Yes, I deviated from the recipe and added 2 cups of pureed sweetened strawberries. Unlike the last time I made ice cream, this time my machine froze properly and I actually got 'ice cream' instead of 'milkshake'. I think the trick was leaving the freezer bowl in the freezer for 1/2 week instead of just 24 hrs. This ice cream was super creamy, refreshing but surprisingly not too rich. Dorie does it again and impresses me with the simple perfectionism of her recipes. They just have that 'wow' factor. This was the perfect treat for our superhot weather.
