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 can´t stand in front of yogurt, really I just don't like it. But if we change the recipe just a little... let´s said that we add cream instead of yogurt, now that will be a delicious food. Thanks for the tip!

Interesting way to do ice cream, it's like to make a smoothie but without milk or water, only with yogurt. Breathtaking.

My favorite dessert is absolutely 'Baklava'. It is probably most amazing dessert in world. With butter und pistachio you can cook unbeliable und grateful tastes. You must be sure that when you take the baklava out of the oven, immediately pour the hot syrup. And then wait approximately one hour to eat. But you should not eat many times in a day. You ought to consume often. Its calories is very high.
