This was very yummy and a huge hit with my informal dinner party. Our guests asked for the recipe so she could make it at home and my (often picky) husband loved it. I rated it at five stars because it was easy to make, we loved it, and I think most people who try it would enjoy it as well. However, I do have a couple things to note. First of all, I found the finished product was MUCH too runny to serve immediately. I used a not super powerful blender which contributed, I'm sure, as well as using strawberries that weren't 100% frozen since I they had been frozen whole and I had to take the time to slice them. My finished product was a runny milkshake consistency and didn't even resemble a solid. After sitting in a deep freezer for about 3 hours, it was sufficiently frozen around the edges but still somewhat runny in the center. Still delicious, though! Secondly, the finished product was sweeter and creamier than I liked. Next time I think I would try 1/3 cup sugar and maybe 1/2 cup cream (I used whipping cream, 33% MF) with milk topping up to 2/3 cup. I anticipate that will still be sweeter and creamier than needed, but I would rather slowly step it down than make a flop. Also, I added 1/4 tsp vanilla as a previous reviewer recommended and I'm glad I did. Overall, we really enjoyed this recipe and I will definitely be trying it again. I look forward to experimenting with different flavours!
