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.)
- Mix three ingredients in freezer-proof large mixing bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and partially freeze. (about 45 minutes to an hour).
- Remove from freezer and beat with electric mixer until smooth; about 1 minute. (There will be chunks of strawberries).
- 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.
How can something so good be so simple? This is nice, light and refreshing. I made this as written and garnished with sliced fresh strawberries. Toddler DS really enjoyed the 'pink ice cream.' I used fat-free sour cream and left it in a single bowl, serving from that (removed from the freezer at the start of a meal, just to soften enough to serve). The partial freeze took 2-3 hours in my freezer and yet the edges were frozen while the middle was still a bit runny. It was fine in the mixer nonetheless. We will be enjoying this many times, particularly in the summer. I might even try this with some other fruit. Thanks!
Very good! We liked it at the soft serve consistency best. I couldn't believe how easy this was and very tasty with the sour cream. Thank you for a great recipe.
Yummy! I used vanilla yogurt. So very good and easy to make! Made for the Everyone is Making the Same Thing Photo event.
