Strawberry Waffle Cone Ice Cream


We enjoyed a Father's Day outing at my sister and brother in law's home. My sister's husband cooked up some delicious smoked ribs. We enjoyed cheesy potatoes, salads and I was asked to bring dessert.

My husband and I recently enjoyed Cedar Crest ~ Blueberry Waffle Cone Ice Cream.

I thought I would try to make Strawberry Waffle Cone Ice Cream.

I used the following recipe to make my Strawberry Ice Cream.

Strawberry Ice Cream

2 ½ cups sugar

1 cup of whole milk

4 egg yolks

2 cups of pureed strawberries

1 cup of  ½ & ½

1 cup of heavy cream

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

In a medium sauce pan, whisk together sugar, milk and egg yolks.  Place pan over medium high heat and whisk until mixture reaches a simmer. Lower heat to medium and whisk mixture for 5 minutes or until it begins to thicken. Strain into a large bowl, then whisk in strawberries, ½&½, heavy cream and vanilla. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled. About 2 hours ( I let mine sit overnight). 

Pour mixture into ice cream maker; process according to manufacturer instructions.

After the ice cream making process, I folded in the chunks of waffle cone.


 I am happy to report my Strawberry Waffle Cone Ice Cream was a big hit!



  1. Yum that ice cream looks so good. Glad everyone enjoyed it. Your whole meal sounded wonderful. Glad you could enjoy the day with family for Father's Day. So nice to feel life coming back to us. The little things like enjoying family outings have been so missed. Have a great new week. xoxo Kris

  2. Ohhhh my, does that ever sound good, in this heat!!!!!!!

    😎 😎 😎 😎

  3. Strawberry Ice Cream, Yummy! And homemade is even better. It looks wonderful, Carla. And so refreshing on this hot Summer day. Supposed to be in the upper 90's this week. Your smoked ribs and cheesy potatoes sound so good. : )

    Have a blessed week, dear friend.


  4. I bet it was a big hit! I was craving strawberry ice cream yesterday, and we brought some home from the Piggly Wiggly. :D
    Your homemade with the waffles looks better, though.

  5. That looks ah-mazing!!! I don't have an ice cream maker, but since my daughter has become such a little baker over the last year it might be a worthwhile investment. I was hesitant to buy her a KitchenAid mixer but she basically uses it every day. What kind of ice cream maker do you have?

  6. Oh Carla....this sounds so good. I know it was a big hit. I'm keeping this recipe and going to try it soon... Have a great week

  7. I have no doubts that your ice cream was a big hit. I does looks delicious and who wouldn't want such a lovely homemade desert after a nice meal. I used to be able to eat strawberries until I developed a severe allergy to strawberries. I used to have my own little Strawberry U-Pick years ago. I could pick them but couldn't eat them. The smell of fresh strawberry would drive me crazy.

    Thanks for sharing the recipe.
    Hugs, Julia

  8. That strawberry ice cream looks simply delicious! Been a long time since we've had homemade ice cream.

  9. Sounds heavenly!!! In fact the whole meal. I haven't had home made ice cream in eons.

  10. Are you kidding me right now, Carla? You made that? I am impressed. I'm not sure I'd even attempt it! Sounds SO good! You're very talented ... xoxo

  11. Oh my, that certainly looks and sounds delicious! Hope the weather is treating you well these days. We're getting a round of "normal" June temps with plenty of rain. Early July looks warm again, but at least we had some soaking precipitation. :)

  12. For some reason we called ice cream "frozen custard" when I was young and it was made in much the same way as your delicious Strawberry Waffle Cone creation! Cooked and then cranked. Yours looks so yummy!!!

  13. Yum, that sounds delicious! Thanks for your recipe.

  14. It gets a big YUM from me.
    The ice cream looks delicious.

    All the best Jan

  15. That sounds sooo good! We have so many black raspberries right now, we might try and change this up to use some of our berries :)
