Make the Ice Cream Base:

In a large mixing bowl, combine the heavy cream, whole milk, and vanilla extract.

Gradually add the strawberry puree to the cream mixture, stirring continuously until fully combined.

Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer’s instructions until

it reaches a soft-serve consistency.

Transfer the churned ice cream into a freezer-safe container and freeze for at least 4 hours or until

firm.

Prepare the Meringue:

Preheat your oven to 200°F (93°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a clean, dry mixing bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer on medium speed until frothy.

Add the cream of tartar and continue beating until soft peaks form.

Gradually add the granulated sugar, one tablespoon at a time, while beating on high speed until stiff

peaks form and the meringue is glossy.

Gently fold in the vanilla extract.

Use a piping bag or a spoon to create small meringue dollops or shapes on the prepared baking

sheet.

Bake the meringues in the preheated oven for 1.5 to 2 hours, or until they are dry and crisp. Turn off

the oven and let the meringues cool completely inside the oven with the door slightly ajar.

Assemble the Strawberry Meringue Ice Cream:

Scoop the strawberry ice cream into serving bowls.

Crumble a few meringue pieces over the ice cream for added texture and sweetness.

Garnish with fresh strawberry slices, mint leaves, and a dusting of powdered sugar for a touch of

elegance.

Tips for Perfect Strawberry Meringue Ice Cream:

 

Fruit Freshness:

Use ripe, juicy strawberries for the best flavor. Freshly picked strawberries provide a natural sweetness

and vibrant color to the ice cream.

Meringue Mastery:

Ensure the egg whites are at room temperature before beating to achieve the best volume and

stability in your meringue.

Texture Variation:

For an interesting twist, try adding some crushed nuts or chocolate chips to the ice cream just before

the final freezing stage.

Storage:

Store the meringue in an airtight container to keep it crisp. The ice cream can be stored in the freezer

for up to two weeks.

Nutritional Benefits:

 

Vitamin C:

Strawberries are rich in Vitamin C, which boosts the immune system and promotes skin health.

Calcium:

The dairy in the ice cream provides calcium, essential for strong bones and teeth.

Protein:

Egg whites in the meringue offer a source of protein, aiding in muscle repair and growth.

Conclusion

 

Strawberry Meringue Ice Cream is a delightful fusion of flavors and textures, perfect for dessert lovers

seeking a refreshing and elegant treat. The combination of creamy strawberry ice cream and light,

crispy meringue creates a sensory delight that is both satisfying and memorable. Enjoy making this
