I'll confess this is not a traditional Italian Gelato recipe, but it's not technically an ice cream either. It doesn't have any real cream in it to make it an ice cream. Gelatos are typically made with whole milk, which this recipe does have. Rarely does Gelato have sweetened condensed milk in it either.

Regardless of the name, I promise you will enjoy this extremely Creamy Strawberry Gelato.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
