Lately, as the weather permits, L and I have been, on occasion, making little treks to the near by SevenEleven for a icy treat. Instant summer memories are brought back every time I treat my son and I to one. And I can't help but like the instant smiles that comes with it, even though I could do with out the coloring and high fructose corn syrup.
Actually, those two ingredients weigh heavy on my mind as we sip and slurp away at the frozen goodness. Not to mention the constant asking to go out and get one. Like.every.single.day. So I made my own version, with just two ingredients.
Strawberry Lemonade (or any lemonade you choose) 2 cups
Blend until smooth.
I rescued some strawberries that were almost to the point of no return by freezing them. They were so full of juice and colored deep red that I knew I had to do something quick or else in the trash they would go. Turns out that they were perfect for this recipe. I didn't have to add any sugar, and the end product had such a great froth to it. Slurp!
L loved it and it hit the spot. Making it with any fruit you like would be easy and if you need a little sugar I think honey would do the trick.
Happy Summer Slushies everyone!
