Strawberry Ice Cream Ingredients

Strawberries – make sure you use the freshest, fully ripened strawberries you can find. These will be sweeter and will make for a more flavorful ice cream. So, make sure the ones you buy are pink-red and have no white or green bits.

Whipping cream – for the creamiest ice cream, look for full-fat cream.

Condensed milk – the sugar in condensed milk helps that the ice cream stays creamy during the freezing process without becoming too icy. Sugar influences ice crystal formation in ice cream.


How To Make Strawberry Ice Cream

First, whip the cream until stiff peaks form. Add the condensed milk, and whisk again. Stir in the strawberries, pour into a container, and freeze. Serve and enjoy!
