4.     Combine the sugar mix with strawberry puree and blend together.Pour mixture into a nonstick metal baking pan.  Freeze for about 20 minutes or until the mixture is icy around the edges of the pan.

5.       Use a fork to scrape icy portions into the middle of the pan

6.       Repeat steps 4 &5 until mixture is completely frozen. Scrape mixture into a flaky texture using a fork into a bowl. Garnish with extra berries and serve right away.
