This rich shake makes a perfect ending to a light summer meal. It's sweet and just a bit fizzy!
2 c. chopped strawberries
1 c. sugar
2 c. water
1/2 c. lemon juice
6 c. strawberry ice cream
1 2/3 c. chilled strawberry soda
In a medium saucepan, combine the strawberries, sugar and water. Mix well. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Reduce the heat and boil gently, stirring often, until the strawberries are very tender -- about 3 minutes. Pour the mixture into a bowl, cover with plastic and refrigerate until cool.
In a blender, puree the strawberry mixture. Pour the puree into a bowl. Add the lemon juice and mix.
To serve, pour about 3/4 c. of the strawberry puree into a chilled glass. Spoon scoops of ice cream into each glass. Add 1/3 c. soda to each glass and mix gently. Garnish with whipped cream.
