RoW - Strawberry Ice

The summer is in full swing which means hot weather and a need to cool down. Use my Product of the Week, the Manual Food Processor, to make this fast, simple and cool Strawberry Ice.

The Pampered Chef ® Strawberry Ice Recipe

2 tbsp (30 mL) sugar
2 tbsp (30 mL) cold water, divided
2 cups (500 mL) frozen unsweetened strawberries
Cinnamon Crunch Chips (optional)

Place sugar and 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the water in (1-cup/250-mL) Prep Bowl; stir. Microwave on HIGH 20–30 seconds or until sugar is dissolved, stirring once. Add remaining water; stir. Place frozen strawberries in Small Batter Bowl. Microwave on HIGH 30–50 seconds or until strawberries are slightly thawed.

Add one-third of the strawberries to Manual Food Processor; cover and pump handle until coarsely chopped, scraping down sides as necessary. Add and coarsely chop remaining strawberries, one-third at a time, until all berries are coarsely chopped.

Add sugar mixture to strawberries. Cover and process to desired consistency. Serve ice immediately with Cinnamon Crunch Chips, if desired, or place in freezer until ready to serve.
