This simple homemade Strawberry Ice Cream is bursting with fresh strawberry flavor. A perfect summer treat!
When I make homemade ice cream, I usually opt for chocolate. And the more mix-ins the better. But every once in awhile I get a hankerin’ for a simple fruit ice cream, and that is what happened a few weeks ago. I had some fresh strawberries in the fridge, so I decided to whip up some Strawberry Ice Cream. It is simple to make, and oh so yummy! What says summer more than a batch of homemade ice cream, especially when it’s loaded with fresh strawberries?
The base for this ice cream requires no cooking, so it really is quick to throw together. I have an older model of this ice cream maker, and I adore it. Making ice cream couldn’t be simpler – no ice or salt required.
I use the same base in my Peach Ice Cream, and I’m sure it would be fabulous with other berries or fruit as well. The sweetened condensed milk does something magical not just to the flavor of the ice cream, but also to the texture. It is so dang yummy!
I don’t like to have big chunks of strawberry in my ice cream, because I don’t like biting into hard chunks of fruit. But if you prefer a more chunky ice cream, you can chop the strawberries rather than puree them. We can still be friends. 🙂
After sitting in the freezer for a couple hours, it scoops up just perfectly for ice cream cones!
