He prefers it to be rich, creamy, and full of fresh strawberries. And I have to say, I’ve tried many combinations to try and make what I thought he’d think was the “perfect” homemade strawberry ice cream over the years. Finally, I figured out one that is just about as perfect as it gets!

Not too sweet, but just sweet enough to balance between the tartness of the fresh strawberries, this strawberry ice cream recipe sure fits the bill in the creaminess department, too

And since Mama is sensitive to eggs, I try to make our ice creams egg-free as much as possible now. I’ve also found that it simplifies things when you don’t have to make the cooked custard before making the ice cream.

I’m all about finding the simplest way to do things! Especially if the results are just as good, if not better!

  1. I’ve made your old fashioned vanilla ice cream several times and I think it is great. I am curious about no eggs in this recipe. Does the cream cheese help to make it more creamy? I am willing to try it but wondered if I could also simply add strawberries to the other recipe. Thank you for these great recipes. Since spring 2020 I make all of my ice cream and have really enjoyed it.


    1. I have not tried adding fruit to the Old Fashioned Vanilla Ice Cream, Lisa, but others have said they did successfully. I’m not sure how much they added. The strawberry ice cream is creamy and delicious. I hope you try it.
