Fruit Ice-Cream

On the day we made the Taro Cake in the South Arm Community Kitchen, it was an exceptional cold spring day with temperature as low as -5 degrees Celsius on the day low. Guess what, Lorna was demonstrating how to make Fruit Ice-Cream on that day. It is certainly a very cold treat for a very cold day.


Lorna brought some ice-cream which she made earlier for us to try. Look at this cute hello kitty strawberry ice-cream. It’s not only pleasant to the eyes, but it is creamy and taste wonderful. Many of members were asking Lorna on the cost of the ice cream maker and I think this demonstration has inspire some of the members to have the desire to get an ice-cream machine this summer, that includes me.


  • 1 1/4 cups sliced strawberries
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 cup homogenized milk
  • 250ml whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)

makingicecream-30-200x300This is Lorna’s ice-cream maker. It is a very simple machine with a pedal and a freezer bowl.
makingicecream-17-300x200Place the freezer bowl into the ice-cream machine and put the pedal in place. Pour the mixture into the freezer bowl, cover and start the machine.

Serve the ice-cream immediately with some strawberries or store in the freezer for enjoyment later.

Lorna, thank you for this ice-cream making demonstration. Hopefully, I can find room in my kitchen for an ice-cream maker. I’m certain that my kids will love this freshly home-made ice-cream in summer.

    If you have a KitchenAid stand mixer, you can get a freezer bowl to make ice cream with it. I don’t think it would cost much less than buying the Cuisinart, but it would be less to store in the cabinets. I’m thinking of trying it. It works on the same principle, a frozen bowl and paddle. It just uses the KitchenAid motor.

    I have Cuisinart ice cream machine but have not used it in ages, after seeing your post, I think it is time to take the ice cream machine out! Especially since strawberries are cheap again…yayyy!!

    hello suanne, i’d like to ask what’s homogenized milk? is there an alternative for that? thanks!

      Hi Twistedsunshine, homogenized milk in Canada is also known as whole milk which has 3.25% fat content. You can substitute it with half-and-half which has higher fat content (around 10%) for creamier ice-cream.
