Strawberry’s & Cream Ice Cream

My girls and I LOVE to make homemade ice cream together. Our favorite thing to do is come up with different flavor combinations, get creative, and spend time together. Somehow, we always end up making ‘pink’ ice cream though, which usually means a nice fresh strawberry ice cream.
