strawberry ice cream recipe

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.

Helpful Hint: If you'd like a more "intense" strawberry color, simply add a few drops of red food coloring until you achieve the color you desire.

Serving Tip: Just like a cherry on top completes an ice cream sundae, strawberry ice cream looks great when served with a plump, ripe strawberry on top!
