It’s summertime and that means I’ve had my ice cream maker out so many times already. I love making homemade ice cream, and of course, my kids love it too. We’ve been experimenting with some different flavors. My kids love adding Oreos and making cookies and cream ice cream. My favorite so far is making fresh strawberry ice cream. Fresh strawberries give this ice cream an amazing flavor.

Ice cream often goes on sale in the summer, and I’ve seen my local grocery store sell their store brand for as low as $.99 cents a carton. That is a pretty screaming deal since it’s hard to make ice cream homemade for that price. However, checking out the impressively long ingredients list leaves me wondering what some of those ingredients are and how to pronounce them. This homemade version uses only 6 ingredients which can easily be found in your local grocery store.

I am currently obsessed with strawberries because it’s the time of year where they are fresh and inexpensive. You can definitely change up the fruit in this recipe though if you want to. There are so many wonderful seasonal fruits. I like eating this ice cream as a little after dinner treat at the end of the day. My kids love eating ice cream in ice cream cones.
