Summer, Summer, Summer time! It's been about 100 degrees every day recently at our house. I love it! Bring on the warm sun. Try this luscious strawberry ice cream on a summer day. It would be a great refreshing dessert for July 4th. Garnish it with fresh blueberries and some whipped cream for a red, white, and blue treat.
Fresh Strawberry Ice Cream
1 pound fresh strawberries, sliced
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup sour cream
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
Place sliced strawberries and sugar in the pitcher of a blender. Do not blend right away. Allow the strawberries and sugar to sit at room temperature for about an hour, stirring occasionally. Add the sour cream, heavy cream, and lemon juice. Puree in the blender until smooth.
Chill mixture for an hour. Transfer to an ice cream maker to freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions. Transfer to a storage container and freeze completely in the freezer. Enjoy!
