making ice cream at home help!

I tried to make strawberry ice cream and when I was making the custard it seemed like it was thick enough but when I poured it into the bowl it didn't seem thick enough and when I ran it through the ice cream machine it didn't thicken or freeze at all. I put it in the freezer and now I have basically a frozen creamy milkshake on my hands. Is it because the custard wasn't thick enough? Anyone done some ice cream troubleshooting before?!

Is there any way I can fix this now? Is it just time for a milkshake? Thoughts on future batches? I got the temperature up to what the recipe said and it coated the back of the spoon...

This was my recipe I mashed teh strawberries with a pastry blender and added them to the cream before I chilled it in the fridge. (It still didn't seem thick enough when I put it in the fridge either....
