Strawberry Chili Peppers Sour Ice Cream

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.
