Strawberry Basil Buttermilk Ice Cream

Strawberry Buttermilk Ice Cream

So.. who likes ice cream?  I am intrigued by the flavor of basil in things where it would not normally belong.  This is really good – it belongs.

This had a great texture, and did not have a ‘heavy’ feel to it. The family loved it. I would change one thing by adding the basil to the strawberries when I put them in the food processor. I also did NOT strain mixture through a strainer.
