Strawberry Ice Cream

I love this time of year when the strawberries are ripe, juicy and on sale at the grocery store! 🙂

This ice cream was a little less creamy than the vanilla ice cream that I made previously, which I attribute to the lack of egg yolks in this recipe.  But, we actually liked this ice cream better.

What you’ll need:

2 cups whole milk

1 cup half and half {I used heavy cream}

one 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

about 10 average size strawberries, pureed and strained if you choose {about one cup of puree}

What you’ll do:

In a large mixing bowl add milk, half and half, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla. Whisk together until well combined.  Add in the strawberries and whisk again.  {I think I’ll chill it in the fridge for a few hours at this point next time.} Pour into ice cream maker and in about 30 minutes you’ll have delicious ice cream!  Place in an airtight container and store in the freezer.
