Strawberry ice cream 2

Prep Time: 12 minutes
Chill Time: 2 – 24 hours
Ice Cream Maker Time: Approximately 25-30 minutes
Servings: Ten 1/2 cup servings

16 oz fresh strawberries (1 pint)
3 tbsp lemon juice
1/3 cup sugar

Ice Cream Base
1 cup milk
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2 cups heavy cream
1 tsp vanilla extract

Wash, stem, and slice strawberries.

Combine strawberries, lemon juice, and 1/3 cup sugar in a small airtight container.

Place strawberry mixture in the fridge for at least 2 hours. Leaving the strawberries, in the fridge longer will enhance the flavor.
Ice Cream Base

Mix milk and sugar, allowing the sugar to dissolve (mix about 1 -2 minutes with a hand mixer or whisk).

Drain strawberries, adding juice to milk mixture. Set strawberries aside.

Stir in heavy cream and vanilla.

Pour mixture into your ice cream maker.

Mix about 20-25 minutes.

Add about half the strawberries to ice cream mixture (use the other half as a fresh berry topping).

Mix 5 minutes more in your ice cream maker.


Note: Make sure the strawberry mixture is very cold before adding to mix or it won’t freeze. Mash or dice strawberries for better consistency. Use 1/4 cup sugar in strawberries and 1/3 cup sugar in the ice cream mix.
