‘Tis the season and you know I’m a LOVER of all things seasonal!
At our house, we love homemade ice cream. We have an electric ice cream maker, where you use ice and salt and it makes a huge batch. It’s great for a gathering or birthday party. Store bought ice cream doesn’t hold a candle to homemade.
So imagine my excitement last year when I found the ice cream maker attachment for my KitchenAid Mixer at a yard sale. I was thrilled, but never took the time to use it…until now. My new summer goal…to see how many different kinds of ice cream I can make (to share with other people, of course!).
Fresh picked strawberries from a road side stand were begging to be made into this cool treat and it came together quickly. Grab a few basic ingredients and you’ll be enjoying creamy goodness in no time!

FRESH STRAWBERRY ICE CREAM
1 pint (about 1 1/2 cups) FRESH STRAWBERRIES, diced
3 Tablespoons LEMON JUICE
1 cup SUGAR, divided
1 cup WHOLE MILK
2 cups HEAVY CREAM
1 teaspoon VANILLA
In a small bowl, combine strawberries, lemon juice and 1/3 cup sugar. Let sit for 1 to 2 hours. *
In a medium bowl, mix together milk and remaining 2/3 cup of sugar. Beat with a hand mixer for 1 to 2 minutes, or until sugar is dissolved. Stir in heavy cream, vanilla and juice from strawberries.
Pour mixture in the bowl of your ice cream maker and process according to your ice cream maker’s instructions. Add the strawberries during the last 5 minutes of churning.
If desired, place in freezer to harden about 1 to 2 hours before serving.
*I didn’t take the time to let it set for 1 to 2 hours and it still turned out fabulous.
