“This tasty strawberry treat is from THE BEST OF COOKING by Arne Kruger & Annette Wolter & it included a pineapple variation I have also noted. It was described as a "pre-dinner" drink, but works as an after school treat or dessert & might also be fun for a family of 4 to share ... as written for the kids for the 1st 2 portions & then adding 2 tbsp rum for the 2 adult portions. (Time does not include 30 min for the strawberries to "sit" in the sugar) *Enjoy*”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Halve strawberries & place in a bowl. Sprinkle w/the sugar, stir to combine & leave for 30 min for juice to be extracted.
  2. Using a blender or immersion blender, puree strawberries & juice created.
  3. Add ice cream, milk, lemon & orange juice, lemon zest + confectioner's sugar & blend till well-mixed.
  4. Pour into 4 glasses & add 1 ice cube to each glass.
  5. NOTE: I entered this recipe as written, but dislike a watered effect from ice cubes. So I freeze the milk in a freezer container as my 1st prep step. Using very cold milk w/ice crystals that often form means no ice cubes are needed when prep is done & you are ready to serve.
  6. VARIATION: Replace strawberries w/canned or fresh pineapple & use vanilla ice cream.
