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!

I was craving dessert and when I came across this recipe, I wanted to make it as soon as I came across it. I used molasses instead of honey and it was very good.

I already knew how to make ice cream at home but I learned another way with this recipe. It's incredible that such beautiful food can be made with simple ingredients. Also the chef's three different presentations really make this simple recipe stand out. It's appearance is no different from ice cream made with milk.

I have to say only this, I love it! It looks very refreshing and tasty. It is very easy recipe. On the otherhand, Chef showed us how we can present it in different forms. Even that, these forms are easy to prepare, too. So this recipe is perfect. We can do our delicious and simple ice-cream anymore. I feel excited to make this recipe!

I love how creative his food is, it makes you really think about what types of food go together. I would have never thought about a little balsamic with strawberry icecream. This is great for using the frozen raspberries I have left. Also we have quite a bit of shortbread left do this puts it to use.

The recipe looks very easy and delicious. I really liked that the chef presented the recipe in 3 different ways. The little tips he gives when he tells us the recipe can also be useful in our daily life. I think this will be the first recipe I will make when I get my new blender that I bought.

It looks like a very delicious ice cream with its appearance and content. A very good recipe for summer. Since I also love strawberries, wanting to try them has become one of the recipes. But I would zest a lemon in it to make it more sour. I would also garnish with strawberry pieces. I would love to taste what the chef is doing too.
