Easy Strawberry Ice Cream recipe

Disclosure: I received a free 2 oz. bottle of Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Vanilla to make an ice cream recipe and share about it on my blog. I am a long time fan of their high quality, premium products and jumped at the chance to feature them on my blog. They are also providing a second bottle as a giveaway for one of you :)

July is National Ice Cream month! A fun way to celebrate is by making your own delicious homemade ice cream. Here is an easy to make, no cook recipe for Strawberry Ice cream that the kids can help with too.

Easy strawberry ice cream recipe

Adding the sugar is a fun job for little helpers


Measuring the Vanilla


Mashing the ingredients together


All ingredients stirred and ready to go into the ice cream maker


The mixer takes over the hard work of churning


This is what it looks like right after it’s finished in the ice cream maker. It’s delicious like this or frozen overnight like in the finished picture in the recipe below.

  1. 1 pound fresh strawberries, washed, hulled and quartered
  2. ¾ cup sugar
  3. 2 teaspoons Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Pure Vanilla Extract
  4. ¼ teaspoon salt
  5. 1½ cups Half and Half
  6. 1 cup 2% milk
  1. In a 4 quart glass measuring cup, add berries, sugar, vanilla extract, and salt. Smash with a potato masher; stir in Half and Half and milk; set aside.
  2. Assemble ice cream maker. Turn ice cream maker on and pour ice cream mixture into frozen container. Let mix until ice cream thickens, about 20-30 minutes.
  3. You can eat it right away if you like a softer texture. For a firmer texture you can freeze it for a few hours or overnight in an airtight container. Yields 1.5 Quarts.
  1. I used the KitchenAid ice cream bowl stand mixer attachment with my KitchenAid stand mixer.

    OH MY GOSH I NEED THAT MIXER IN MY LIFE NOW, or maybe you can mail me some icecream :) This looks DEVINE and DELICIOUS, I wonder if I could recreate it with lactose free ingredients….and no mixer…until then I’ll just eat frozen strawberries looking at your photo pretending :)

      You can! I made lactose free ice cream last summer by using coconut milk instead of cream, turned out wonderfully!

      And my favorite ice cream is… Vanilla Coffee Bean. Just love that stuff.

    LOL! I just checked out your page, Amber. Love how you have your recipes organized! I’m also a fan of the overnight oats. Now I want to try adding greek yogurt like you do for that extra protein boost :)

    That strawberry ice cream looks delish! My favorite is a toss up between butter pecan, chocolate or coffee!

    Every year we attend the pecan festival in Brunswick MO. One of their churches makes homemade ice cream and they always have pecan pie ice cream that is filled with pieces of pecan pie. It is amazing.
