Roasted Strawberry Ice Cream

Creamy homemade ice cream with roasted strawberries throughout.

I know it was days ago, but let’s discuss Monday since that was an unusual day for me. Shall we? I started out by going out shopping alone. That’s such a rarity and I honestly don’t mind taking the kids but it limits what I can do for how long. Plus, the mall doesn’t open until 10 and that would mean rushing around for 30 minutes and speeding back to pick up my oldest from school. So, I finally got to go to the mall and a handful of other places alone and on a regular school day.

Of course I did the dumbest thing starting out… I went to Target and tried on bathing suits. Trying on clothes is bad enough sometimes, but bathing suits?! That’s a whole other level of awful. You have this idea in your head how you want to look and how you want the suit to fit and of course that never happens. Or at least in my case. I mean I’m not a supermodel. I have my flaws. Suits are too big, too small, in between sizes, just awful. The list goes on. I did finally cave and buy one as an option and keeping my fingers crossed it’s not horrible because I’m headed some place warm real soon and may need that swim suit.

You know what doesn’t suck? Shoe shopping. Yep… did that too.  I never wear heels but I get a kick out of trying them on in the store. When my oldest daughter is with me, we find the most absurd shoes and I’ll try them on. We get a kick out of it. I left with two pairs of sneakers and am still contemplating over one of them. I have 60 days to mull it over. I’m super indecisive. They’re cute but I just don’t know. I need to wear them around the house for a bit to decide. The other will be my workout sneakers. They’re basically the same exact thing as another pair I already have but we’re a no shoe house so I need an in house only pair. Me and my rules…

There was also a visit to the dentist, which quite frankly is kind of relaxing. I mean it’s weird because I don’t think anyone ever really enjoys going to the dentist, but it’s quiet and no one is asking for things of me. Can I have a drink/snack etc. No one needs to be changed. I just lay there and let them take care of my teeth. Of course on this particular occasion I needed some novocain. I have a love/hate relationship with it. Obviously if you’re getting it it’s so you don’t feel what’s going on, but the first shot didn’t work so they gave me a second shot which sort of finally started to work. By the time I got home the Mr was laughing at me and asking me to say silly things because he swears I sound like Sean Connery after novocain. Lovely.

Then there was dinner and I couldn’t feel half of my mouth or open my mouth up wide enough to get a piece of French toast in. It was interesting to say the least and not comfortable.

Oh and speaking of dinner. I have this new electric nonstick griddle. It was a splurge and I totally love it even after just two uses. French toast cooked up beautifully and cooking a large batch of bacon was a breeze. Plus, there’s this awesome hole for the fat to drip through so your bacon isn’t cooking in bacon grease and splattering a ton. Don’t worry, there’s a nifty tray for the grease to hang out in until you discard it or chill to use later. The electric griddle totally beats using the stove top one which honestly was a royal pain in the butt to use. That sucker is absolutely getting the boot soon. If you’re in the market for a new griddle, I highly recommend checking out the Broil King. I’m not being paid to say that – I just love it.

So this ice cream…You need to make a batch of roasted strawberries and have some extra to use as topping. Because trust me, you want the strawberries in and on this. It just makes it that much more irresistible. Don’t fear the custard base for ice cream. I promise, using eggs makes homemade ice cream worlds better than without. It’s creamier, softer and so much more flavorful. I’ll never go back to making ice cream without eggs… unless it’s sherbet because those usually don’t call for eggs.

I wish I had a double batch of this because it was that tasty. It’s a basic vanilla ice cream with dollops of roasted strawberries tossed in during the churning process. Strawberries in ever bite. And I’m not taking teeny tiny bits of strawberries. I’m taking big sweet slices of amazing roasted strawberries in every bite. Not even just one strawberry, but many. This ice cream is packed with sweet goodness and topped off with more roasted strawberries and sauce for an over the top delicious treat. The only thing that would make this even better – homemade whipped cream. But sadly I didn’t have any heavy cream to spare. Next time.

If you love strawberries, you need this ice cream in your life!

    This might just be my favorite ice cream I’ve ever seen!! I wish I had time to make it before Florida, but maybe it’s a good thing I don’t because I’d probably eat the whole batch :)

    Trying on bathing suits is always horrible, but I am convinced that the Target dressing rooms have fat mirrors / the worst lighting ever. I don’t think I’ll ever go back there for a bathing suit after a mildly traumatizing experience a few years ago.

    And this ice cream…. Please send me the batch!

      Old Navy was worse than Target believe it or not. I swear their sizes change yearly.

    I made a batch of roasted strawberries and they were to die for. I’ve got more in the oven now for my post, which is coming soon. I topped my ice cream with them, and I was in heaven. Your ice cream looks delicious!

    I can tell I’m single and not a mom when I read “shopping alone” thinking you meant without some girlfriends with you, instead of kids. I bet that does make it quite a different experience! Loving this ice cream by the way. Never seen a roasted strawberry ice cream before!

      Rachel — May 15, 2013 at 3:49 pm

      It makes SUCH a difference. Not that I mind shopping with them but alone is a nice change of pace.

    I hate shopping for clothes! Target is the worst too, their dressing rooms with the mirrors and lights are horrible!
    Love this ice cream, these roasted strawberries must add so much flavor!

    You totally crack me up on the swim suit shopping at Target. That was where I bought my last 2 suits from 4 years ago and while I’m in need of new ones, my body is not ready for that, so I’ll just make some roasted strawberries and ice cream and call it good :)

      I don’t think we’re ever ready for new suits. It’s such a horrible experience.

    I agree with you 100% that custard-based ice cream is the way to go! I absolutely love how smooth, rich, and creamy it makes the final product. I’m usually not a fruity ice cream kind of girl, but this version, with the roasted strawberries and that sauce on top, is giving me some major cravings! I’ve literally been thinking about it all day since I saw it!
    Did you make your own sauce?
