Saying all that can only mean one thing, time for the ice cream machine  to make an appearance.

  1. Wow, this sound so good, the presentation is beautiful. I wonder if I could make ice cream using the same ingredients but instead of an ice cream maker to use my Vitamix and the freeze the mix. Any suggestions?

  2. I’m definitely coming to visit and you can make me all your recipes so I can review them. Starting with this.

  3. This looks sooooo good! When I have tried to make strawberry ice cream, the berries freeze so hard that it’s like chewing on little rocks when we try to eat it. Does mashing the berries prevent this? I hope so because I really want to try your recipe!

    • The strawberries do freeze more if you put the left over ice cream in the freezer. But right out of the machine they’re not rock solid, if left larger. Anything that goes in to a 0° freezer will freeze 😉 Happy Ice Cream eating!

  4. Yum, looks great Debbie! 🙂 Reminds me of being a kid! xo
