"This tasty strawberry treat is from THE BEST OF COOKING by Arne Kruger & Annette Wolter (pineapple variation also noted). It was described as a "pre-dinner" drink, but works as an after school treat or dessert & might also be fun for a family of 4 to share -- As written for the kids for the 1st 2 portions & then adding 2 tbsp rum for the 2 adult portions. (Time does not include 30 min for the strawberries to "sit" in the sugar) Enjoy!"

Step 1

Halve strawberries & place in a bowl. Sprinkle w/the sugar, stir to combine & leave for 30 min to sweeten the strawberries & extract their juice.

Step 2

Using a blender (or immersion blender) puree strawberries & juice created.

Step 3

Except for the ice cubes, add the remaining ingredients & blend until well-mixed. Pour into 4 glasses & add 1 ice cube to each glass.

Step 4

NOTE: I entered this recipe as written, but dislike the watered effect from ice cubes. So I freeze the milk in a freezer container (or ice cube tray) as my 1st prep step. Using very cold milk w/the ice crystals that often form means no ice cubes are needed when prep is done & you are ready to serve when blending is done.

Step 5

PINEAPPLE VARIATION: Replace strawberries w/canned or fresh pineapple & use vanilla ice cream.

Tips & Variations


  • Immersion blender if not using a standard blender.
