Fresh Strawberry Ice Cream…Yes Please!

When you spend your Saturday morning doing this…You may find yourself making this Saturday afternoon!

Strawberry Ice Cream

The Usual Cast Of Characters

3 Cups fresh ripe strawberries, stemmed and sliced

4 Tablespoons lemon juice

1 1/2 Cups sugar, divided

1 1/2 Cups whole milk

2 3/4 Cup heavy cream

1 1/2 Teaspoons vanilla extract

The Steps to Glory

1. In a small bowl combine strawberries, lemon juice and 1/2 cup of sugar. Stir gentle and allow berries to macerate in juices for 1-2 hours. Strain berries, reserve juice and mash half of the berries.

2. In a mixing bowl, combine sugar and milk until dissolved. Stir in heavy cream, reserved strawberry juice, mashed strawberries and vanilla.

3. Turn on ice cream maker, pour mixture into freezer bowl and mix until thickened, about 20-25 minutes.

4. Five minutes before mixing is complete, add remaining strawberries and mix completely.

5. The Ice Cream will have a soft, creamy texture. If you desire a firmer consistency, transfer the ice cream to an airtight container and freeze for about 2 hours.

6. Grab a spoon and dig in!

  1. Memories in the making! That looks like so much fun and worth the effort.

    A few weeks ago, our next door neighbor took her daughter to pick strawberries. They shared fresh fruit and strawberry jam with us. 🙂
