Recipe: Strawberry Ice Cream

Strawberry ice cream recipe

It’s strawberry season here in New England, and my daughters and I love going to pick!  We just finished using the remaining strawberries from our last picking adventure.  This time we decided to make something we had never made before:  Strawberry Ice Cream!  It was a big hit all around.

Here is the recipe:

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup milk (we used 1%)
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, mashed (puree them if you prefer a smoother consistency)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Add all ingredients to a large mixing bowl.  Whisk until all ingredients are mixed.
  2. Add mixture to an ice cream maker.
  3. Allow ice cream maker to run for about 25 minutes, or until thickened to your liking.
  4. Store in an airtight container in the freezer.
  5. Enjoy!
