Tomato Strawberry Freeze

This vibrant red sherbet blends strawberries and plum tomatoes for a surprisingly sweet treat.


  • 1 cup (180 g) chopped plum tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) milk
  • 1/3 cup (67 g) sugar or other sweetener
  • 1 pound (454 g) frozen unsweetened strawberries


  1. Place all ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure lid.
  2. Select Variable 1.
  3. Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High.
  4. Use the tamper to press ingredients into the blades.
  5. In about 30-60 seconds, the sound of the motor will change and four mounds should form.
  6. Stop machine. Do not over mix or melting will occur. Serve immediately.

If mixture has the consistency of a milkshake, firm it up by slowly adding a cup of frozen ice cubes. Process until smooth. For a non-dairy alternative, substitute soy milk for skim milk.

This recipe has been written for the C-Series machines with Variable Speed control and Standard 64-ounce container. If you are using a different Vitamix machine or container size, you may need to make adjustments to the Variable Speed, processing time, and/or ingredient quantities.
