Strawberry-Banana-Ginger Ice Cream

This dish has a great, refreshing combination of flavors and is super easy to make if you have an ice cream maker. It's still possible without one (that's how I made it), but be prepared to be on your toes for at least 5 hours. I conveniently delegated most of the stirring duty to my sister, so things worked out pretty well.

1 1/2 cups non-fat milk
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
8 oz sugar
5 ripe bananas
2-3 cups of fresh strawberries
1-1 1/2 tbsp of ginger (depending on how strong you want it to be)

Mash strawberries and bananas in a freezer-friendly bowl (make sure to get rid of any large lumps as they will interfere with the freezing process). Add milk, cream, ginger, and sugar, and mix very well (use an electric blender if possible). Freeze for thirty minutes, then stir vigorously. Return to freezer, stirring every hour until the ice cream has set. (Depending on the quality of your freezer, the process might require several hours or a night of setting.)

This recipe serves 8 and goes great with fresh fruit. Enjoy!
