Strawberry Italian Ice~Fragola Ghiaccio
Perfect on a hot summer day!
|Yes, we have a Gelato Maker, not an Ice Cream Maker :-)|
1 pound fresh Strawberries
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
Juice of 1 lemon
1 egg white
Make a simple syrup. Bring water and sugar to a boil. Remove from heat once sugar is dissolved. Pour in a bowl and place in refrigerator to cool.
Purée the fresh strawberries. Add lemon juice and mix well.
Combine syrup and puree mixture. Cool for at least an hour. When cool, mix in one lightly whisked egg white then put mixture into ice cream maker.
Run ice cream maker per manufacturer instructions. Serve ice immediately or freeze for up to 3 hours.
(Instead of sugar, I used Splenda to save some calories)
