Strawberry Ice Cream

Recipe by

This super easy yet elegant recipe came from Tsippy Nussbaum by way of Limor Decter. I was skeptical about the simplicity of the preparation, but it really works and results in a light, refreshing, frozen dessert. Please note that this recipe uses raw egg.

Editor's note: In-shell pasteurized eggs may be used safely without cooking.

1 pound (450g) fresh strawberries, washed and trimmed
1 cup (200g) sugar
1 large egg white
  • Put the strawberries in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Process until the strawberries are completely puréed, scraping down the sides of the bowl a few times to get all the pieces puréed.
  • Pour the purée into the bowl of a stand mixer. Add the sugar and egg white and use the whisk to mix on low speed for two minutes. Cover the bowl and mixer with plastic wrap and then turn the speed up to high. Mix for 8 full minutes; the mixture will become very light and fill the entire bowl.
  • Cover and leave the bowl in the freezer for 8 hours or overnight. Store in the freezer for up to one week.

​Yield: 12 to 15 servings
