Start by putting 6 cups of frozen strawberries into a big pot on medium low. Add 1/2 cup of water and stir around. What you want to do is reduce it and cook out as much liquid as you can.

60 mins. Mine took an hour yours might take shorter or longer. Just keep an eye on it. You just want it thick.

As soon as it is done put it into a bowl and place in an ice bath. Set this aside while you make the other lemon ice cream.

Once the strawberry puree is completely cool, add the rest of the cream, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla to the bowl of a stand mixer and whip just like before.

You want them to be swirled so add 1/3 of the strawberry mixture to the bottom.

Instructions:

Start by putting 6 cups of frozen strawberries into a big pot on medium low. Add 1/2 cup of water and stir around. What you want to do here is reduce it and cook out as much liquid as you can. Mine took an hour yours might take shorter or longer, just keep an eye on it. You just want it thick. As soon as it is done put it into a bowl and place in a ice bath. Set this aside while you make the other lemon ice cream. Zest and juice 2 lemons. Place 1 and 1/2 cups of heavy whipping cream into the bowl of a stand mixer.

Enjoy!

Note: You want to make this the day before you plan on serving and let soften about 15-20 mins before scooping.
