This was a wonderfully refreshing less sweet dessert. Kids and hubby loved it. I adjusted the amount of simple syrup based on the sweetness of the strawberries. I also served it with a dollop of whipped cream on top. Again not too sweet... Very light and something I will definitely make again. Read More

I loved this! I couldn't help myself and I ate it as soon as I was done blending it. I'm sure it would be even better had I chilled it. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Read More

Really enjoyed this but if I were to make it again I'd exclude the lemon juice. ( I might've just used an excessively large lemon) It was very tart. Read More

I used 1 Tbs Agave syrup instead of the 2Tbs simple syrup, and it was perfect. Refreshing and not overly sweet. We had it before dinner, but it would be great after dinner too. Read More

Yummy. I had frozen strawberries and plums from my summer harvest and used coconut milk mango juice and bottled lemon juice. I didn't measure just blended until it reached the consistency I wanted. Delicious! Read More
