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.
Add 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips.
Add 1/2 cup chopped pecans.
Store any leftover in the freezer.
