Ingredients

12 ounces fresh strawberries (hull removed)

3/4 cup sugar

2 cups whole milk

1/2 cup heavy cream

1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

Directions

In a blender combine the strawberries, sugar and whole milk and puree until smooth.

Add in the heavy cream and mix just enough to combine (you do not want to whip the cream). Add in the lemon juice. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Refrigerating overnight is best because it will allow the flavor to intensify.

Transfer the mixture into an ice cream machine and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions. Serve at once with fresh cut strawberries, if desired, or freeze for up to one month.
