What could be better on a warm summer afternoon than a bowl of homemade ice cream? This recipe is especially easy and delicious!
- 3 cups sliced strawberries, or 3 heaping cups whole berries
- 1 2/3 cups sugar
- 2 1/2 cups whole milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1. Clean and slice strawberries.
2. Blend strawberries, sugar, and milk in blender or food processor using the blade attachment. Process until smooth. Add vanilla and process very briefly to blend. Taste to check for sweetness and add a bit more sugar if needed. Pour strawberry mixture into ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s directions.
I like to mash the strawberries by hand, and use the Kitchen Aid mixer instead of the blender. We also use fresh strawberries and raw milk. I never really enjoyed homemade ice cream until we tried this recipe; now just mention it and I’m all ears!
