There’s no doubt that the ultimate summer dessert is ice cream – and though I love store-bought ice cream or something from Mr. Softee, nothing beats homemade ice cream.
Strawberries have been so perfect and delicious this summer, and I have been buying tons of them. I’m not the biggest fan of strawberry ice cream, but I definitely wanted to incorporate some of them into the ice cream without overpowering it.
I was trying to come up with ideas for the base flavor, and I narrowed it down to three – chocolate, peanut butter, and banana. All three pair very well with strawberry, but I decided on banana because it has the mildest flavor and I felt it would truly let the fresh strawberries shine.
