Strawberry Icecream

We went strawberry picking with friends earlier in the week and, under cover of a gorgeous spring blue sky, we managed to gather ourselves a bowlful of some absolutely gorgeous fruit. 

I looked at the massive bowl on the bench when we got home and started thinking about what we'd make.  Strawberry jam, strawberry mousse, a sensational strawberry topped Choco Coco Pie from Tenina and a jar of strawberry coulis later, I thought we were approaching done.

There was about 600g of strawberries left so I thought I'd freeze a couple of bags to save for jam later on.  That's when I remembered I already had 3 bags of frozen strawberries in the freezer already ready to go.  So I decided to turn some of the already frozen strawberries into strawberry icecream for the boys.

I've now made it about 3 times since for everyone who's visited our house this week.  It's so simple and so delicious.  You can obviously swap the fruit out for any frozen fruit you've got, so when there's a glut of anything this summer throw some in the freezer and keep this recipe in mind!

Strawberry Fruit Dream

(makes about 2 cups)


20g raw sugar
300g frozen strawberries
1 egg white


1.  Mill raw sugar for 10 seconds on speed 9.
2.  Add fruit and chop for 10 seconds on speed 10.
3.  Insert Butterfly, add egg white and whip for 1 minute on speed 4.

Spoon out and devour straight away.  There won't be any leftover.


  1. Thanks for visiting my blog Brooke…I just LOVE fruity dream…Glad you like the chocolate coconut pie, it is a bit naughty, but wow! right??

  2. We made a batch with Mum & Dad's homegrown strawberries - sensational!

  3. Hi! Can you also freeze Fruity Dream? Or must it always be made fresh each time? Thx! Monica

  4. Hi Monica,

    Yes, you can. If you want it to be super easy to scoop, let it freeze for about 3 hours and then whiz it through again and re-freeze.

    Most of the time, I don't bother and just freeze it the once. (There's usually not enough leftover to make it worth my while!)
