Strawberry Ice Cream

This strawberry ice cream is simple, easy, and refreshingly delicious!

Yield: 10-12 1x


Units Scale
  • 2 cups fresh (or frozen) strawberries or mixture of berries, stemmed (sliced, if needed)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract


  1. If you’re only using fresh strawberries, slice them and stir with 1/4 cup of the given sugar, allowing to sit and macerate for 2 hours. Other berries do not need macerating. If your mixed berries are frozen, it’s best to leave them frozen.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the milk and sugar until sugar is dissolved.
  3. Stir in heavy cream and vanilla, and whisk to combine well.
  4. Turn ice cream make on and pour milk/cream mixture in. Follow directions on your ice cream maker for churning; generally about 25-30 minutes.
  5. During last 5-10 minutes of churning, add the strawberries (including juices from macerating, if any.)
  6. Ice cream may be soft and need to firm up in freezer for 2-3 hours before serving.
