  • 2 cups strawberries
  • 3⁄4 cup orange juice
  • 1⁄2 cup skim milk
  • 1⁄4 cup sugar, divided

  • Hull strawberries and place in food processor; sprinkle with 2 tablespoons sugar and let stand for 20 minutes, until sugar dissolves.
  • Add orange juice, milk, and honey to strawberries and process until smooth. Pour into a 9-inch baking pan, cover, and freeze until firm, about 3 hours.
  • In a medium bowl, beat egg whites with cream of tartar until foamy. Gradually add remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, beating until stiff peaks form.
