Strawberry Ice Cream

This homemade strawberry ice cream is DELICIOUS!
The consistency is unlike any other homemade ice cream I've had before....even days later.
It's creamy and perfect. 
Strawberry Ice Cream Like Ben and Jerry's
1 pint fresh strawberries, hulled and chopped
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 large eggs
1 cup sugar, divided
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 cup milk (we used whole)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Combine strawberries, lemon juice, and 1/4 cup sugar in a mixing bowl, set aside in fridge for 1 hour.
2. In large mixing bowl beat eggs until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
3. Gradually add 3/4 cups sugar, mixing well. Stir in milk and vanilla and mix well.
4. Add strawberries with juice and mix well.
5. Gently stir in whipping cream just until combined.**
6. Pour into ice cream maker and follow manufacturer's instructions.

**I actually think Chris beat the whipping cream in and then folded in the strawberries. We believe this may be why it turned out so creamy.
Also, we made this and let it set in the freezer overnight. We didn't want to wait but it was definitely worth it. Do won't be disappointed.
