Ingredients
Makes: 2 small portions

  • 250ml single cream
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoons chopped fresh strawberries
  • 4 scoops ice cubes
  • 4 tablespoons coarse salt

Method
Prep:10min  ›  Extra time:10min freezing  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Combine the cream, sugar, vanilla and strawberries in a litre size resealable plastic bag. Press the air out of the bag, seal and shake bag to combine contents. Place the bag into a larger sized resealable plastic bag. Add the ice and salt to the larger bag, press the air out, and seal bag.
  2. Wrap bags in a tea towel. Shake continuously, until the contents of the small bag thicken into soft ice cream, 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. Rinse the small bag quickly under cold water to wash off salt. Lay the ice cream filled baggie on a flat surface. Use a wooden spoon handle to push the ice cream down to the bottom corner of the baggie. Snip off the corner, and squeeze ice cream into a bowl.

Other ideas

Try other mix-ins too such as crushed chocolate, chopped fudge or honeycomb.

Note

The salt is not consumed.
