I simply adore strawberry shakes or any such creamy cold drinks. Ofcourse I am convinced the milk and strawberries are full of calcium and antioxidants. So , in that vein I was delighted to discover this recipe on the internet, using a combination of fresh raspberries, so heavenly coupled with sorbet for intensity and ice cream…wow
21/2 pints raspberries(about 7 cups)
1 pint raspberry sorbet
1 tablespoon lime zest
1/4 cup fresh lime juice (from 2-3 limes)
1 cup vanilla ice cream
Place 51/2 cups raspberries, the lime juice , lime zest and sorbet in a blender. Puree until smooth. Add ice cream and blend once more. Transfer to a serving jug and stir in the remaining raspberries. Serve cold
