Creamy homemade strawberry ice cream with fresh strawberry chunks throughout.
Next to apples, strawberries are my favorite fruit. So sweet and juicy. As a kid, I remember picking strawberries from my backyard and being given baskets of fresh strawberries from neighbors. The best Spring/Summer fruit… depending on your region. In New England, we don’t see really good strawberries until June. It amazes me that strawberry season has apparently already passed for California. It just seems so early.
I am truly jealous of the longer duration fruit and vegetable seasons other areas of the country have, BUT I definitely prefer to enjoy my fresh and local strawberries in the warmer months. They kind of go hand in hand with watermelon season, or at least in my mind. And that probably has a lot to do with the growing seasons I’m familiar with.
Something that definitely isn’t seasonal, ice cream. But, this definitely has a fun seasonal flavor. Ripe, juicy strawberries. It kind of screams Summer to me. And none of that funny artificially flavored strawberry business. I love strawberry ice cream, but it has to be naturally sweetened and with chunks of strawberries. There is nothing more depressing than getting a bowl, scoop or cone of strawberry ice cream only to find out there isn’t a single piece of actual fruit in it. It should be packed full of fruit.
This one is! It had to be.
Easy, homemade creamy strawberry ice cream loaded with chunks of fresh juicy strawberries. And because strawberries freeze so well, you can make this year round! Just remember to thaw them first to pull out all of that amazing strawberry juice! This is an absolute must make for strawberry fans!
