Strawberry Ice Cream

Do you love homemade ice cream as much as I do?  Can you just not wait till summer to make lots of it?  That's how I for the last week or two I have been making some ice cream every few nights.  I can't really share the whole recipe because it's a family secret.  But, I can tell you that I use skim milk in it, and it still comes out super creamy and delicious!

So yesterday, I was at Sprouts and they had some fabulous sales on produce.  I got 5 lbs. of potatoes for $.99,  1lb. of organic strawberries for $1 and the deals went on!  I actually got a couple of lbs. of strawberries since it was such a great deal...and I may have to go back for more too.  :)

Anyway, I usually am a purest with most things I like.  As in, I like the original form and usually don't deviate.  For instance I never eat fruity ice cream, or really much more than just chocolate or vanilla.  Sounds boring right?  But that's just the way I am.  Not boring...just stuck in my ways.  If I like something, why mess with perfection?

Last night I did though.  I made homemade strawberry ice cream.  And wow!  I will be making that again soon.  It was great!  :)  I just did my vanilla ice cream recipe as usual and put it in my ice cream maker.  Then I rinsed off the strawberries and cut them up into little pieces.  Then I added them and kind of helped stir them in.  Wow!  Delicious is the only word I have for it!  My hubs and I could hardly get enough!  :)  A nice fresh spring treat!  Try it yourself!  I bet you will love it too! :)
