As far as ice cream goes, very rarely will you find me straying from chocolate . . .

But this strawberry ice cream was just the flavor I was looking for to go with some fresh lemon-basil cookies I made earlier.

I started with a recipe I found on Julie’s Eats and Treats.

My version uses frozen strawberries – the no added sugar variety.

I had a reason for choosing frozen —

Since we were at the very start of strawberry season when I was testing this recipe, I wanted to make sure the strawberries were super sweet.

Frozen strawberries are always nice and sweet.

I used the ice cream attachment on my  Kitchen Aid mixer . {affiliate link}

For those of you who don’t own an ice cream maker or attachment, all’s not lost . . .

I tried a separate batch of this recipe without an ice cream mixture.

After cooling slightly I added the cream mixture and strawberries into my blender.  I blended on high for 2 minutes. Then I placed a sheet of plastic wrap directly on the mixture (to prevent a “skin” from forming) and put the blender pitcher in the fridge to thoroughly chill for a couple hours.

Once the cream/strawberry mixture was well-chilled, I blended again on high for another couple minutes before pouring it all into a bowl and placing in the freezer until frozen (again, with plastic wrap directly on top).

Both versions had great flavor.

As far as texture goes, I personally preferred the version prepared with the ice cream attachment.

It was creamier and smoother.

Still — the blender version was good.

After all, it’s ICE CREAM that you make AT HOME!

Either way — ice cream maker or blender — you wind up with a delicious dessert.

Jeff and I enjoyed a little scoop of ice cream after dinner for the next few days.

Strawberry ice cream has such a light and fresh flavor.  It’s a perfect way to conclude a delicious meal.  (Unless there’s chocolate, of course!)
