The Big Chill
Kid-Friendly Recipe Prep time: 5 minutes  
Freezing time:90 minutes
Yield:3 to 4 Servings


  • Measuring cups
  • Large bowl
  • Potato masher or pastry blender
  • Tablespoon measure
  • Standard ice-cube tray
  • Spoon
  • Serving bowls


  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  1. Place strawberries and orange juice concentrate in a large bowl. Use the potato masher to crush berries and blend the ingredients well.
  2. Pour a tablespoon of the berry mixture into each compartment of an ice-cube tray.
  3. Freeze about 90 minutes, until each cube is the consistency of firm, not liquidy, slush. (If the sorbet freezes for too long, add the cubes to a zip-close bag and gently crush with a rolling pin until they’re slushy.) Using a spoon, transfer the cubes from the tray to a bowl and stir together before serving
