Simple Strawberry Cream Freeze

This luscious recipe inspired by simple-living expert Helen Nearing takes strawberries to new levels of pleasure: you don’t need an ice-cream maker to concoct this tangy-sweet and creamy frozen strawberry dessert.


1 quart strawberries (you could also substitute blueberries or raspberries)
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 cups plain Greek-style yogurt
1 cup organic sour cream

1. Mash berries and combine with maple syrup. Fold in the yogurt and sour cream.

2. Place mixture in a shallow pan and put in freezer. Stir every half-hour for 2 hours, then serve.

Serves 6 to 8.

Inspired by Simple Food for the Good Life, by Helen Nearing (Chelsea Green, 1999).
