Ingredients

3 cups fresh ripe strawberries, stemmed and sliced
1 1/2 cups sugar, divided
1 1/4 cups whole milk
2 3/4 cups heavy cream
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Preparation

1
In a small bowl, combine the strawberries with the lemon juice and 1/2 cup of the sugar.

Stir gently and allow the strawberries to macerate in the juices for 2 hours.
3
Strain the berries, reserving juices.

Stir in the heavy cream, reserved strawberry juice, mashed strawberries, and vanilla.

Turn the machine on; pour the mixture into freezer bowl, and let mix until thickened, about 30 minutes.

Five minutes before mixing is completed, add the reserved sliced strawberries and let mix in completely.
