Very Berry Ice

Very Berry Ice
You can use fresh strawberries or raspberries, if you like. Gently rinse the fresh berries in a colander and drain. Remove stems and hulls from fresh strawberries.

2 cups frozen strawberries or raspberries

1-1/2 cups water

1/2 cup honey

2 tablespoons lemon juice

Partially thaw frozen berries by setting them out in a bowl at room temperature just until slightly icy (about 20 minutes); do not drain thawed berries.

In a blender container combine berries, water, honey, and lemon juice. Cover and blend on high speed about 1 minute or until mixture is smooth. (If you are using raspberries, you may want to strain the mixture through a sieve to remove seeds)

Pour into an 8x4x2-inch loaf pan. Cover pan with foil. Place pan in the freezer and freeze about 6 hours or until mixture is firm.

Remove pan from freezer about 15 minutes before serving. Use an ice-cream scoop or spoon to scoop or scrape ice into serving bowls.

Makes 6 servings

Make-Ahead Tip: Prepare the mixture as above. Freeze the mixture up to 3 days.
