have some in the house right now. I love pistachio ice cream, butter pecan, fudge ripple, caramel ripple, or French vanilla.

So it is always warm in Florida @DianneN? That´s great. I have not heard of a fudge ripple and a caramel ripple ice cream. They sound delicious.

@thelme55 Yes, in South Florida. It can get cool some nights, but not by much. They are delicious!

It looks yummy in the photo. I do not like strawberry ice cream at all but I bet homemade ice cream is much better the store bought.

We tasted the ice cream mixture before freezing it and it was so delicious. Yes, homemade ice cream is still better than a store bought one @shaggin

I can imagine that the ice-cream will be tasty. I was surprised, however, that you bought strawberries at this time of the year. They aren't only tasteless but also full of chemicals. Consider the long way they have to travel! Better wait until June when you can buy strawberries at the market fresh from the fields.

@MALUSE I was surprised of myself too as I was not thinking much when I bought the strawberries. I was just craving and the red color was so inviting. The strawberry ice cream that I just made was so delicious. Hubby and I tasted the ice cream mixture before I froze it.

Strawberries are not good in this season. I have seen strawberries at Aldi, they come from Spain, I know they are tasteless. I would have prepared a cheesecake or a shortcake.

That was exactly bought from Aldi @LadyDuck and it was indeed tasteless. I have to remind myself when I see strawberry again in the supermarket during winter time.

@thelme55 They had the same at Migros and they were more expensive there, but you had the possibility to taste before buying. I tried one and it was tasteless.

Young coconut? I haven't tasted ever a strawberry ice cream with young coconut. But I love strawberry, be it ice cream, pastry, cakes or beverages. Yogurt too, with strawberry, how I love it.

@thelme55 Oh, the cream type. It doesn't taste nice to me. We tried the famous brand here of that and we hate the cooked veggies with that.

I remember when I was young and spent the night at my grandparent's, we went to the store for one thing, who knows what, but they had a blue light special on ice cream makers. Grandma bought one and when we got home, she made strawberry ice cream. It was sooooo good.

Snow ice cream @TRBRocks420.? Is it really made of snow or it is just a name? I have not heard about a snow ice cream before.

That looks so nice. There are many fruits and vegetables that you can now buy year round but usually they are tastier if it's the right season for them. Enjoy your ice-cream.

@JudyEv That sounds new to me. I don´t think I have eaten salted caramel ice cream. I have to check that out in the Gelateria in our city when they are open. As of now the Italian owner of my favorite ice cream coffee shop in the city is still closed for their winter vacation.

I like frozen yogurt, with banana, pecan, and palms. Your idea of the icecream was creative, you got the chance to look at what you got, you thought about a way to mix them together, you got a nice interesting icecream. Good work. Your creativity can help in many problems, not just food :-)

Strawberries are not good now. Their taste isn't good at all. I love strawberry ice cream, but I eat it in the summer. Not now.
