Old Fashioned Strawberry Ice Cream

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 1 1/2 Cup Strawberries smashed
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 5 Egg yolks large
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup cream
  • dash of salt


  • Heat the milk and berries gently over medium heat until very hot, but not boiling.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the egg yolks and sugar until light in color.
  • Slowly add 3 tb hot milk mixture to the eggs while whisking.
  • Pour all of the egg mixture into the pan.
  • Gently cook over low to medium heat, until it starts to thicken and reaches 160 degrees F on an instant read thermometer. (Don’t let it exceed 180 degrees, or it will curdle. If you don’t have a
  • thermometer, cook until the custard is thick enough to coat the back of
  • a wooden spoon.)
  • Pour into a clean bowl and add the cold cream.
  • Chill until completely cold.
  • Follow your manufacturer instructions to make the ice cream, then store in a tight lidded container until you serve.

To serve

  • Scoop out the ice cream into dishes and serve with smashed strawberries


I prefer extra strawberries but it can make the ice cream less creamy so be careful on measurements.
