Lemon ‘n’ Lime Strawberry Ice

I love this icy dessert anytime, but it's especially good in the summer. It's the perfect refresher after dinner. —Marie Rizzo, Interlochen, Michigan

    Great use of abundance of fresh picked strawberries. Used some as a dessert and some as a margarita mix.

    This was one of the best desserts I've ever made. I was shocked at how much flavor there was for this recipe to be so simple.
