I couldn’t post this on a Thursday, because this isn’t something I like, it is something I love!
It is so delicious, easy, creamy and amazing. I was suspicious of the sour cream, but the ice cream is fabulous, and not tangy. It is also not light. But I say bust out that dusty ice cream maker (or, in my case, KitchenAid attachment) and get cranking because this stuff is gooooooooooood. And it tastes like SUMMER.
Strawberry Ice Cream
1 lb. fresh sliced strawberries
¾ cup sugar
1 cup sour cream
1 cup heavy cream
½ tsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice (believe it or not, I used lime and it tasted just lovely)
Combine the strawberries and sugar is a bowl, stir and let it become amazing juicy goodness for about an hour.
Put the strawberry/sugar mixture in your blender or Cuisinart with the remaining three ingredients. Blend, but not too much! Make sure this mixture is cold – it doesn’t hurt to stick it in the fridge for a while. In fact, if you’re entertaining, you can make this in advance, and then start the ice cream maker when you sit down for dinner, and 30 minutes later – fresh strawberry ice cream deliciousness! Once the mixture is cold, just follow your ice cream maker instructions.
