Strawberry Ice Cream Recipe

Strawberries and Cream Ice Cream RecipeMaking strawberry ice cream is easy

Here in Melbourne, summer is well and truly over – it’s wet and cold. Luckily it’s still warm in other parts of Australia and so the strawberries never seem to go out of season. I took advantage of this by making a big batch of strawberry ice cream. The base is really creamy which is the perfect combination for strawberries.

If strawberries aren’t in season in your part of the world, you can use frozen berries. It’s not quite as good, but you can still make some great ice cream – better than the store bought products anyway.

If you’re more of a blueberry fan, then try this blueberry ice cream recipe. It is a bit quicker to make and is really yummy.
