Why make my homemade 'instant ice cream' when buying good strawberry ice cream is equally instant? You have to taste this frozen treat to know why. It's half sweetened strawberries and half cream, so the ratio of fruit is extraordinarily high, giving this ice cream an amazingly fresh strawberry flavor. It's not smooth, but what it lacks in creaminess, it more than makes up in fruit-flavor punch.

  • Transfer to shallow pan and freeze to a scoopable texture, about 2 hours. Garnish with fresh strawberries, if you like.

This is absolutely amazing! I had to make it twice in one weekend at the behest of my boyfriend and our friend. This is also very delicious just out of the blender poured over angel or pound cake. Just make it! Read More

Oh My! This is delicious!! Had this blended and in the freezer in under 5 minutes. I only had 12 oz of frozen strawberries so I used frozen mixed berries (blueberries raspberries and strawberries) for the other 12 oz. and it was perfect. Hubby and all the kids said it was "the best ice cream ever." I can't wait to try it with other flavors. Excellent recipe! Read More

I made this last night using fat free half and half and in my food processor. The strawberries I used were not sweetened and it was still plenty sweet. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

This was so good and so easy! My kids helped me make this and were so surprised at how fast I made ice cream! I have made this with various flavors - I made strawberry raspberry and peach. I used 1/2 the amount of sugar in each ice cream flavor and it was sweet enough. It was very good! I will make it again! Read More

I made this exactly as in the recipe. The ice cream was very tasty & very easy to make. The hardest part was waiting for it to harden. I think that I will add a little less sugar the next time I make it. Read More
