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!

Although his English accent made it a bit difficult to understand, he was knowledgeable about making ice cream. I learned a lot about making ice cream in such a short amount of time. I never thought that vinegar could be used with ice cream. His presentation skills were also very good, and he gave practical tips. However, the studio atmosphere and color choices were a bit disturbing. Overall, I think it is a good resource for those who want to learn about making ice cream.

First, I like his eagerness to give what he has he is very smiling and has high-level energy. Secondly, the recipe that he gives looks basic and accessible so he encourages us to make the recipe. Lastly, he does all of it at an audible English level. British but not that hard.

As a gastronomy student, I didn't know how to make ice cream so easily and quickly. It looks so delicious I would love to try it. I especially loved the presentation made with meringue. I think that presentation is a very good idea. I will keep in my mind!

The British accent was a bit more difficult for me to understand, but your tone of voice and gestures helped me to understand. The liquor detail intrigued me. We used to make this recipe with blackberries and mint when I was a kid. It's not exactly ice cream for me, but the image on the plate looks like ice cream. I really enjoyed your detailed explanation and the way you explain it. It's nice of you to give little tricks.

I don't think it's exactly ice cream. It looks delicious as a refreshing healty snack. When we were little we used to pick blackberries and make 'ice cream' like this. It reminded me of my childhood. without liquor of course :)

I especially liked that the recipe was simple and quick. It also looks healthy and may well be healthier. Also, I have no doubt that it will be delicious with biscuits. I loved the recipe.
