Storage of Homemade Ice Cream of Any Kind
So, I make homemade ice cream a lot and I’ve tried storing my homemade ice cream in many different containers. I can honestly say that the best thing I’ve ever done is purchase ice cream containers made just for ice cream storage!
My favorite mini containers boast a silicone lid and are 6 oz each which is a perfect single-serve ice cream portion.
What makes these particular single-serve ice cream containers even better is their colored lids. When I make strawberry amaretto ice cream I use the mini containers with red silicone lids for strawberry amaretto ice cream. It kind of signals everyone what’s in the container.
The silicone does not stick to the ingredients inside the container and it comes off of the container with ease! Big win! Did I mention that these containers stack and fit great on doors, or in freezer drawers?
My favorite Quart containers also boast a tight-fitting, yet easy to remove silicone lid. You can purchase these in many different colors (the lids).
Quart containers are great because this recipe will make enough to fill a quart container plus 2 single-serve 6 oz containers! I’d grab a few of each. Plus, if you are an ‘ice-creamer’ you’ll love having your own quart to savor!
Ingredients for Strawberry Amaretto Ice Cream
First, and the big question I know everyone is going to ask, there is NOT alcohol in the recipe. However, if you prefer to add alcohol in you can.
Second, the recipe is nut-free but it does contain dairy products.
Third, you could add in many other berries, I have tried them all, many times over but the strawberry pairs flawlessly for a brilliant taste bite after bite. It’s kind of like a champagne and strawberry fairytale.
Fourth. Fresh strawberries complete this recipe, but Amaretto is the ingredient that supercharges the refreshing flavor. What you might not have expected is that I used no alcohol! You can, but I didn’t! Enjoy.
Last, food coloring is totally optional. I used it to amp up the color, but it does nothing to the taste. If you don’t want to use it you do not have to. However in the case that you do use it, purchase eye-appealing food coloring.
