1. Put the strawberries, milk, sugar, vanilla extract, and
salt into a blender and blend on High until completely
smooth and homogenous, 40 to 50 seconds. Pour into
a bowl and stir in the heavy cream. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled, preferably overnight.
2. Assemble the Mix It In™ Soft Serve Ice Cream Maker
with paddle secured and dispenser handle in its
upright position. Turn on and pour in the chilled base.
Churn until the desired serving consistency is reached,
25 to 30 minutes. If ice cream is not thick enough,
pour back into the freezer bowl and continue mixing
until desired consistency is reached, checking every
few minutes. The ice cream will have a soft,
creamy texture.
3. Serve in cups or cones, adding toppings while
dispensing ice cream
