To make strawberry ice cream from scratch, blend the strawberries (fresh or frozen) along with milk, sugar, and a pinch of salt. Blend everything well until sugar is dissolved and strawberries are pureed.
Now add in the heavy cream and gently mix it with a spatula, there is no need to blend the cream in the blender as the mixture will be churned in the ice cream maker.
For best results, it is advisable to chill the mixture for about 2 hours before churning. Churn the mixture in the ice cream maker for about 25 minutes.
After churning, the strawberry ice cream will be of soft-serve consistency. Freeze it in a freezer-safe air-tight container for about 5-6 hours before serving.
How do you keep fruit soft in ice cream?
To keep fruit soft in the ice cream, it is best to puree them by blending. If you add small pieces or chunks of fruit in the ice cream while churning then they will harden after freezing.
You can always top the ice cream with some fresh fruit pieces while serving.

Homemade ice cream stores best for about a week. It can be stored longer up to a month however, you will see some icy crystals on top of the ice cream. But you can still enjoy it by scooping out the ice crystals.
