I made this today, and it really hit the spot. With temps well into the 90's this was a refreshing treat for sure. But I did cheat. I did not push the puree through a sieve. Strawberries just aren't the same to me unless they have that little crunch from the seed. Great recipe and very easy to make.
Made as directed using my Cuisineart ice cream maker kitchen gadget. I don't usually remove seeds from strawberries (not like I would from raspberries, anyway!), and it was so much work since I used a very fine sieve, but I have to say, it was fabulous without the seeds! So, the extra effort was worth it! Great consistency! Thanks, Bluemoon Downunder! Made for Zaar Stars.
5 Stars, even without a Gelateria, made while on vacation using my Vitamix and the condo's freezer, recommend freezing in small glasses or cups; after frozen hard, thaw at least 15 minutes before serving. Very refreshing, great strawberry accent, loved the lime juice to put the accent on the strawberries, powdered sugar meant the sugar dissolved almost instantly. Used as part of the delightful Recipe #313680 #313680 for a real treat. Thanks for posting!

July 2008 update: VERY happy to be back on Zaar after about a two year absence due to having had no internet connection at home, and having been too unwell for a time so that getting re-connected wasn't even a priority! <br> <br>And really looking forward to getting back into the Zaar world and connecting again with the many wonderful people I knew before, and new people, of course!
