This morning our daughter Rachel made up a batch of this delicious, but simple, dessert to enjoy with our breakfast. It can be made with almost any fruit, though strawberries are a favorite choice for our family. Honestly, I’m not sure if I should call it a drink or a dessert. Maybe we will just call it both since you drink it like a smoothie but it fits more in line with a sweet treat/dessert.
This would be an ideal treat during the warm months of summer and a great way to top off a meal. I know we will be having more of this, especially since strawberry season is just around the corner. We have some great strawberry farms around here – This Farm is where we usually go to pick our own strawberries in the spring. There is nothing like truly fresh strawberries.
Now without any further delay, here is the recipe.
Strawberry Ice Drink/Dessert
4 cups of ice
1/2 carton of Whipped Cream
1/2 carton Strawberries
1 1/2 cups sugar
Put half of the ingredients in the blender, mix until smooth and then add the remaining ingredients. Mix well and pour into cups. Note: This is a pretty forgiving recipe, feel free to adjust amounts based on taste and consistency.
So now it’s your turn – What kind of fruit would you substitute? Share in the comments below.
Keeping it Simple,
