Strawberry and Rhubarb Pie IceCream--REALLY!!

I have a Cuisinart Ice Cream maker and have loads of fun making different kinds of ice cream.  One of my favourites is Rhubarb Pie Ice Cream.  Any kind of pie will do (well not a steak and kidney).  Apple pie, rhubarb pie, pumpkin pie........cherry pie........You get the baked fruit in the delicious syrupy sauce and then chunks of flakey pastry...or you can use a crumb topped pie and have apple crumble pie ice cream.....
It really is so easy.  Here's the recipe.

2 cups whipping cream (not whipped)
1 cup homo milk
2/3 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla.
 1/2  - 3/4 cup Whatever bits and pieces you want to throw in...

Mix the first 4 ingredients together
Pour into frozen ice cream maker bucket
Turn on for 25 minutes.
Break up a piece of pie and toss it in for another 5 minutes
Place in tupperware in freezer.
You can add anything you like.  I save bits of brownies, vanilla cake,  cookie doughs. 
You can also use your favourite chocolate bar, just break it up and chuck it in.  At the cottage, my neighbour's grandson brings me over Crispy Crunch bars to make him ice cream with.


  1. Never even heard of a Cuisine Art ice-cream maker!

    YUMMMMY this little gal is so sweet!

  2. I love this! I've never heard of pie ice cream before but it is genius! I was recently in an ice cream parlour in Nottinghill where they offered me Vegemite Ice Cream which I have to say I declined! There is a wafer thin line....

  3. Ooh Yummo! Chania this sounds fabulous, I think I will have to invest in an ice-cream maker:) Thanks for sharing the recipe! ~ Tina xx

  4. Dang, I thought IT would leave an easy access link for you....

    HEY! Is that a P-E-O-N-Y ? Nice shot! Can we eat it too?

  5. Oy my! Chania that ice cream sounds terribly wicked, in fact all of the flavours you mentioned sound delicious. Once again my boys would gobble down every last morsel, not to mention me...

  6. Hello Chania,

    Strawberry and Rhubarb Pie Ice Cream sounds fabulous! I was just telling someone the other day how much I love Strawberry Rhubarb Pie. I like your twist on it. I do not have an ice cream maker (yet) but I am going to save the recipe you shared with us.

    Thank you!

  7. No fair, It's too hot to go to the store and you've made me crave ice cream. Now I'll have to have extreme moose tracks- my fave. no mint chocolate chip, no bunny tracks.....oh, no fair!


  8. In the hiccup of spring, rhubarb is in season in my neck of the woods. Just in time to collide with perfect is that?

  9. Chania...sounds are quite the little chef...wonderful little creation x

  10. Chania,
    Not fair, not fair at all...I want to live next door to you, I just know you would share your wonderful ice cream with e and my daughter...would you? Please pretty please!!

    ice cream looks great in my bird bowls, I have never heard of pie ice needs to be marketed :)

    I knew I would love it over here, bring your pie ice cream and I have the chocolate cake, yummers!!!

    Thank you for your wonderful comment about my bird dinnerware :)

  11. Ooo - this looks and sounds so yummy! If hubby saw this he would want some every breakfast, lunch and tea!

  12. Yum!! I'd like to acquire an ice cream maker. Love ice cream!!

  13. Oh my gosh, I'm going to have to make this very soon. My kids will be thrilled with any dish that has two of their favorite words in it, ice cream and pie! And we do happen to have a Cuisinart ice cream maker. Great investment because the ice cream really comes out yummy, very creamy. Thanks for the recipe. You now have two little fans at my house.

  14. Very tempting. I wish I had the patience to make ice cream. I blame my annoying machine but in truth the fault is mine.

  15. Yum, how do you think it would go being posted to

  16. Mmmmmm, love home made ice cream. and this one looks really special and yummy xx
