Homegrown strawberries in the Midwest states are like peonies…they come and go so quickly that if you blink you might miss them. Some years I have missed the strawberries all together. Luckily, last week I happened upon a road side fruit stand and they had an amazing supply of fresh, homegrown strawberries. I got 2 quarts without knowing exactly what I was going to do with them. I decided to try my hand at a batch of no churn strawberry ice cream. You all know that my mantra is “easy and quick.” With just four ingredients, this recipe is both and a definite winner.

No Churn Strawberry Ice Cream Tips

  • Ice cream will be very hard. Let it sit out about 15 min. before serving. When softened just a little it serves beautifully.
  • Strawberries should be ripe in order for them to break up when whipping.

My daughter came home for Father’s Day, so I served this for dessert. She really wanted a Lemonade Icebox Cake, but I had to use up the strawberries, so she was over-ruled. My husband, who rarely comments on anything I make, said it was the best ice cream he had ever had. Coming from him, that’s high praise. So don’t be the least bit nervous to serve this to family or friends. Last year, when I made a plain version of Homemade No Churn Ice Cream, I divided it into individual ramekins before freezing. If you are entertaining, it’s the perfect dessert because it’s done ahead and ready to serve. Of course you could totally make it for yourself as a special treat…you definitely deserve it!
