December 31st, 2012 | Pink Champagne Ice Cream

Oh my it’s been a while! My laptops battery.. um kinda exploded. Inside my laptop. But I got a new battery for Christmas and I’m back in business!  So expect a few belated holiday-themed posts in the next week or so. I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday! With the New Year right around the corner I thought I’d share my pink champagne ice cream recipe – it’s one of my favourites.

Text-friendly copy:

♥ 1 cup finely chopped strawberries
♥ 1/2 cup puree strawberries
♥ 3 cups milk (I used lactose free)
♥ 2 tbsp cream (again, lactose free)
♥ 1 cup sugar
♥ 1 cup + 2 tbsp pink champagne
♥ 1 tsp vanilla

• Boil about half a bottle of pink champagne. (Alcohol doesn’t freeze, this will help remove some of the alcohol.)

• Combine all the liquid ingredients into a large pitcher and stir. Add the sugar and puree and stir again. Slowly pour the mixture into your ice cream maker. and the sugar into a large pitcher and stir.

• My ice cream maker takes about 20 minutes, at the last 5 minute mark add the chopped strawberries. It should be a soft-serve consistency when done. Put it into a freezer safe container and freeze for at least 30 minutes before serving.

Happy New Years everyone!

    Sorry, this recipe is throwing me off…is the half bottle of champagne in addition to the cup and 2tbsp?

      Nope, you just need to boil the champagne first because alcohol doesn’t freeze then measure out the 1c 2tbsp from the boiled champagne! :)

    can you respond to the last question? how much champagne should I add (half a bottle of 1 cup)??!?!?!

      Hi Teri, you need to boil the champagne first because alcohol doesn’t freeze and this will help burn off some of the alcohol. Boil half a bottle. As it boils some of it will evaporate and you’ll have less liquids so that’s why I suggest boiling half a bottle to make sure you have enough! From that then measure out 1 cup and 2 tbsp champagne for the recipe. Hope that makes a bit more sense!
