I love homemade ice cream. Ever since I got an ice cream machine about 8 years ago or so, I have been a convert. There is truly nothing like it. It is so different than anything you can buy in a store, and with an ice cream machine, it’s very easy. A lot of the recipes I make use a custard base which involves heating milk and eggs to a certain temperature and then cooling everything down in an ice bath, followed by refrigerating. And though this isn’t hard, it is time consuming and definitely makes for a bit of a mess to clean up. However, this ice cream recipe has no cooking, no worrying about heating the eggs too much and scrambling them (I’ve definitely done this), no waiting for it to cool down so you can put it in the machine, and way less clean up! It tastes like heaven, if heaven were strawberries and cream. I’m sure you are saying to yourself “Well of course it tastes like strawberries and cream, it’s strawberry ice cream!” But really, when you buy strawberry ice cream, it never tastes anything like a real strawberry. And even worse, it usually has fake flavoring and red dye. So, yes, when I made this for the first time, I was surprised. I kept saying over and over “it really tastes like strawberries and cream”! It is so delicious, I dare you to stop eating it. And with strawberries at the height of their season, there is no excuse not to make it this weekend. Today even! Make it! You will thank me, I promise.
