  • In a heavy bottomed medium size sauce pan whisk the egg yolks and sugar together until they become a pale yellow.
  • Add the milk, heavy cream and vanilla extract to the sauce pan and whisk until combined.
  • Heat on medium until it comes to a boil while continually whisking to prevent scorching.
  • Slightly reduce the heat and continue to whisk the ice cream custard until it thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon. Once you can run a finger down the back of the coated spoon and leave a trail the custard is done.
  • Remove the sauce pan from the heat, place the ice cream custard in a container or bowl and allow to cool to room temperature.
  • Once room temperature cover tightly and chill in the refrigerator along with the balsamic strawberry sauce until well chilled, at least 4 to 5 hours or overnight.
  • Once the ice cream custard has been chilled churn the ice cream custard in an ice cream maker following the manufacturer's directions.
  • After the ice cream has been churned scoop half the vanilla ice cream into a lidded container. Spread half the strawberry balsamic sauce over the top of the ice cream.
  • Scoop the remaining ice cream into the container then spread the remaining strawberry balsamic sauce over the top of the ice cream.
  • With a knife swirl the strawberry balsamic sauce into the ice cream. Cover the container with a tight-fitting lid and freeze over night before serving.
  • Makes 1 ½ quarts of Strawberry Balsamic Ice Cream.


  • Special equipment needed: Ice Cream Maker
  • Serve with fresh strawberries or alternately you can double the ingredients for the Strawberry Balsamic Sauce and reserve half to use as ice cream topping.
