Strawberry Ice Cream- Vegan and Non-Vegan Versions

Note from Spago executive pastry chef Sherry Yard:  Adjust the sugar to the sweetness of the berries used. 
Yael says: “This is one of my favorite recipes!  I have made it for years, and it is always amazing. You can make it in a non-dairy version, which is great if you’re vegan or not wanting to mix meat and milk for Shabbat. I have made both recipes for my family, and they have a hard time telling the difference between the dairy  and the non-dairy one. To prepare it non-dairy, you would add Soyatoo! Soy Whip and omit the heavy cream. You can purchase Soyatoo at Whole Foods on Wilshire and 23rd.
Makes: 3 cups
1 1/2 pounds ripe strawberries, stems removed
