I have never owned a food processor. Why? I don’t know, but I recently purchased one and there is just no going back now. I’ll throw anything in there and give it a spin. Yesterday I decided to try frozen strawberries and the result was very yummy. If you don’t have a food processor, I’m sure a heavy duty blender would work as well. This is cold, refreshing and low in carbs and calories!
Strawberry Italian Ice
Throw your frozen strawberries, lemon juice, and lemon zest into your food processor.
Over medium heat, combine your sweetener & water and stir until the sweetener is fully dissolved and you have a simple syrup.
Pour your syrup over the strawberry mixture and puree until smooth.
Pour mixture into a shallow dish & cover tightly with plastic wrap or into popsicle molds and freeze. It is really that simple!
