Enjoy the fruits of the season with this easy and delicious strawberry ice cream made with only five ingredients.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound of fresh strawberries, quartered and leaves removed
  • 1/3 cup sugar, more if desired (taste your strawberries for sweetness)
  • 3/4 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 cups 35% cream
  • 1 tsp vodka, optional

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, mash strawberries, sugar, lemon juice and salt together. I find the best way to do this is with a pastry cutter. Mash until mixture is liquidy and strawberries are in tiny pieces.
  • Next, whisk in the cream and vodka, if using.
  • Freeze in your ice cream maker according to manufacturer directions. Mine takes about 15-20 minutes. You can eat the ice cream right away (it will have the consistency of soft serve), or freeze for 2-3 hours and enjoy.
  • When serving, allow to thaw on the counter for 5-10 minutes to allow ice cream to soften.
