The Strawberry Donut Sundae (Oh YES We Did!) & More Smucker’s Ice Cream Truck Recipes

strawberry donut sundae

Strawberry shortcake is and always has been one of my favourite desserts of all time. The texture, flavour and the sweetness is just perfection! There’s something about the combination of creaminess, sweet tart berries and soft cake that just make me oh so happy!

Smucker’s® recently put together some “Ice Cream Truck Favorites” – recipes inspired by ice cream truck classics – using the Smucker’s Ice Cream Toppings. I’m sure you’ve seen them in your local supermarket as they are quite popular! The toppings come in chocolate, caramel, strawberry and their famous Smucker’s® Magic Shell® Chocolate Flavoured Topping.

Smucker’s invited me to recreate one of their delicious concoctions and of course I obliged, opting for the Jelly Donut Ice Cream Bowl found on their website (you must check out the other recipes, they are divine!) as I found that the recipe could be easily taken as a fun twist on the traditional strawberry shortcake.

I modified the recipe slightly as I couldn’t find a waffle bowl and my children aren’t fans of icing sugar. You won’t believe how easy it is to make!

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Makes: 1 sundae


¼ cup (50 mL) chopped strawberries
¼ cup (50 mL) Smucker’s® Sundae SyrupTM Strawberry Flavoured Syrup
¼ cup (50 mL) chopped glazed donuts
½ cup (125 mL) strawberry ice cream or frozen yogurt (I used vanilla ice cream)
Whipped cream (optional)
Icing sugar (optional)
Additional strawberries for garnish


Scoop the ice cream into a glass dish and top with chopped strawberries.
