Berry Ice-cream

Is there anything more amazing than a rich, creamy, and custardy ice-cream on a hot summer day? Nah!!! I’m a sucker for anything sweet and I believe a scoop of ice-cream a day keeps MY doctor away 😛 !!

(Straw+Blue) berry juice is part of our daily regimen and to be frank we were kinda getting bored of it. So I decided to spin it up a bit which actually turned out to be a lil unhealthier than the previous version. But seriously, who cares. End of the day, it’s all about the taste right? I’ve tried my hands on ice-cream couple of times before but, this is a first for me using an ice-cream machine. The machine was on our summer shopping list and it finally got inaugurated today. Yayy!!! For those who wanna try this, it is a super simple recipe. No rocket science! All you need is some milk, eggs, sugar & fresh fruits !! Let’s get started !!


Here’s what you need:

  1. Heavy Cream – 1 cup
  2. Whole Milk -1 cup
  3. Egg Yolks – 5 nos
  4. Sugar – ¾ cup
  5. Vanilla Essence – ½ tsp
  6. Salt – a pinch
  7. Fresh Strawberries -½ lb
  8. Fresh Blueberries – ½ lb



  1. Combine heavy cream, whole milk & sugar in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Simmer for 5 min and remove it from heat (do not let the mixture boil)
  2. In a mixing bowl, beat egg yolks until it’s light, fluffy, and pale yellow
  3. To temper the egg yolks, slowly whisk (½ to 1 cup) of the hot milk mix (from step 1) into the yolks using a wire whisk
  4. Pour the mixture back into the saucepan with the remaining milk & cook it over low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture (custard) thickens and will coat the back of a spoon. It will take approximately take 5-8 mins.
  5. Remove the custard from heat, strain through a fine mesh strainer into a clean bowl
  6. Add vanilla essence and salt into the custard, mix it well and cover it using a plastic wrap and refrigerate it overnight
  7. Read the manufacturer’s instructions and keep your ice cream machine ready
  8. In a blender add fresh berries & make it into a smooth puree (strain the berry puree through a fine sieve)
  9. Add the berry mix into the chilled custard & mix it well
  10. Pour the above mix into the ice-cream machine and churn it
  11. Transfer ice cream to an air-tight container and freeze it in refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving.
