Strawberry Jam Ice Cream

Strawberry Jam Ice CreamStrawberry Jam Ice Cream

It’s National Ice Cream Month and I’m so excited to celebrate.  You definitely don’t need an excuse to enjoy a giant waffle cone of deliciously creamy ice cream, especially when it’s 110+ degrees outside. But this month, you should totally be indulging your sweet tooth with ice cream.  I mean, come on, ice cream has it’s own month! I love any kind of ice cream, but there’s something super yum about a fresh strawberry ice cream with a thick swirl of strawberry jam! This one is easy to make a packed full of strawberry flavor!

Strawberry Ice Cream

Strawberry Jam Ice Cream
Recipe type: Dessert, Ice Cream
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2 pints
  • 2 Cups Half and Half
  • 1 Cup Whole Milk
  • ¾ Cup Home made Vanilla Cane Sugar*
  • ½ Cup Strawberry Jam, divided (I made a quick strawberry compote** on the stove)
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • -----------------------------------------------
  • *Homemade Vanilla Sugar
  • Add vanilla seeds from one vanilla bean to your cane sugar and mix together. Store the vanilla bean pod in with your sugar. You can continue to reuse the vanilla bean, just continue to add cane sugar when you run low and replace your vanilla bean when needed.
  • -----------------------------------------------
  • **Strawberry Compote
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, diced
  • ⅛ cup water
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons homemade vanilla sugar
  • Add all ingredients to a small saucepan and bring to a boil
  • Reduce heat to low and reduce until strawberries thicken
  • You can add a small amount of cornstarch for a thicker compote if you want.
  • Notes: You can replace the whole milk with heavy cream if you want a super creamy ice cream.
  1. Follow your the manufacturer's directions for your ice cream maker (I have to freeze my ice cream bowl for 24 hours before using)
  2. In a bow with a lid add the half and half, whole milk and sugar and whisk to combine. At this point, if you have time, refrigerate your mixture for at least 12 hours. This way, you get a nice, rich vanilla ice cream base.
  3. Next add half of your strawberry jam and mix to combine.
  4. Again, follow your manufacturer's directions to make your ice cream
  5. When ice cream is halfway done add the remainder of your strawberry jam
  6. Allow your ice cream to continue churning (my machine turns off automatically)
  7. When your ice cream is done, store in a resealable container in the freezer, or eat all of it right way.
