Freezing Time 4 hours
Total Time 25 minutes


  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 5 cups fresh raspberries
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 cups water


  • In a 2-quart saucepan, bring 2 cups water and sugar to a boil, stirring to dissolve. Reduce heat to low and simmer, without stirring, to make a simple syrup, for 5 minutes.
  • Pour the syrup into a medium bowl, stir in vanilla extract, and transfer to the freezer to let chill for 15 minutes.
  • Purée the raspberries with the syrup and lemon juice in a blender or food processor until smooth. Scrape the purée through a fine sieve into a bowl; discard the seeds. 
  • Pour into a shallow non-stick cake pan or pyrex casserole dish.
  • Freeze until solid.
  • Remove from freezer and break the mixture up into pieces. In small batches, put into the blender and liquidize until smooth.
  • Pour into a suitable container (a loaf pan works best) and freeze again for approximately 2 hours or until solid.
  • Serve and enjoy!


Tip: Add rum or tequila for a fun frozen adult drink
