The idea of making ice cream at home sounded like a daunting task, but that couldn’t be further from the truth!

You don’t realize how much better homemade tastes until you have tried it yourself. Plus there is the added benefit of knowing exactly what ingredients you are giving your family.


– Ripe strawberries – Lemon juice – Sugar – Whole milk – Heavy cream – Vanilla extract

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.
