  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream (very cold)
  • 1 tbsp vodka
  • 2 ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp almond extract
  • 1 lb strawberries (leaves trimmed and sliced)
  1. Puree strawberries in a food processor or blender
  2. Place pureed strawberries in a saucepan over medium heat; cook for about 10 minutes and stir occasionally reduced by 1/3. Set aside to cool, if necessary, place in fridge while ice cream churns.

  7. Once ice cream is made, gently mix ice cream with spatula to ensure strawberries are completely combined.
  8. Place ice cream mixture in freezer safe, rectangular container.

    So what is the purpose of the Vodka? I know it isn't much but would this be a big person ice cream because of the Vodka?

    • Swerve

      Hi Heidi, The vodka is in the recipe to help produce a smooth texture. Hope this helps! Thanks for stopping by our site!

  • Roseann

    Do you have a suggestion on how to make this if you don’t own an ice cream maker? Thanks

    • Swerve

      Hi Roseann, You could try making this recipe with the steps from this ice cream:

  • Lisa

    I made this tonight with my cuisinart ice-100. I tweaked the recipe a little by cooking up a custard with three egg yolks and a half a cup of milk. then I put the custard through a fine mesh strainer into the 1 cup of cold milk and swerve in the ice bath and let it chill. I cut the cream back to 1 1/2 Cups. It was amazing!!! My son loved it as well. Thanks so much!

  • AlexStoks

    And, it is seriously so simple to whip up! Plus, even though is an eggless strawberry ice cream , the mix of ingredients make for such a creamy strawberry ice cream recipe !

  • cynthia sessaman

    I wonder if you can substitute the whole milk with almond milk?

    • Swerve

      Hi Cynthia. It might come out a little icy but it should work. Thank you for the question!

  • Carla

    Very good recipe! Thanks! Even my husband liked it, and, generally, he doesn't like or eat sugar substitutes. Next time, I'll probably eat a few of the strawberries before preparing the rest for the mix, because the mixture was a little large for my Cuisinart ice cream maker and necessitated extra clean-up. Also, I'll try adding an extra tablespoon of Vodka to keep the ice cream from freezing hard. If I leave it out to soften, I may forget to eat it and forget to put it back in the freezer.
