One of my favorite summertime memories is of sitting with my cousins on my grandfather’s front porch watching my grandfather make ice cream. He used to have one of those old hand crank ice cream makers and my cousins and I would all sit together watching and waiting anxiously for the ice cream to thicken. The flavor my grandfather loved to make most was strawberry ice cream.

Ice cream on a sweltering summer day in southeast Louisiana was just about the only thing that would cool us down and that ice cream couldn’t be made quickly enough.

All you need to do is pour the cream in a bowl and whisk it until stiff peaks form.

Then, gently fold the whipped cream into the condensed milk. Add the vanilla extract, chopped strawberries, and pieces of chocolate.

Pour the mixture into a freezer safe container to freeze. Once the ice cream has frozen, grab a spoon and enjoy!
