    Transfer the mixture to the bowl of a blender or food processor and add the sour cream, heavy cream and lemon juice.  Pulse briefly until almost smooth but still slightly chunky.  Chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour.  Freeze in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

    *Note: I highly recommend using organic strawberries for this recipe.  The flavor is worlds better than their more artificial counterparts.
