Roasted Strawberry Balsamic Ice Cream

It’s officially summer when I break out my ice cream machine. Honestly, of all the ridiculous kitchen gadgets that I own, this is the one I turn to almost weekly in the summer months. BL could live off ice-cream and I’m not far behind him. It’s the ultimate treat, a scoop or two while browsing Netflix is my favorite way to finish the day.

I can’t remember where I first heard about the idea of roasting fruit for ice cream, but my money is on Bon Appetit. Even though they rarely print vegetarian recipes, it’s still my favorite food magazine to pick up new techniques and trends, roasted fruit ice cream included.

The idea is that roasting the fruit brings out more of the natural sugars, intensifying the sweetness in each and every bite. Makes sense to me. If roasting vegetables makes they sweet and almost candy-like, why didn’t I think about applying the same concept to fruit?

This may be my most favorite ice cream flavor yet. Intensely rich roasted strawberries with a hint of balsamic vinegar. I kept things dairy-free by using a coconut base instead of heavy cream, which I think pairs really nicely with the strawberries and balsamic.

While this ice cream is a two-step process, the prep time is less than 10 minutes. Roast the berries, toss with balsamic and then puree into a sticky-sweet syrup. Use half in the ice cream and the rest to dollop on top.

      Yum! My family lives down the road from a strawberry farm, and it opens soon! I know exactly what I’ll be making with some of the first berries we pick this year (after I’ve eaten my body weight in the car on the way home 😉 ).

      I think your recipe says 2/3 cup strawberries divided instead of 2/3 cup sugar divided 🙂 Great Recipe!!

      OMG! This icecream sounds amazing! I keep meaning to try out roasted strawberries but they never last long enough to make it into the oven here – my 3 kids fight over the punnet of strawberries before I can even get them in the fridge, haha. Will have to sneak some strawberries past them so I can give this a try 😉
