Strawberry Ice Cream

If you haven’t ever had homemade strawberry ice cream you should probably go hide in a corner for a few hours…just kidding. But you need to find some or make some ASAP, because no matter what kind of day you’re having, strawberry ice cream will always make you feel better.

I went to a strawberry farm this afternoon and decided to make the first churn of ice cream for the spring/summer. And it is MARVELOUS.

My family’s super easy homemade strawberry ice cream recipe:

1 can of evaporated milk
1 1/2 cups of sugar
2 cups of strawberries (shouldn’t be optional, but it is if you want something other than strawberry ice cream)
1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla
Almost 1/2 gallon of milk (until you reach the “full” line in the churn)

1. Put 2 cups of strawberries (with the caps cut off) into a blender. Add evaporated milk, sugar, and vanilla. Blend the mixture on the lowest setting enough to blend them into a pulp.

2. Pour the mixture into the churn. Add 1/2 gallon of milk or until it reaches the full line.

3. Put churn into ice cream maker. Keep in ice cream maker until it stops churning. It should take about 20 minutes unless it’s hot outside, then it might take longer.

4. Enjoy!
