Quick and Easy Strawberry Ice Cream

Creaming vanilla ice cream with raspberry sherbet creates ice cream that tastes homemade. I like to blend in chopped frozen raspberries and strawberries. This dessert can be ready to serve in less than 10 minutes with the help of an electric stand mixer.

  • 1 1/2 quarts vanilla ice cream good quality, softened
  • 1 1/2 quarts raspberry sherbet softened
  • 12 oz frozen strawberries do NOT thaw
  • 12 oz frozen raspberries do NOT thaw


  1. In a very large bowl or a 7-quart bowl of a stand mixer, stir the ice cream and sherbet together until smooth.  Stir until the frozen berries are mixed in well.  Spoon into a freezer container and freeze until ready to serve.  

  2. In the bowl of a food processor add the strawberries and pulse until they are the size of peas.  Pour over the ice cream mixture.  Repeat with the raspberries and add them to the ice cream mixture.

  3. Stir until the frozen berries into the ice cream mixture until the berries are mixed in well.  Spoon into a freezer container and freeze until ready to serve.  

Recipe Notes

  • For a smaller batch of ice cream, simply mix equal parts of vanilla ice cream and raspberry sherbet.
  • Have trouble finding raspberry sherbet?  Use raspberry sorbet.  
  • Use the best quality vanilla ice cream you can find/afford. 
  • Create your own flavor by mixing vanilla ice cream with other flavored sherbet or sorbet.  
  • Ice cream can be stored in smaller quart or pint containers or cardboard ice cream cartons.
  • Add a bow and a tag for a delicious gift. 
  • If you're looking for a dairy-free option, just use equal amounts of dairy-free ice cream and sorbet.   I personally like a coconut-based ice cream blended with mango sorbet.  Heavenly!
  • If you don't like chunks of fruit in your ice cream, swap out the fruit for chocolate chips OR use both!
