Fresh Strawberry Ice Cream

This recipe was included with my new Cuisinart Ice Cream maker and it's out of this world AMAZING!! The best part is you don't need an ice cream maker to make it! It's the perfect summer sweet treat! 

It makes five 1/2 cup servings 

1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries
3/4 cup whole milk
2/3 cup sugar 
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1) Put the strawberries into the bowl of a food processor fitted with the chopping blade. Pulse strawberries until rough/finely chopped (depending on preference). Reserve in bowl. 

2)In a medium bowl, use a hand mixer on low speed or whisk to combine the milk, sugar and salt until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla. Stir in reserved strawberries with all juices. 

3)Transfer the ice cream to an airtight container and place in freezer overnight. Remove from freezer about 15 minutes before serving. Then enjoy!!!
