Strawberry Soda Ice Cream

When I saw this recipe in the "Food Network Magazine July/August 2012” I had to buy the magazine.  I modified the recipe a little because I always have cream and milk on hand but would have had to buy half and half, and I used regular cream soda. 
It was sensational.  Myrna’s comment was “Who would have thought cream soda would make such a difference!”   I think thawing the strawberries also helps.  This recipe doesn't require any cooking either, which makes it pretty easy.              
                        Strawberry Soda Ice Cream  
  14           Ounces  Sweetened Condensed Milk -- 1 can
  1             Cup  Whole Milk
     3/4      Cup  Cream Soda -- Big Red or Regular
  1             Cup  Heavy Cream
  6             Ounces  Frozen Strawberries -- thawed and mashed
Whisk the ingredients in a medium bowl.  Churn in an ice cream maker.  Transfer to an airtight container and freeze until firm, at least 2 hours to 4 hours.
If using regular cream soda, add 2-3 drops liquid red food color to mixture before churning.  If desired, coarsely chop 4 or 5 extra frozen berries in the food processor and add them to the mixture.

  1. This is my favorite strawberry ice cream. Great stuff

  2. Made this recipe over the holiday weekend for my family. Everyone loved it! I thought it was best right out of the ice cream freezer before it hardened in the deep freeze but either way it was a big hit! Yummy! I used regular cream soda since I couldn't find Big Red and I did need any food coloring as the mashed strawberries added enough color to make it a nice pink. Thanks!
