- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
- 3 ounces low-fat cream cheese
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 2 cups frozen strawberries
- Using a blender, mix the boiling water, sugar and lemon peel until the sugar is dissolved, about 15 seconds.
- Add the cream cheese and vanilla and blend until smooth.
- Add the frozen strawberries and blend on high speed until slushy, about 30 seconds.
This is delicioius. I haven't change a thing (except that I used the zest of 1 lemon). It's not too sweet, it's perfect. Thanks Redsie. Made for 123 hit wonders
