Homemade Strawberry Ice Cream Recipe

READY IN: 1hr 20mins




  • Combine strawberries, lemon juice, and 1/2 cup of sugar in a bowl and stir. Allow to sit for up to 2 hours.
  • Strain berries and reserve the juices.
  • Puree half the berries.
  • In a medium bowl mix milk and remaining sugar until sugar is dissolved. Stir in heavy cream, leftover juice from the berry mixture, vanilla, and mashed strawberries.
  • Turn on Cuisinart Ice Cream Machine and pour mixture into the frozen freezer bowl for about 20 minutes.
  • Add the rest of the strawberries and mix for another 5 minutes.
  • NOTE:
  • The ice cream will be very soft and creamy. We transferred ours to a container and stuck it in the freezer for about an hour to thicken it up a little the way we like it.
  • I am looking forward to trying out some other new ice cream recipes now that I see just how easy it is to do! In fact, I have a container of blueberries in the kitchen that I think would be great in ice cream too!
