Ingredients

Ice Cream:

1 pound frozen strawberries, thawed at room temperature for 10 minutes

One 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Pinch fine salt

2 cups heavy cream, cold

Mix-In Options:

Pretzel: 1 1/2 cups yogurt-covered pretzels, broken-up

Donut: 3 jelly donuts, cut into small pieces

Balsamic: 2 tablespoons reduced balsamic vinegar (Simmer 1/2 cup vinegar until reduced to 2 tablespoons; let cool.

Directions

Special equipment:
A 9-by-5-by-3-inch metal loaf pan, chilled
  1. For the ice cream: Pulse the strawberries in a food processor until you achieve pea-size chunks. Add the condensed milk, vanilla and salt. Pulse to combine; remove to a medium bowl and set aside.
  2. Whip the cream with a mixer on medium-high speed until firm peaks form, about 2 minutes. Fold about 1 cup of the whipped cream into the strawberry mixture with a rubber spatula until combined, then fold the lightened mixture into the whipped cream until well blended. Pour into a chilled 9-by-5-by-3-inch metal loaf pan, and freeze, covered, until thick and creamy, like soft-serve, about 2 hours. Swirl in any desired mix-ins with a spoon. Continue to freeze, covered, until solid and scoopable, about 3 hours more.
