How To Make Strawberry-Lemon Ice Cream

Zesty and tart, this strawberry and lemon ice cream makes the best blend of fruit flavors with the combination of strawberries, lemon, and heavy cream.

  1. Combine the strawberries, ⅓ cup of sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest in a bowl, then stir gently.

  2. Cover and store in the refrigerator for about 2 hours.

  3. Meanwhile, mix the milk and remaining sugar in a bowl with an electric mixer at low speed for about 2 minutes until sugar dissolves. Stir in the heavy cream, vanilla extract, and some juice from the strawberries, but not the berries themselves.

  4. Add the mixture to an ice cream maker, then churn according to the manufacturer’s instructions for about 20 minutes.

  5. About 10 minutes before the ice cream is finished, puree most of the strawberries in a food processor or blender. Reserve a few berries to slice for a garnish.

  6. Add the strawberries to the ice cream maker for the last 5 minutes of churning. Transfer to an airtight container and freeze for about 4 hours until firm.

  7. Serve and enjoy.
