Cook’s note

  • If working with frozen strawberries, use 2 cups of diced frozen strawberries and skip the crushed ice in a recipe. This will make it a little richer, a little colder, and denser.
  • Whole milk works best, but other types work fine, as well
  • For a thick and extra rich drink try half milk and half yogurt (or greek yogurt)
