  • ½ lb. fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
  •  + additional whole or sliced strawberries for garnish
  • 2 T to ¼ C Pioneer® Sugar (sweeten to your taste)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream
  • ½ C milk


  1. In a mixing bowl combine the sliced strawberries, Pioneer® Sugar and vanilla extract and stir to combine well. Macerate the mixture to get more juice out of the strawberries, if desired.
  2. Place in refrigerator and allow to marinate for at least 20 minutes and up to 1 hour. (If you want an even colder drink, place the marinated mixture in the freezer for a bit.)
  3. In a large blender or bowl, add the strawberry mixture, ice cream, and milk. Mix on medium until smooth and well-blended.
  4. Pour into glasses. Garnish the top with a sliced strawberry or slit a whole strawberry and place on the rim of each glass (option, dipped in Pioneer® Sugar). Serve immediately.

Cooks Note

You can use frozen yogurt instead of ice cream. Top with sweet whipped cream and/or your favorite cookie crumbles!
