Louisiana Strawberry Ice

Louisiana strawberries are the sweetest you can get! We’ve found all kinds of uses for them, but this simple recipe for Strawberry Ice brings us back to sweet afternoons spent enjoying Italian ice.  You can substitute other seasonal fruit for strawberries if you have a hankering for ice at a time when strawberries are not available, just be sure to adjust the amount of sugar to taste.

  • 5 cups fresh or frozen unsweetened strawberries, thawed
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • fresh mint (optional)

Place the strawberries in a food processor (or blender); cover and process until smooth. In a saucepan, bring sugar and water to a boil. Cook and stir until sugar is dissolved; cool slightly. Add to blender. Add lemon juice; cover and process until combined.  Pour mixture into your ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer’s directions.  If you don’t have a ice cream maker, pour into an appropriately sized container and freeze for 4 to 6 hours.  Before serving, whip briefly in the blender or food processor. Garnish with fresh mint, if desired, and serve. Originally posted here.

Who could resist this cold treat on a hot New Orleans day? And with fresh Louisiana strawberries no less!

Favorites for April!

For the Girls!

We are just in love with adorable summer dress with features some amazing hand done details, such as the hand embroidery at the neck and hem. The over-the-top cute pineapple print was also hand block printed! It also doesn’t hurt to mention that it is fair-trade and benefits a co-op of women.

Another great fair-trade item, the Symphony skirt which also features hand done block printing. The colors also scream summer to me!

For the Guys!

The Hunter tee is one of my favorites so far! I just love the how the grey works so well with the blues of the rad deer print. It’s also got a sexy v-neck!

Next, we are lovin’ how unique the dye job on this polo is. The Elliot polo would be great with some slim back jeans and a fedora for a romantic date night outfit.

Hope you love our picks for April! And we also hope to see you around the shop sometime!

love, lauren + thiri
