A cross between a sorbet and thick drink, this refreshing, virtually fat-free treat takes just seconds to whip up. The secret to preparing it quickly is to keep a selection of chopped fruit in the freezer, then you can simply dip in to select a combination that suits your mood.
- 8 ice cubes
- 8 ounces hulled strawberries, frozen
- 8 ounces fresh pineapple chunks, frozen
- 1?2 cup (125 ml) pineapple juice
- 2 tbsp skim milk powder
- 1 tbsp sugar (optional)
- sprigs of fresh mint or pineapple mint to decorate (optional)
How to make it 15 minutes, plus freezing time
Put the ice cubes in a food processor or heavy-duty blender and process until they are finely crushed. Alternatively, wrap the ice cubes in a tea towel and bash them with a rolling pin, then put them in the processor or blender.
Add the strawberries, pineapple chunks, pineapple juice and milk powder and process again until blended but still with small pieces of fruit and ice visible.
Sweeten with sugar, if necessary. Process briefly using the pulse button.
Spoon into tall glasses, decorate each with a sprig of mint, if you like, and serve with long spoons.
