Strawberry Lime Ice Cream

Strawberry Lime Ice Cream
I love the sweet-tart flavour of strawberry and lime together, they combine perfectly in this creamy, yet fresh and zippy ice cream.  I kept this recipe really simple to let the pure flavours come through.  This ice cream is really easy and quick to prepare, my three year old son did everything, with the exception of turning on the blender. I have to wait  until he is on the couch, well hidden under a blanket, to turn the blender on in this house.  If your kids like to help in the kitchen this recipe is great, there is really no way to mess it up (not that they ever mess anything up :)
Strawberry Lime Ice Cream
3 cups strawberries, fresh
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tbsp lime zest
1 tbsp lime juice, freshly squeezed
1 1/2 cups whipping cream

Combine Strawberries, sugar, lime zest and lime juice in a blender and puree.  Add whipping cream and blend.  Pour mixture into ice cream maker and follow manufacturers directions.  Ice cream makers generally freeze ice cream to a soft serve consistency. For firmer ice cream transfer to a freezer safe sealable container and freeze for an additional 2 hours.
