"Shake, Squish, Squeeze, Until It Freeze"

Updated: Jun 20, 2020


Take me back to the good ol’ days when I was a kid and I’d hear that nostalgic musical melody coming down the street. You’d run in the house and scrape up some spare change or ask your mom for a $1.50 or so and run back out hoping you didn’t miss it, the ice cream truck that is. I knew exactly what I wanted to order every time, a “strawberry shortcake please”. And I’d devour it all up and go back to playing, hide n’ go seek, double dutch, ding dong ditch it, or whatever else I played with my friends. This recipe brings me right back to those days check out the full recipe below.





- 1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream

- 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

- 2 Tablespoons Sugar

- 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Rock Salt or Ice Cream Salt

- 1/2 Gallon Ziplock bag of Salt

- 1 Gallon Ziplock Bag

- 2 Sandwich Bags

  1. Pour milk, vanilla, and sugar into one sandwich bag, push the air out & zip it up and double it up.

  2. Shake the ingredients around to mix completely

  3. Add ice to the gallon bag until it is halfway full, you may have to add some ice part way through once it begins to melt. Add the rock salt

  4. Place the sandwich bag with the wet ingredients in the gallon Ziplock and zip it shut

  5. Shake it like crazy and squish and squeeze until it freezes - approx. 10mins. (pro tip, use oven mitts cause it will get cold).

  6. Put in the freezer while making the strawberry topping (Don't let it get too frozen)




- 1 Cup Dehydrated Strawberries

- 10 Oreo Cookies w/o the cream center

- Popsicle Mold

- Funnel or 1 Big Boba Tea Straw

- 10 Large Sweet Strawberries

- Optional (1/2 Cup Sugar)

  1. Place Dehydrated Strawberries and Oreos in a food processor or bullet or a plain ol' bag and crush them until blended well (This is your popsicle crunch base) Place to the side in a bowl

  2. (Optional) Soak strawberries for an hour in a bowl with sugar

  3. Blend strawberries to a puree

  4. Use Vanilla Ice Cream while still soft and pour 3/4 of the way full into popsicle molds

  5. Use a funnel or straw to add the strawberry puree to the center

  6. Freeze for about 2 hrs or until hard enough to stay molded but not stuck to mold

  7. remove from mold by running warm or hot water and shimmy out of mold

  8. Dust with you Strawberry Oreo topping by pouring over the pop with a spoon
