  1. this looks perfect! i haven't tried an egg-free s/b ice cream recipe yet but i sure will now!

  2. Refreshing strawberry ice-cream! Can it be done without an ice-cream maker?

  3. oh wow this looks so simple! such a beautiful shade of pink!

  4. Really fabulous ice cream, I love that there are no eggs!

  5. I love no cook ice cream recipes - there is so much egg yolk and cholesterol in the custard ones! That's no good.

  6. I just love the simplicity of this ice cream, strawberry i totally agree.

  7. Ooh nice! Like LimeCake said, it's a lovely pink! But sadly, I don't have an ice-cream maker.

  8. @KY: Here is the link on "How to make ice cream without a machine". http://www.davidlebovitz.com/2007/07/making-ice-crea-1/

  9. Only making my internal ice cream machine battle harder! I really want one... then again, I'm worried about actually making ice cream!

  10. I can't wait to try the recipe!! I just made homemade ice cream for the first time two nights ago w.o. a machine. It's pretty easy, it just requires a lot of handling. I think the consistency might be better with a machine. I'll have to buy one if I keep finding good recipes like this one =)

  11. This actually looks easy to make! Thanks for sharing!

  12. Strawberry ice cream is one of God's gifts (even for a non-believer like me).

    Thanks for posting. And Angie, thanks for the machine free technique link.

  13. I love that this is no-cook! Tempering eggs and making custard usually turns me off of homemade ice cream. This looks wonderful!

  14. no egg ice-cream! I love the idea

  15. You could also make it vegan by using soy creamer instead. Silk Soy Creamer is a good one, and you can change it up by using one of the flavored ones

  16. This makes me want the ice cream attachment for my kitchen-aid even more, *starts shaking the gifts under the tree to see if it might be there*

  17. Just made this recipe in my brand new ice cream maker --- it's a hit! So easy, perfect pink color, and freshest strawberry flavor!
