Strawberry Ice Cream

strawberry ice cream recipeDoes anything say summer more than strawberry ice cream? Here in California, the strawberry season is in full swing and these little red gems were screaming to be made into an ice cream. I love my ice cream maker so much that I will not buy ice cream in the grocery store anymore. It is just so easy to make at home and tastes so amazing. Plus my children think that it is pure magic that you pour some liquid into a little machine and ice cream comes out. Who am I to disappoint them?

This ice cream takes a bit longer to make than most of the other flavors that I have made. It is completely worth the wait.

  • I just purchased an ice cream maker so this recipe comes at a perfect time! I have a question though…..when you say to chill the ice cream for 2 hours or overnight, you mean, put the mixture in the fridge for 2 hours or overnight before you’ve put it in the ice cream maker?

    • that is exactly what I mean. The ice cream will freeze better if the mixture is really cold when it goes into the machine. Have fun with your new ice cream maker. I love mine!

  • Thanks for the info about chilling the mixture first. I made my first batch of plain old vanilla last night and it turned out really good!

    My next question……….what size is your ice cream machine? Just trying to get an idea if I need to half your recipe for my machine. Mine is only 1 1/2 quarts.

  • Your recipe sounds like a perfect addition to my no-store-bought-ice-cream summer. I am definitely including this one in my Monday menu plan for the week!

  • This is fabulous ice cream!! It tastes exactly like the ice cream you get at stands in Germany, something I’ve never been able to find in the States. I’m going to make it with all kinds of fruit. Thank you for sharing this!

    • I bet that raspberry and peach would be delicious. I am glad that you found something similar to what you were looking for.

  • We went strawberry picking this past weekend just outside Boston, MA, and I wanted an easy ice cream recipe that didn’t involve raw eggs or cooking since our toddler daughter will likely be the main consumer and we don’t have an air conditioned kitchen! Well, this recipe is fantastic!! I adapted it slightly as I have a Krups 1.5 quart ice cream maker (1 1/3 cups heavy cream and 2/3 cup whole milk, although I may need to scale the quantities back a tad further next time) and the results were terrific 🙂

    • I need to go berry picking soon. This would be really good with raspberries too I bet.

  • Thanks for the great strawberry recipe! I need some way to use up these costco strawberries.. 🙂

    Just one question – what brand glass containers are you using to store your ice cream in the freezer? I was going to use a pyrex but there’s a ton of search results about exploding pyrex containers..

    Reply
    • I think that they are Pyrex, but I have never had a problem freezing them.

  • This tastes wonderful! I don’t like store bought strawberry ice cream because I think it has a cooked flavor, but this tastes so fresh and bright!! I can’t decide whether I like this or your amazing fresh mint ice cream recipe better.

  • Hi, Just curious what kind of Ice Cream maker you use? I have been researching them as I have a very old fashioned one and not sure which is the easiest and best type to get. Would love to here what you have.

  • Hi Bree
    A friend pointed me in a the direction of your blog and vanilla ice cream recipe when I said I wanted to make peach ice cream this weekend.
    I found a million different recipes on pinterest and I am wondering if I could do the peaches similar to the strawberries? Will they get juicy with sugar if I let them sit a couple hours? Then maybe do a chunky blend? I really want a true peach ice cream and not just a vanilla with chunks of peach. Any suggestions?

    Thanks for any help!

    Reply
    • I don’t see why not? I have never made peach ice cream, so I am not sure exactly.

  • I am looking at buying an ice cream maker. Which is the one you use?
