Strawberries have just come into season and it was a real treat to make and then devour this ice cream. Since I'm Somersizing I altered the ingredients just a bit, but I believe the recipe is intrinsicly a good base and can take almost any variation. I used real strawberries, full heavy cream, Splenda and 1 real egg. I actually whipped everything but the strawberries in my stand mixer, then added the sliced strawberries, which then got "bruised" perfectly into the ice cream mix. I poured this mixture into a Tupperware and tucked it away in the back of the freezer. We had this for dessert on Friday night and all my berry loving daughters gave it 5 stars each.
