Recipe Notes

-Don't over process the fruit, it's nice to have chunks of fruit in the finished product.

-This recipe is really simple to prepare. Total prep time, about 10 minutes.

-You can make the ice cream ahead of time, then pack it into a container and freeze if you like hard pack ice cream.

-It all depends on the day, but yesterday, it only took 15 minutes for this to set up. I have made ice cream where the freeze time has been 45 minutes...I think it all depends on the weather outside if you are making it outdoors, the temperature of the ingredients, and the type of ice cream.
