Curtis Stone's tres leches ices with smashed strawberries


"Known as raspados in Latin America, these shaved ices are quick and easy warm-weather treats," says Curtis Stone. "Muddled strawberries mingle with three milks (condensed, full-cream, and buttermilk for a little tang) and crushed ice, making for an ultra-refreshing fix. Serve with a spoon and a straw so none goes to waste."

You'll need

235 ml sweetened condensed milk 160 ml milk 80 ml (1/3 cup) buttermilk 1 tsp pure vanilla extract 400 gm small strawberries, hulled and halved 20 gm caster sugar 8 cups ice cubes Ground cinnamon, to serve

Method

  • 01
  • Whisk milks and vanilla in a bowl to combine, then cover and refrigerate until well chilled (2-3 hours). This can be done up to 2 days ahead, covered and refrigerated.
  • 02
  • Toss strawberries and sugar in a large bowl to coat and set aside, tossing occasionally, until berries release their juices (15-20 minutes), then mash with a fork.
  • 03
  • Working in batches, grind ice in a food processor until very finely crushed and fluffy.
  • 04
  • Divide mashed strawberries among 6 chilled glasses, pile crushed ice on top, drizzle with tres leches mixture, scatter with ground cinnamon to taste, and serve with a spoon and a straw.
