i opted to make a strawberry julius with my quart of freshly picked berries. it was exceptionally delicious and loved by all, but my three year old. he had rather suck the life out of his scoobydoogo-gurt than give it a try. i will make these babies often and have already devised a plan to tweak it-dream whip! i am thinking that the dream whip powder will thicken the mixture a tad more and lend a little flavor. i was also thinking that you could make it a grown up strawberry julius with a shot of rum or alcohol of choice. try this, its berry good. enjoy.
oh, btw, i used about six ice cubes instead of the water.
6/5/09 i wanted to add that the dream whip powder did squat to the julius, so i gave instant vanilla pudding a shot. i threw in about a tbsp per batch and it made the mixture really thick and creamy. that little secret is between you and me. have fun.
