Family Favorites...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.
