I am late this year. Normally I would be posting at least my second ice cream recipe at this date because I am obsessed with ice cream. This month’s love blog hop is helping me get back on track as Ice Cream is the theme this June. I have made lots of unusual flavors in the past but I wanted something a bit more traditional this time, and add a kick of course!
Strawberries were calling my name. I have been eating them like crazy lately. I already a few recipes posted for strawberry ice cream but I think it holds its own. I went with a Strawberry Ice Cream that also contains Sour Cream and chose to add a bit of punch with a touch of Chili Peppers flakes. The hot factor is very subtle but it is there, a perfect ending I think.
Ξ Strawberry Sour Cream Ice Cream and Chili Peppers Ξ
adapted from Two Peas and Their Pod, original recipe from The Perfect Scoop
1 pound fresh strawberries, rinsed and hulled
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon vodka or kirsch
1 cup sour cream
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 tsp chili pepper flakes
Place all the ingredients in a blender and pulse until almost smooth, but still slightly chunky. Refrigerate the mixture for at least one hour. Freeze in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
June is #icecreamlove month!
