Strawberry Banana Ice Cream
1 pint organic strawberries, cleaned and hulled
1 extra-large banana
1 1/2 C cream
1 1/2 C milk
1-2 tablespoons honey
1-2 tablespoons dark rum (optional)
Blend the fruit and milk in a blender until the fruit is neatly pureed. Add all the other ingredients and mix well. Process in an ice cream maker. Makes ~1 quart. Serve and beat the heat. Note: the small amount of honey combined with the fruit produces just a hint of sweetness, which is what I really enjoy these days. If you'd like a more traditionally sweeter ice cream, increase the honey to at least 1/4-1/3 cup. The rum need not be included, but having a little alcohol is handy to prevent the ice cream from freezing rock hard due to the lower sugar content.
