I love a good scoop of chocolate ice cream pretty much anytime of the year, but in the hot summer months I am partial to something a little more fruity. This strawberry shortcake ice cream is smooth and creamy, with bits of pound cake and a delicious roasted strawberry swirl. Plus the best part about this recipe is how easy it is to make – it’s no cook and to top it all off you don’t need an ice cream maker!

A couple of months ago I made a double batch of our favorite pound cake and stashed a couple of slices away in my freezer knowing that I was going to make some variation of a strawberry shortcake ice cream soon and boy am I so glad that I did. I just loved the different textures and flavors packed into each bite of this ice cream, I hope you will too!

    • Hi Serene!
      I had a good time at the conference and after Friday, the weather was amazing! I really need to visit Miami more often. I live only 1 1/2 hours away so why not?!

      Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out Emily’s recipe. Hope you had a great weekend!

  6. I looove no ice cream maker required ice cream recipes! And this one just looks amazing! Thank you for sharing, Emily; can’t wait to try it!

  7. Thank you for the nice recipe.

  8. I think I need a bowl of this icecream, and NOW! It looks so amazing! Anything with strawberries is delicious, but this looks out-of-this-world good! Pinned!

  9. Great to see you here Emily! Pinned! Love how refreshing this is!

  10. This looks awesome! I’ve done strawberry cheesecake fudge, but this seems like the next step up. I love it!

  11. This is so refreshing!! Perfect for the upcoming weekend BBQs

  12. This ice cream with strawberries and cake looks very very good! Yummy!

  13. Yummmm!!! I love homemade ice cream! We actually have a little countertop ice cream maker that is really handy, but it’s super nice to not have to drag it out. This looks awesome Emily!

    • Thanks for stopping by and checking out Emily’s crazy good ice cream, Heather! Haha, I hear ya about dragging out the ice cream maker. It’s such a pain in the butt!

  14. I agree, in the summer, the fruitier options sound so much better! I would take a bowl of this is a heartbeat over chocolate (*gasp*) especially because of how easy it is! Five ingredient ice cream? Yes please! Pinning!

  15. This is a winner. I happen to love strawberry ice cream. Leftover from childhood I guess, because I feel kind of little girly when I eat it. And I happen to left over pound cake in my freezer that I thought would end up in a bread pudding. But not now!

  16. wahoooo…. you’re mixing up a summer party in this ice cream!
