Fresh Strawberry Ice Cream

Fresh Strawberry Ice Cream

Some of the wonderful strawberries we picked last weekend wound up in my strawberry ice cream. This is creamy richness bursting with intense strawberry flavor. This is a non-custard ice cream and does not require eggs. I have a Cuisinart ice cream maker that simplifies the job. I keep the freezer bowl in my freezer so I can make ice cream any time. This would also be a great base for a milk shake!

Strawberry Ice Cream

4 cups strawberries, hulled

Juice of half a lemon, or to taste

1 to 1 1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar, to taste

1 1/4 cups heavy cream

Puree strawberries in a blender or food processor, then turn them into a bowl and season with the lemon juice and sugar to taste. Stir in the cream. Freeze churn until the ice cream is ready to serve.

Variations:

Add 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips.

Add 1/2 cup chopped pecans.

Store any leftover in the freezer.
