Strawberry Ice Cream Recipe

Today I felt like making something a little extra sweet. Strawberry ice cream is one of my favorite flavors, and making your own at home is relatively easy, so I’ve found out.

A friend told me how to make this ice cream, and I’m going to share it with you. Let’s see how this recipe works out, shall we!? Oh, and best of all? You don’t need an ice cream maker!

How To Make Strawberry Ice Cream

We’re going to start with a can of sweetened condensed milk, heavy cream and of course strawberries. To top our ice cream we’re going to toss on a bunch of M&M’s® Strawberry, which I also used in these strawberry cupcakes.

It’s not strawberry season here by any stretch of the imagination, so I’m going to make do with frozen strawberries. I’ll just thaw them out before chopping them up! PS: I looked at the “fresh” strawberries at the grocery store, they looked disgusting, so that’s ultimately why I decided on frozen. These will work just fine. After all, we are making a frozen dessert!

Three Ingredient Strawberry Ice Cream

Since I did decide on frozen strawberries, I’ll first thaw them and then chop them finely.

Homemade Strawberry Ice Cream

With a hand mixer, mix heavy whipping cream until you get soft peaks. Soft peaks are peaks that form when you lift the beater from the bowl. Soft peaks will flop over almost immediately and not hold their shape well.

Add the sweetened condensed milk to the mixture and continue mixing for 60 seconds.

With a spatula or spoon, fold in the finely chopped strawberries.

Folding Strawberries into Strawberry Ice Cream
