I have tried a little of everything, yogurt, milk, tums, not eating anything acidic- and frankly the one thing that can bring a little relief is ICE CREAM! Yummmmm! But yet another complication of living in another country is finding that perfect flavor that matches the expectations you have in your head. All I have wanted for the past three weeks has been a bowl of strawberry ice cream- the good stuff! Not the kind that tastes fake or overly sugary- just good stuff with chunks of berries... So after searching store after store and coming up empty hand or unwilling to pay the nine bucks for a tiny container, I gave up!
But after yet another bout of heartburn this afternoon I took to my fridge and pinterest to see what I could come up with... Scrounging up the leftover strawberries from breakfast this morning and splash of cream left from fondue night last week, I mashed it all up with a bit of vanilla, some milk and a couple spoonfuls of sugar. I poured the beautiful liquid into a doubled up ziplock bag, threw it into a giant ziplock bag filled with ice and salt and shook it until I couldn't take it anymore! I then tossed the ziplock bag filled with that now firm wonderful mixture into the freezer to firm up a bit more. 45 minutes later I had this:
|Heck yeah! Strawberry ice cream get in my belly!!!|
