5-Minute Strawberry Ice Cream

Category: Dessert
Style: Western
Difficulty: Easy
Portion: Serves 8

3/4 cup icing sugar
5 cup frozen strawberry
1-1/3 cup chilled whipping cream
fresh mint leaves, for garnish

Put strawberry in a food processor. Sprinkle with icing sugar. Process on high speed until strawberry resemble coarse sand.
While food processor is still running, pour whipping cream into the processor in a thin stream. Continue to process for another 2 minutes. You may need to stop processor and scrap down the side.
Mixture should resemble very thick milk shake. Serve immediately or freeze further for a firmer texture.
Serve with mint leaves as garnish.

You may need to do this recipe in batches if your food processor is not large enough to handle 5 cups of fruits.
Depending on the size of your strawberries, you may need to use more or less cream. Watch the consistency of the mixture and adjust accordingly.
You can also use other frozen fruits such as blueberries, mixed berries, mango etc. Adjust the amount of sugar for different fruits.
