Strawberry Ice cream: Tangy sweet ice cream to brighten your day

 Do you think we need any reasons to eat ice cream? ^^ If you ask me I can give you some good reasons.

First it's delicious, second it cools us down in a hot day and third it makes us happy, hehe. I love to make ice cream for my family, well I'm lucky enough to have ice cream churning machine, so making ice cream for me is not hard. If you don't have the ice cream machine you still can make it,  but you will need more time. By freeze the mixture and take it out and whip with the hand mixture after 1 hour and do it for 4-5 times or until the mixture is smooth.
This time it's strawberry ice cream, that I want it to have brighter taste so I add the lemon juice into the mixture too ^^. I think this ice cream will make you happy with it sweet and tangy taste. My Suggestion, serve it with a big smile that's enough to make everyone happy, haha.

Pour the heated custard through a fine-mesh sieve or strainer into a bowl. Let it cool completely and refrigerate.
