Strawberry Ice Cream


Hey again, guys! It’s Jessica from Sprinkle Some Sugar back to share a super delicious recipe with you. I’m pretty excited about it because it’s ICE CREAM! Basically my favorite thing in the world. When it gets warm out (or basically all year round..), my ice cream maker is always running. I can’t get enough of homemade ice cream!

Strawberry Ice Cream

In New Jersey, the weather is all over the place. Some days it’s ice cream weather and some days it’s winter coat weather. It’s crazy. I made this ice cream on one of the warmer days and I could NOT stop eating it! Fresh strawberries are used in the ice cream so the strawberry flavor is so creamy, fresh and chock full of so much strawberry flavor.

Strawberry Ice Cream


You do need an ice cream maker to prepare this ice cream. It’s really pretty simple if you follow the directions carefully. Real strawberries are pureed and strained (or not, personal preference – I don’t like the seeds in my ice cream!) for the freshest flavor. The more ripe they are, the better your ice cream will taste!

Fresh Strawberry Ice Cream

Prep Time 40 minutes Cook Time 5 minutes


  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup agave nectar (or honey)
  • 2 1/2 cups strawberries, sliced


  1. In a small saucepan, heat cream, milk, cornstarch and agave on medium-low heat until bubbly and thickened slightly, whisking constantly, about 5 minutes. Once the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon, place the pot with hot mixture into a large bowl filled with ice water and whisk it constantly until cool to the touch.
  2. Place strawberries in a blender and puree for about two minutes until completely smooth. Push mixture through a fine mesh strainer over a bowl to remove seeds and discard them. If you don't mind the seeds, you can omit this step.
  3. Once the cream mixture is cooled down, whisk in strawberry puree until fully incorporated. Cover mixture with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator to chill for two hours. Pour mixture into ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions, about 20-30 minutes or so. Pour into an airtight container and freeze 4-6 hours or overnight. Allow ice cream to set out for a few minutes before scooping.
