Easy, no-churn Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream is bursting with roasted strawberry flavors and chunks of delicious pound cake.
A few weeks ago I shared this strawberry shortcake ice cream over at This Gal Cooks and today I am excited to share it with you! After the crazy busy week I have had, I could sure go for a few scoops.
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. It makes a perfect dessert for the hot summer days that lie ahead and 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!
As luck would have it a few months ago I made a double batch of my favorite pound cake and stashed a couple of slices away in my freezer. I knew then that I wanted to make a strawberry shortcake ice cream soon. I absolutely loved the different textures and flavors packed into each bite of this ice cream and so did everyone who tried it. I hope you will too, enjoy and happy ice cream making!

You can use store bought pound cake, but this Half Pound Cake I mentioned above really is amazing!

I think I commented on this over at This Gal Cooks, but it’s so amazing it definitely warrants another comment! Wow, this is brilliant, and I can’t wait to try it! Also, an excuse to make extra pound cake is always warranted 🙂

This looks incredible Emily! Ice cream and cold drinks are all that I want lately since the weather has been so hot here and this no churn one sounds fantastic! I am such a sucker for anything with strawberries lately and this ice cream sounds perfect – pinning 🙂
Thanks Kelly, I am the same way when the weather heats up
