from "Frank Stitt's Southern Table" by Frank Stitt

For a decadent springtime splurge, prepare this glorious pink dessert with the finest, ripest strawberries and the richest ice cream. In fact, a good gauge for the perfect berry shake is to keep adding the strawberries until the color is right—a bright shocking pink!

Serves 4

2 cups quartered ripe strawberries, plus 4 whole berries for garnish
1/2 cup sugar
8 scoops strawberry ice cream
2/3 cup half-and-half
Lightly sweetened whipped cream

Print Print recipe

Place the strawberries in a large bowl, add the sugar, and toss to coat. Cover and let the strawberries macerate at room temperature for 2 hours, (the strawberries can be macerated up to 1 day in advance and refrigerated, covered.)
Put the strawberries and their juices into a blender or a food processor and process to a rough purée. Transfer to a bowl.
Make two shakes at a time: add 4 scoops of the ice cream and half of the strawberry purée to the blender, add half of the half-and-half, and blend until thoroughly combined.
Pour into two chilled tall glasses. Repeat to make the remaining two milk shakes. Garnish each with a whole strawberry and a little spoonful of whipped cream. Serve with straws.
