Fresh & Sweet Strawberry Ice Cream

From Cortney and Co

Well it only took me two years, but I finally used my KitchenAide Ice Cream Maker. I don't know why I was so intimated by it, but if I would have known how easy it was, I would have used it a long time ago. Speaking of easy, this recipe couldn't be more simple and I promise you will be shocked by the quality of the ice cream. Everyone in my house agreed it was way better than anything you can buy at the store. 

What You Need:

For the strawberry puree 
-1 pint of strawberries 
-2 tbsps honey 
-1/2 cup sugar
-1 tsp fresh lemon juice 

For the ice cream base 
-1/2 cup half & half
-1 cup heavy whipping cream
-1 tsp vanilla 

What To Do:

1. Wash the strawberries, remove the stems, and hull the inside. I find the easiest way to do this is to poke a straw directly through the middle of the strawberry and pull out the hull.
2. Chop the strawberries into very fine pieces and place them in a large bowl. 
3. Add the honey, sugar, and lemon juice to the berries then give it a good stir. Place the bowl in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. This gives the strawberries a chance to get all juicy. 
4. Remove the bowl from the refrigerator and smash any larger pieces with a fork. I don't like mine too mashed as I like the taste of strawberry chunks in the ice cream.
5. Add the half & half, cream, and vanilla to the strawberry puree and mix well.
5. Follow the directions on the ice cream maker and mix for 10-20 minutes (this will depend on your model).
6. Once the ice cream is fully churned, remove from the bowl and serve immediately.
