Frozen Strawberry Bliss!

The summer time is a perfect time for frozen treats! And what better treat than a sweet strawberry dessert? This dessert cannot, and I repeat, CANNOT get any easier! It literally takes about 2 minutes to whip together!

Thank the kitchen gods for high powered blenders! They make whipping up desserts a breeze!

There is just something about frozen strawberries that has that ability to just melt in your mouth and bring about feelings of pure bliss! At least for me anyway…lol.

Most Gelato recipes for me have turned out chunky. All the other recipes I have tried, just cannot compare to the creamy and irresistible consistency of this recipe!

The Secret Ingredient

Have you ever tried to make a frozen dessert in your blender, only to get a chunky and dissapointing consistency? Or, when you put it in the freezer and then go to take a bite the next day, it is literally frozen solid? Well, I have had that experience, and I have to tell ya…It aint fun! I get so frustrated, that I usually have to throw it away!

This bad boy has a secret ingredient that I think you will be surprised about.

Rasberry Vodka!

Yup…VODKA! Don’t worry though…it is not enough to even get a buzz on. There is only a minimal amount. But, the effect that the vodka has on the consistency is heavenly! And I dare say, I like the flavor better when the vodka is part of the mix!

I use raspberry Vodka, but you can use any flavor you want. I like the raspberry because it gives the strawberry flavor a bit of a twist.

I like how my backdrop is hanging off the table. Lol.

Note for Trim Healthy Mama’s: Because this has the vodka in it, I am not entirely sure what this dessert would technically land on in a Trim Healthy Mama category. I would say that if you use a nut milk, that it could be a Fuel Pull (FP), but if you use the half and half, then it would definitely fall in to the Satisfying (S) category. I will have to check into it and see what it technically on THM.

 Go make It!

Because this is so dang easy… it is perfect for those last minute desserts that you need to make in a pinch. Maybe your in-laws dropped by un-announced and you need something quick and easy. Whip out the good stuff! It will be sure to please!

If you have an uncontrollable urge for a frozen strawberry treat with a twist… This recipe is perfect! It is also so much better than binge eating a pint of ice-cream, that you will FOR SURE regret later! Go with this healthy and deliciously creamy alternative!

Now that your mouth is watering…Go make it!

Enjoy!
