National Strawberry Ice Cream Day | Strawberry Hazelnut Ice Cream – The Foodie Patootie

National Strawberry Ice Cream Day | Strawberry Hazelnut Ice Cream

 Vanilla ice cream with strawberry syrup and rainbow sprinkles. That has been, and will always be, my favorite ice cream combo. The times I deviate are great times indeed, but I then miss my tried and true.

For National Strawberry Ice Cream Day, I ALMOST (thisclose) just whipped together my favorite flavors and called it a day. This would have involved buying vanilla ice cream, buying strawberry syrup, buying rainbow sprinkles and composing them for a nice photo.

That’s called cheating, folks. I had to actually make something.

 Thanks to Kevin & Amanda, this ice cream was that thing. I really want the ice cream maker attachment for my KitchenAid stand mixer, but right now, it’s just a dream. With the food holidays quickly approaching and creeping up on me, I had to think fast.

Enter: Google. I did a quick search for ways to make ice cream without an ice cream maker and came across one of my favorite blogs, Their method seemed to be the easiest, most cost-effective, and wouldn’t take up a lot of time at all.

Armed with strawberries, Heath toffee bar pieces, and a little bit of chocolate syrup, I created this ice cream. It was perfect for mid-day during one of the hot days in our Florida winter. Thanks for that, weather.

    That’s awesome!!!! I now want Ice Cream before 9am, thanks! On a side note, I have an ice cream maker, not the kitchenaide attachment, but a nice Cuisinart one, that never ever ever comes out of the box.

      I plan on getting one! But, there are so many ways to make ice cream without an ice cream maker and I have a bunch of ice cream food holidays so I think I’ll take one by one until I run out of methods and need to buy a maker to make my life a little easier, haha.

    It’s kinda strange that National Strawberry Ice Cream Day is in the dead of winter where strawberries aren’t really in season in most places, but you know what? With ice cream that looks like this, who cares? Love it!

    • Jennifer — January 15th, 2014 @ 11:26 pm

      Haha, that’s what I said! Same thing with the Peach Melba. Peaches are just now back in grocery stores around me, but they aren’t at the peak of season. These food holidays sometimes don’t make any sense, lol.

    Oh well, bravo to you for making this the theme of your blog in 2014, despite it not making sense some days 🙂 I’m really digging this new direction, it’s so fun to see how you’re cooking your way through this adventure!

      Thanks so much, Lori! I always appreciate reading your comments.
