My mom made this easy summertime dessert when we were growing up. It was always popular and so refreshing on a hot summer afternoon. (Cook time is freeze time for a "soft serve" consistency.)

  1. Mix three ingredients in freezer-proof large mixing bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and partially freeze. (about 45 minutes to an hour).
  2. Remove from freezer and beat with electric mixer until smooth; about 1 minute. (There will be chunks of strawberries).
  3. Pour into individual dishes or paper cups if desired. Return to freezer until firm and ready to serve! Will be "soft serve" consistency in about 3 hours. If you prefer it firmer and more like ice cream, freeze for at least 10-12 hours. Garnished with fresh strawberries if desired.
