Hip hip hooray! It’s strawberry season! And there’s nothing better than fresh, sweet, local strawberries.
Our youngest daughter agrees and went strawberry picking a few days ago with some friends and she brought back 3 gallons of fresh strawberries.
After making strawberry preserves, strawberry cake, strawberry shortcake (do I sound a little like Forrest Gump?), and just eating lots of them raw, I still had lots of the sweet berries leftover.
Since everyone in our home loves strawberries and it’s been really hot here recently, I decided to make a batch of strawberry ice cream with some of them and my oh my, am I ever glad I did. It’s heavenly! And I’m sharing the simple recipe with you here today!
It’s an old-fashioned, rich & creamy, delicious version. Perfect for a warm afternoon snack or dessert! And the whole family loves it.

If you love peaches and cream then you’ll definitely want to try it. The batch I made didn’t last through the day!
*For both of these recipes I used our Cuisinart Ice Cream maker.

Q. How long do you churn ice cream with a Cuisinart ice cream maker?
If you’ve chilled the freezer bowl and the ice cream mixture for the recommended amount of time, then you should churn it for about 20 minutes.
Q. How do I know when the ice cream is ready in my Cuisinart ice cream maker?
The ice cream is done when it’s thick and creamy and resembles a firmer version of soft serve ice cream.
- 1 3/4 cups fresh strawberries, hulled (thawed frozen strawberries may be used if necessary)
- 3/4 cup whole milk
- 2/3 cup sugar
- a pinch of salt
- 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
- 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- Put the strawberries in a medium bowl and mash them with a potato masher. You could also use your food processor and pulse until they’re as rough or finely chopped as you wish. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl, use a whisk to combine the milk, sugar, and salt until the sugar is dissolved. You can also use a hand mixer set to low speed.
- Next, stir in the heavy cream and vanilla.
- Stir in the reserved strawberries with all their juices.
- Cover and refrigerate 1 to 2 hours, or overnight.
- Turn on your Cuisinart ice cream maker, pour the mixture into the frozen freezer bowl and let mix until thickened, between 10 and 20 minutes. The ice cream be soft and creamy. If you want a firmer consistency, transfer it to an airtight container and place in the freezer for about 2 hours.
- Remove from freezer 15 minutes before serving.
Be sure to chill the freezer bowl for the ice cream maker overnight.
