Waitrose Homemade Strawberry Buttermilk Ice Cream Recipe

Waitrose Homemade Strawberry Buttermilk Ice Cream Recipe

Posted by Jennifer | July 30, 2020

From our friends at Waitrose, here’s a delicious homemade strawberry buttermilk ice cream recipe, perfect for long warm summer days. A fresh sweet treat to make for all your friends and family to enjoy.

Makes 1 litre


425 ml double cream

100g caster sugar

3 tbsp honey

1 tsp vanilla bean paste

284ml tub buttermilk

For the strawberry ripple

350g strawberries

75g caster sugar

1/2 lemon, juice


1. To make the ice cream, pour the cream into a saucepan and stir in the sugar, honey and vanilla bean paste. Heat gently for a few minutes, stirring often, until the sugar has dissolved and the honey is completely mixed in. Remove from the heat and allow to cool completely.

2. Next , make the strawberry sauce. Cut each hulled strawberry into quarters and place into a saucepan along with the caster sugar and lemon juice. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10-12 minutes until the strawberries have broken down and are surrounded by a rich , red syrup. Push the strawberry mixture through a sieve into a measuring jug, discarding the pulp and seeds. Cool, then chill the sauce completely.

3. Add the buttermilk to the chilled cream mixture and freeze according to your ice cream maker’s instructions (if you don’t have an ice cream machine, see the tip below).

4. Layer the churned ice cream and almost all the strawberry sauce into a 1 litre tub, drizzling the top with the remaining sauce. Using a round -ended knife, gently swirl the sauce through the ice cream, then freeze until firm . Remove from the freezer 10 minutes before serving.

Waitrose Tip

If you dont have an ice cream maker, freeze the cream mixture in a freezerproof container for about 3 hours, beating well every 30 minutes or so until creamy, thickened and starting to freeze. Beat again, then continue from step 4 above.
