  • 1 lb strawberries (sliced or quartered (3-4 cups / 450g))
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar (divided (250g))
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice (30mL)
  • 1 cup whole milk (8 fl oz / 240mL)
  • 2 cups heavy cream (16 fl oz / 480mL)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • Add the strawberries, 1/2 cup of the granulated sugar, and lemon juice to a large bowl. Stir together. Let sit at room temperature for an hour to let the juices release from the strawberries.
  • Add the strawberries and their juices to a food processor. Process until smooth.
  • Pour the strawberry mixture back into the large mixing bowl. Add remaining sugar, whole milk, heavy cream, vanilla, and salt. Stir until the sugar has dissolved.
  • Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  • Churn ice cream according to your ice cream machine's directions (mine took about 30 minutes), until it is a soft serve consistency.
  • Scoop the ice cream into a shallow container or loaf pan and freeze for 3 hours, or until firm.
  • Let the ice cream sit out at room temperature for a few minutes to soften before you scoop and serve.
