Roasted Strawberry Ice Cream

Celebrate the strawberry season with this homemade Roasted Strawberry Ice Cream! The recipe features a vanilla ice cream base swirled with roasted strawberry sauce and sweet basil lime pesto. Made without eggs, the Philadelphia-style vanilla ice cream base is light in texture and intense in taste. Strawberries are in peak season now, and roasting them with sugar is a delicious technique that I update with a pop of real vanilla beans and balsamic vinegar sprinkled on before roasting. The sweet basil lime pesto delivers fresh and bright notes that balance out the flavors.

It’s a bit of a project since you have to make the vanilla ice cream base as well as the strawberry sauce and basil lime pesto. Once made, just swirl the three flavors together, creating a vibrant and delicious frozen treat. For this recipe, you will need an ice cream maker. If you are using the one with a freezer bowl, make sure to freeze it for at least 24 hours before making the ice cream.

To make the Roasted Strawberry Ice Cream, you will need the following ingredients:
