Oh Sweet Summertime

Need a sweet treat to cool those hot summer days? Here is a simple but elegant answer to your needs. If you are extra daring, you might drizzle this dessert with a bit of Basalmic vinegar. mmmmmmm....

Strawberry Sorbet Surprise

2 10-ounce packages frozen strawberries in syrup, thawed
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 cups quartered fresh strawberries
2 teaspoons sugar
Vanilla Bean ice cream

Place first 3 ingredients in blender. Pulse until smooth, about 1 minute. Transfer to ice cream maker. Process according to manufacturer's instructions.You could even just chill it in a glass bowl in the freezer (make sure you stir it regularly).

Smash remaining strawberries with the sugar and let sit for fifteen minutes. Put about ¼ cup strawberries in a bowl. Scoop one serving of vanilla ice cream and one serving of sorbet and place on top of the mashed strawberries. Serve with a cookie if you want.
