Strawberry Ice Cream. The wonderful tastes of summer! And what could be better on a hot summer day than strawberry ice cream? This yummy treat is simple to make! The good news is, you can make it with or without an ice cream maker!
How do you like your strawberry ice cream? Smooth? Just puree the fresh strawberries. Do you want a little "strawberry chunk" in your ice cream? Just slice the strawberries!
