Ingredients
Fresh strawberries & Oreo cookies ice cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 cups heavy cream, divided
  • Pinch of salt
  • ⅔ cup strawberry puree ( Wash and chop fresh strawberries and puree them in blender. You can keep half in chunks and half in puree form if you prefer strawberry pieces in your ice cream)
  • 10 Oreo cookies, crushed to bite size pieces or smaller
  • 5 large egg yolks
Strawberry vodka sauce:
  • 4-5 strawberries, chopped
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ - ½ cup vodka
Instructions
  1. In a medium saucepan, warm the milk, sugar, 1 cup heavy cream and salt.
  2. Now pour the remaining 1 cup heavy cream into a large bowl and set the strainer over the top of this bowl.
  3. In another separate bowl, whisk the egg yolks and then add little warmed up milk. Stir and pour it all into the remaining infused milk by scraping all the egg mix.
  4. Cook the custard on medium heat, stirring constantly with a heatproof spatula, until the mixture thickens and coats the spatula. It's done when you run your finger over the spatula and it should leave a mark that shouldn't flow back.
  5. Immediately strain the mixture into the cream, then stir the mixture over an ice bath until cool. Add the strawberry puree and gently mix it.
  6. Cover the mixture and refrigerate it thoroughly for few hours or preferably overnight, then freeze it in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. While churning the ice cream in ice cream mixture, from the top slowly add the crushed Oreo cookie pieces.
  7. Meanwhile for sauce, Cook strawberries and sugar in a small pan. Let strawberries leave all the juices. Using back of wooden spatula, break them until you get a thick syrup. Add vodka and let the alcohol burn. Once cooled, keep the syrup in airtight container in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
  8. When ice cream is ready, cover it tightly and freeze until firm. Freeze at least 2-3 hours before serving to get hard ice cream or have it soft serve style immediately.
  9. Serve ice cream with few crushed Oreo cookies and strawberry vodka sauce.
