Strawberry season will soon be upon us and what better way to celebrate this most delicious fruit than with this no-churn homemade strawberry ice cream. It’s rich and creamy with a burst of fresh strawberry in every bite. And, you don’t need an ice cream maker for this recipe either!
How to Make No-Churn Homemade Strawberry Ice Cream
Recently, I had a craving for something with strawberries. Not wanting to make the same-old, same-old recipe, I had a brilliant idea: How about making a version of my no-churn ice cream but this time with strawberries! Yes, it was a brilliant idea as you will see below.
The fact is, I love the idea of using fresh fruit whenever I can. And, besides, strawberries work nicely in this recipe because they don’t turn mushy but hold both their form and taste–even when frozen.
Just give me the real deal and I’ll be happy. That’s why this recipe is my favorite for showcasing the delightfully refreshing taste of the season’s best fruit.
And, speaking of recipes, this is a purist’s recipe for sure. Nothing fancy is added but straight whipping cream, sugar, vanilla extract, and whole milk–and, of course, fresh strawberries. But hey, who needs the extra “stuff” anyway? Not me.
And, you’ll find that there’s no need to add additional sugar or artificial flavors here. You’ll only taste the goodness that nature has to offer.
Now isn’t that what you’d expect homemade strawberry ice cream should be?
