  • 1 lb fresh strawberries
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 tablespoons canned coconut milk lite or full fat
  • 1/4 cup unsalted pistachios chopped


  • Heat water over medium heat in a small saucepan. Stir in sugar and cook until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Wash strawberries, remove the green tops, and cut in halves. Place in blender.
  • Pour sugar water over berries in the blender and puree until smooth.
  • Pour berry mixture into a 9"x13" baking dish and place in the freezer.
  • Every 20-30 minutes, run a fork through the berry mixture to break apart large frozen pieces. Repeat the process until berry mixture resembles a snow cone texture; about 2 hours.
  • Divide puree into containers, top with coconut cream, and pistachios.
