Strawberry Ice Cream

I could not let national ice cream month pass without sharing at least one more ice cream recipe.  This is so, so simple.  I know I just posted a recipe for a strawberry cheesecake ice cream, but believe me, this is different.  First, it doesn't have cream cheese in it :)  Second, it actually only uses 4 ingredients...yep..that's right... FOUR.  And third, there is no cooking involved!!! YAY!!!!  Ok, well that's actually the same as the other recipe, but I think you see where I'm going here.  This ice cream has got the perfect strawberry flavor with the perfect creaminess....it's airy, it's ... well....it's outstanding!  This was actually going to be a raspberry ice cream, but when I got to the store I saw they had strawberries on sale for $1.90 and I just couldn't pass that up.   So I grabbed a container of them and walked away happy.  Strawberries are just one of those fruits that will forever remind me of summer, as does ice cream...so it seemed only fitting to create this recipe.  Now I have not tried other fruits in this ice cream, but I feel very confident that it would work with raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, and even peaches.  You can use fresh or frozen, though I would suggest that if you have access to fresh fruit, use it!


Strawberry Ice Cream
Printable Recipe 
Ingredients:
1 16oz container of strawberries, hulled and quartered
1 cup sugar
pinch of salt
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:
In a blender or large food processor, add the strawberries, sugar, and salt.  Pulse for 30 seconds.  Add the cream and mix until well blended.  Add the vanilla and pulse until just blended.  Taste it at this point, make sure it doesn't need a tad bit more vanilla to even out the taste.  Let chill in refrigerator for at least 4 hours.

Pour chilled cream mixture into a bowl of an ice cream mixer and process according to manufacturers instructions.  Scoop into plastic containers with air tight lids and let harder for a bit before serving.  Enjoy!!

Just out of the ice cream maker, it's always so soft serve-like, I love it!!

I love it when it's just been made too...It's so much better before it gets hard in the freezer.
