I got an ice cream maker a few months ago....and I`ve been making ice cream like crazy. Almost obsessive-like. My favorite food ever is ice cream. I eat it for breakfast, lunch snack, dessert, midnight snack and all else in between.
Trust me, I am not proud to admit this. I won`t tell you not to do this...but I won`t stop you either. ;)
So one day I went crazy buying stuff to make different ice cream flavors with like fresh strawberries, toffee bits, peppermint extract, chocolate, and etc.
A sad reality hit me soon after I bought all of these ingredients. I couldn`t make all of them in one day. I couldn`t eat them fast enough either! LOL.
So I had to make a really really tough decision. What flavor should I make next?
I decided on these. Since strawberries weren`t going to last all that long, I decided to cut and hull them before placing them in the freezer until they were frozen. (I put them in the freezer the day before making these, but I`m sure several hours will be good enough.)
I think the sour cream really made these taste like frozen yogurt. It's slightly icy after I had it in the fridge for awhile, but it still taste like frozen yogurt! I loved eating this. It was definitely refreshing to eat during the summer for sure. Plus, it is incredibly simple to make!
FYI, my ice cream in the picture looks funny because instead of buying a scoop, i bought an ice cream spade. My ice cream scoop broke, so I wanted to buy a new one. I bought it online, but it didn`t occur to me that an ice cream scoop and an ice cream spade was different. I`m not sure why.
