Since I don’t have an ice cream maker, I had to get creative on how to make it at home. I started with 2 pints of strawberries. I cut up one and a half of them and put them on a sheet pan, then put them in the freezer until they were little strawberry ice cubes.
I took the other pint, plus 2 cups of water and 1/2 cup of sugar, and cooked it all down until I had strawberry syrup. Once the syrup was completely cooled, and the berries were all frozen, I put it all in my blender and pureed it up like a milkshake. I put it all in a plastic bowl, and popped it back into the freezer to harden over night.
The next day it was all frozen together, so I set it out on the counter for a few minutes before serving (just like I do ice cream.) It’s soooooo easy, and soooooo good! I’ve tried it with peaches and with pineapples, and both of them are amazing, too!
The strawberry makes twelve 1/2 cup servings, and only 75(ish) calories per serving.
