Suzanne Dunaway's Foolproof Instant Ice Cream

Recipe Information
Ice cream made with fresh frozen fruits

Suzanne Dunaway


  • 2 cups (475 ml) fresh frozen strawberries or raspberries or peaches
  • (freeze your own with summer fruits - just add 1/2 cup (125 ml) sugar to 2 cups (475 ml) fruit and freeze)
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) additional sugar or a little more to taste
  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • tiny dash of vanilla
  • Remove fruit from freezer.
  • Place cream, sugar and vanilla in the bowl of a food processor.
  • Break up fruit with an ice pick.
  • Process cream until just thick. Do not liquify!
  • Add frozen fruit and process just until ice cream texture is reached, less than one minute.
  • Ice cream is now ready for a pretty dish and a great cookie.
I use this just before serving dessert at many dinner parties and people always ask about it. I almost hate to disappoint them as this takes second to prepare and tastes as if you worked for days.
