  • 1½ cups strawberry puree
  • 1 lb floury potatoes, peeled

Pour the strawberry puree into a silicone ice cube tray with at least 6 molds and freeze for at least 2 hours. Boil the potatoes for 25 minutes, add them to a blender along with the eggs, heavy cream, and melted butter, and blend until a smooth batter forms.
