Hello, you lovely Food Tubers! OK, Jamie Oliver here. We're going to do a beautiful, quick ... beautiful, fresh, seasonal strawberry ice cream.

It's a brilliant cheat. You're going to love this recipe. It takes about 45 seconds. It's all about strawberries, cream, Pimm's. It's going to be great. 

I'm going to go in with about 500 grams of frozen strawberries. I want about the same quantity of yoghurt and we're going to sweeten it with some honey. So just about a nice tablespoon of honey goes in as well.

OK. Very, very simple. We're just going to whizz that up.

Right, you can see what's happening here, guys, right? It's basically smashing those strawberries into like a little ice.

Mmm! So quick, so refreshing. A little thimble of Pimm's ... delightful. That's really, really good.

A nice little tip: get yourself a spoon, put it in hot water and then just scoop it through the ice cream. And that will just turn into the most beautiful, homemade ice cream.

No cream, no milk. Just fat-free yoghurt, honey, the beautiful strawberries. It's a really clean, honest flavour.

Hmm, oh, that is really good. The Pimm's is so good in it!

Sorry! Oh, it's so refreshing. I love it.

Let me show you a couple of easy things to do with it.

Um, so first up: bog-standard. Beautiful scoop of ice cream. What more do you want apart from two or three of those? 

Right, then I'm thinking a meringue and smash the top off like that. So you put that in there. Bust it in, that goes in. Get some nice balsamic vinegar and just a little drip. Don't think I'm mad. It's a lovely old combo. This is about desserts that take no effort, no time, but deliver on texture and flavour.

And last but not least, we'll get a load of shortbread. And then by magic a tea towel just lands in your hand like that. That's how we roll in Food Tube. And then ... here, look at this. So look what we've got here. We've got beautiful little, you know, shortbread breadcrumbs. We're going to come back in. In here, mister man, to our beautiful strawberry ice cream. And look at that! Come on, man. Cover it with this. And that is like the most kind of wonderful and weird, but delightful, sort of deconstructed sort of crumble, ever!

It is a very practical recipe in today’s world where time is very precious. I wish that both practical and delicious recipes would increase even more, just like this.

Actually, It's one of the easiest recipes I' ve ever seen. Applicable as well as delectable. Everyone can make it easily. Liquor touching made it much more refreshing and auromatic, it's innovative. However, presentation suggestions were a little bit basic and sloppy. They can be improved. On the other hand, the chef is a real showman. He has an amazing scene. He uses his body language very well.

This video made me wanna try the recipe. I enjoyed while watching and listening to him. I learned a lot of techniques to make an ice cream taste better with just a couple of little touches. Why buy an ice cream when I can make my own now?!

Hi Jamie Olivier, first of all I would like to say that your recipe seems extremely useful and simple. Before I watched this recipe I didn’t know how to make a fresh ice cream at home.

Jamie's tone encouraged me to listen to him. Presentation skills were simple but beautiful. His English was fluent, and he spoke understandably despite having a British accent. The atmosphere was pleasant and invigorating, enjoyable to watch and listen to. The details and tips about the recipe supported the recipe and increased its effectiveness.

It's a really quick recipe. Moreover, the materials used consist of a few simple foods. I also liked the fact that it is a recipe that does not contain sugar and additives. I'm thinking of doing it in the summer.
