Italian Ice Recipe

(Adapted from The Food Network Magazine)


Want your summer treat more on the icy rather than the creamy side? Try an Italian ice like the kind you could get from the corner grocery when you were little. This recipe will save you some coin too, since you'll make it at home.

Level: Easy | Yield: 4 cups | Prep Time: 2 hr. 40 min.

What you'll need:

  • 3 cups strawberries, chopped (or 3 cups pineapple, chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

First, blend the fruit, sugar, honey and lemon juice with 2 cups of ice in a blender or a food processor until chunky. Then, add another cup of ice and continue to blend until the mixture is completely smooth. Next, pour the mixture into a baking pan and freeze. Next, scrape up the ice with a fork until it turns into a slush-like mixture. Freeze again until firm, which should take about 2 more hours. Once it has frozen then you can scoop it into paper cups and slurp away!
