Recipe Notes
  1. Instead of evaporating 1 cup regular milk do use 3/4th cup half and half and 1.5 cups heavy cream for this recipe.
  2. Strawberries and mint are made for each other, do add mint flavor or fresh mint to this ice cream.
  3. For an egg-less version with mint flavor and using hand whisk do refer the recipe HERE .
  4. I added food color to this strawberry custard ice cream to use it up for an another interesting recipe and so food color is optional.

  6. With this natural flavored ice cream you can make Neapolitan Ice Cream.
