Strawberry ice cream a la Vitamix

strawberry ice cream

I love eating seasonally and you won’t get better strawberries than the ones out RIGHT NOW! My family eats gluten, dairy and refined sugar free, which can be a challenge when it comes to summery treats. Fortunately my kitchen saviour makes whipping up ice cream too easy.

For this recipe you’ll need to remove the stalks from your strawberries and give them a good wash If they’re big I cut each one into four pieces, then place in the freezer in a Tupperware box or bag. They only need an hour or so before they’re frozen solid and you can begin making your ice cream.

Ingredients (for two kids portions):
Large handful of frozen strawberries
50-100ml milk of choice*


– put the frozen strawberries into your blender

– add 50ml of milk and start blending** on a low speed

– gradually increase the speed to bring the ingredients together, adding more milk if you need to

– when it looks like the photo above it’s ready

– serve immediately 🙂

*I’ve been making my own coconut milk lately, stay tuned for the super easy recipe

**I’m sure you could use any blender or food processor, but would probably need extra milk

  1. Frozen strawberries are a must buy every week, I wonder if I can get same texture with my blender.

    Have you seen a Yonanas machine? Makes ‘ice cream’ using real fruits no milk needed. I’m going to post a review soon.

  2. This looks so enticing! I am in for coconut milk recipe! In my country (Philippines) we dont have milk at all and but we have lots of coconut! So we add coconut & coconut milk (and juice too) on everything! I would want to see your recipe! #TatsyTuesdays

  3. YIKES thanks so much for pointing that out, can’t believe I missed it! That’ll teach me for posting straight from tablet and not doing enough of a sanity check beforehand!! I’ve updated the post now 🙂

    I was the same, and lusted after mine for almost a year before actually buying it over two years ago. It gets used every single day, and has elevated my kitchen abilities. I honestly cannot recommend it highly enough! I’m currently following the save a pound a day method, just to accumulate a little cash before Xmas this year. If you did the same you would have saved enough by next September… worth a thought xx

  4. Looks lovely! I think you need to specify frozen fruit though cos if you followed the instructions you would have smoothie! My sister and I were talking about the Vitamix last night…neither of us could quite justify that cost!!

  5. I lusted over mine for almost a whole year before buying in May 2012. Since then I have used it every single day, often multiple times. It is AMAZING!

  6. Between the frozen fruit, just a small amount of milk and a powerful blender or food processor you’ll have instant ice cream 🙂 a milkshake would need three or four times the milk than what is necessary here…
