One ingredient Strawberry Ice Cream

Whew! It’s been a crazy couple of weeks.

Between having family in town and trying to get the blog moved over to a self-hosted blog, I’ve been busy. Fortunately, the blog was transferred over and updated over the weekend. And I finally got all the email subscribers transferred over just a few hours ago. :)

The new things I’m most excited about:

1. The home page looks a little different – less scrolling involved to get to more content

2. I’m using a new plugin to format the recipes that allows you to print them without having to print the whole post and the comments. Saving one tree at a time!

3. New ways to share the recipes at the bottom of each post

There are a few other little things that I notice, but you guys won’t. Hopefully I can bring even more to you over time. :)

So I’m finally ready to bring you a new recipe! It’s a simple one, but simple is my favorite kind of recipe.

Have you seen my One Ingredient Banana Ice Cream? If you haven’t you should really check it out. Talk about a healthy and skinny ice cream!

Making ice cream from bananas had me wondering if I could do the same with other fruits. Since strawberries are one of my favorites and I thought they might work well, I gave it a shot.

I froze the berries and then tossed them in the food processor.

The results are awesome! Depending on how sweet your strawberries are, you could add a little sugar or other sweetener, but it’s up to you! And if you like things a little creamier, you could add a scoop of Cool Whip!

I think it’s best eaten right away, but you can freeze it for later if you want. Just know that is freezes pretty hard so you may need to microwave it for about 30 seconds before scooping it into a bowl.

Simple. Healthy. Skinny. Awesome.

And great for the little bit of summer we have remaining. :)

2 cups chopped strawberries

NOTE: If you prefer something a little creamier, try adding a scoop or two of Cool Whip. Also, if you don't eat it right away, you will probably need to microwave it for about 30 seconds before scooping into a dish - it freezes pretty hard.

  1. Woohoo! Congrats on making the switch! I am converting in September, I am nervous and excited! I would love to talk with you more about it!

      Thanks Julianne! Feel free to email me whenever you want to talk about it. I’m happy to share what I learned! :)

  2. Aha! So you made a treat with the strawberries after all – I’ll be trying it next time I go to my friends for dinner. It looks delicious! Only one problem – I don’t see the icons for “share and enjoy” under this specific recipe – the first one I see is under the “Lemon Icebox Pie” – is that what I should use? I also don’t know how to ‘like’ a specific recipe – only your whole blog. I’d rather like to ‘like’ the recipes I particularly enjoy….

  3. This is such a great idea!! I’m glad you got moved okay. It’s so nerve-wracking to do that!

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      Thanks Dorothy! It was nerve-wracking, but glad it’s done and I’m still in one piece :)

  4. I have done this with bananas before, but never strawberries. What a great idea! I’m your newest follower!
