The key to this no churn strawberry ice cream is making sure your evaporated milk has been chilled well in the fridge and is really cold, this makes it much easier to whip.

  1. Hull the strawberries then whizz them to make a purée, then stir in the lemon juice.
  2. Put the chilled evaporated milk into a large bowl and whisk, with the sugar, on high speed for about 10 mins until it has thickened and the whisk leaves a trail.
  3. Stir through the strawberry purée and freeze until solid. Leave at room temperature for 10 mins before serving so it’s easy to scoop.
