Beat thoroughly with an electric hand-held beater or process quickly in a food processor. Return to the container and freeze again. 7. Repeat the freezing and beating process at least 2 to 4 times to ensure that there are no ice crystals. 8. Freeze until firm. 9. To serve, place scoops of ice cream in individual glasses and decorate with almond biscuits or meringues or pile scoops of ice cream into a bowl and decorate with strawberry greenery and flowers. Makes about 1 litre. Variations Replace the strawberry purée with the same quantity (800 ml (3 1/5 cups)) of fresh peach, apricot or banana purée (sprinkle banana purée with lemon juice to prevent discoloration). Other berries, youngberries or boysenberries for instance, or raspberries are excellent substitutes for the strawberries.
