Strawberry Ice Cream!

All the talk about strawberries on Tuesday made us buy more strawberries!!! And all that talk about putting strawberries on ice cream made us want to get more ice cream.

But then we had a brilliant idea.

Why not make strawberry ice cream?!!

So we did.

 

Here’s what you need:

3 cups macerated strawberries (click here to see how to macerate, we used vanilla bean sugar this time instead of lavender!)

1 1/4 cups vanilla bean sugar

1 1/2 cups milk

2 3/4 cups heavy cream

 

Start by separating the strawberries from the juice they produced. Set the juice aside and puree the strawberries in a blender.

Combine the milk and vanilla bean sugar in a mixer and mix on low until sugar is dissolved. (If you don’t have a mixer (or just don’t feel like getting it out) you can use your blender to do this too!Β Just pulse it for about a minute)

In a big bowl combine the pureed strawberries, the juices, the milk mix, and the heavy cream.

Stir it all together and pour it into your ice cream maker! Follow the directions for your machine from there.

This isΒ what you have to look forward to:
