Strawberry Ice Cream

I love making ice cream; I think it’s one of my favorite things to make in the kitchen. I absolutely love my ice-cream maker, too. It’s just the attachment bowl to my Kitchen-Aid mixer but it’s so easy to use and makes delicious frozen concoctions! I had a bunch of strawberries and was armed with my trusty Ben and Jerry’s Cookbook so decided to start summer a little early and make a yummy sweet treat.

This turned out SO well! I followed the instructions below but used a potato masher on the strawberries and didn’t puree them in a blender. I like to have some fruit chunks in my ice cream, but that’s just my preference. It came out great! Definitely will be making this again.

I told my husband I wanted to make it every week but he said then we’d each weigh 400 pounds and have to be air-lifted out of our beds someday. Is that really so bad???
