I love ice cream! Just about every evening I get to craving the milky sweet goodness of a bowl of ice cream. And, with strawberries, ice cream all the better. Ice cream is the perfect ending to a summer dinner. But, I don’t always have ice cream on-hand in the freezer. That’s why this Strawberry No-churn Ice Cream recipe is the perfect option for a summer dessert idea. Oh, who am I kidding, it’s a great idea any time of the year!
Maybe I enjoy ice cream so much because it reminds me of my childhood. My dad was always doing little acts of love for his four children. One of those was ice cream treats. Sometimes, it was stopping at the ice cream shop when we were out and about. And, other times it was keeping a quart or two in the freezer for an anytime treat.
I think it’s a good idea to include desserts in meal planning a couple of times a week. It makes the kids happy, and we all need a little something sweet from time to time, don’t we?
And, ice cream is an uncomplicated dessert that doesn’t need a lot of prep work. Your kids will love it any day of the week.

- 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
- 2 cups cold heavy cream
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ quart strawberries, pureed
- extra strawberries, sliced
- Remove stems and puree strawberries in a food processor for 15-20 seconds.
- With a mixer, beat heavy whipping cream until thick.
- Pour in sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, and strawberries and fold with a rubber spatula until smooth. Don't over mix. You want it to remain light and fluffy.
- Next, spoon ice cream into a freezer safe container. And, add in extra strawberry slices.
- Freeze for 5-6 hours or overnight.
- When it is time to serve, remove the container from the freezer and let sit on the counter for 5-10 minutes before serving to soften.
