Strawberry Ice Cream

strawberry ice cream recipe

Strawberry Ice Cream – Eggless strawberry ice cream made with the best strawberries of the summer. Served in a cone or bowl, this is perfect summer treat.

Does 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.

    Oh those berries! And those happy little ice-cream eating faces! It all just screams summer…and looks completely delicious…!

    1. bakedbree

      thank you.. my little ice cream eaters loved the strawberry.

  2. Beverly

    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?

    1. bakedbree

      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!

  3. Hannah

    Hey Bree! I’ve been following Your blog for a rather long time now, I love it!

    Could I request You makin’ some mac and cheese? Thanks! ♥

    1. bakedbree

      I’ll see what I can do… 🙂

  4. Memoria

    Your kids’ eyes just slay me!!! What a lovely ice cream! I just got a hand blender, so I would love to use it with this recipe. Thanks for sharing these great photos and recipe.

    1. bakedbree

      their eyes get them out of a lot of trouble!

  5. southern hostess

  6. Marta Costa

    I’m going to experiment with this recipe very soon because me an d my boyfriend are crazy for ice creams! But I couldn’t resist on putting it on my blog by the moment I found it.
    Please take a look and let me know if everything is ok. Love you blog! Great job!
    Thank you!

    1. bakedbree

      thank you… we are crazy for ice cream around here too!

  7. Beverly

    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.

    1. bakedbree

      Mine is 2 quarts. I would cut this recipe back to fit.

  8. Nicole @ cookingafterfive

    Summer perfection! Strawberry ice cream is one of my favorites. Yours looks delicious!

    1. bakedbree

      thank you!

  9. Tifani

    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!

    1. bakedbree

      It is so fresh and delicious. You will love it.

  10. Surcie

    I’m not someone who cooks well, but I can do this, I just know it! Thanks for posting.

    1. bakedbree

      you absolutely can do this! Let me know how it goes.

  11. Megan (a dash of megnut)

    im about to start making this! i’m LOVING strawberry season right now

    1. bakedbree

      Me too!

  12. Rose

    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!

    1. bakedbree

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

  13. Miranda

    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 🙂

    1. bakedbree

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

  14. Yoko

    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..

    1. bakedbree

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

  15. Elizabeth

    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.

    1. bakedbree

      Thank you Elizabeth! I am so glad that you like both recipes.

  16. Kim Drake

    This recipe looks divine! How much does it yield?

    1. bakedbree

      1 quart I believe.

  17. Meg @ Peaches and Cake

    I’ve never seen an ice cream recipe with no eggs or cornstarch before! How interesting! And it looks so creamy!!

    1. bakedbree

      It is my favorite way to make it. It is so much easier too than making a real custard. The result is so creamy.

      1. Meg @ Peaches and Cake

        Thanks so much! I will definitely try this!

  18. Pam

    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.

  19. Heather L

    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!

    1. bakedbree

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

  20. sealinks.org

    I only gently mashed the strawberries. Then added some more just before freezing. Yummy yummy. Best strawberry recipe so far.

    1. bakedbree

      Great!

  21. Barbara B

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

  22. James

    This recipe says the total yield is 1 quart. It yields 2 quarts. I doubled the recipe and would up wasting half.
