Strawberry Gelato

You'll love this smooth and creamy gelato with bright strawberry flavor and just a hint of sea salt and honey. —Shelly Bevington, Hermiston, Oregon
  • Total Time
    Prep: 10 min. + chilling Process: 25 min.
  • Makes
    12 servings (1-1/2 quarts)


  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2-1/2 cups fresh strawberries (about 12 ounces), halved
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice


  • Place first 6 ingredients in a blender; cover and process until blended. While processing, gradually add cream, processing just until combined. Remove to a bowl; stir in lemon juice. Refrigerate, covered, until cold, about 4 hours.
  • Fill cylinder of ice cream maker no more than two-thirds full; freeze according to manufacturer’s directions. (Refrigerate any remaining mixture until ready to freeze.)
  • Transfer ice cream to freezer containers, allowing headspace for expansion. Freeze until firm, 3-4 hours.

Test Kitchen tips
  • This recipe makes 4-3/4 cups of strawberry mixture before freezing and yields about 6 cups after freezing. If you have a 1-quart ice cream maker, you will probably need to make the gelato in two batches. Be sure to follow your manufacturer's instruction manual.
  • Corn syrup and honey contribute to the smoothness of this frozen treat by preventing the formation of ice crystals.
  • Fresh raspberries or blackberries can be substituted for the strawberries. If your berries are tart, you may want to add a touch more sugar or honey.

      Made it this morning. In place of lemon juice, we switched to lime, using the juice from two and added the zest. Oh My Gosh! Talk about yummy!

      This has a wonderful strawberry flavor and is not too sweet. It is easy to prepare. It did not all fit in my ice cream maker, so I had to freeze it in two batches.
