Additional Notes: 

*You can use some lemon juice to add extra zing if you don't have citric acid. Add about a tablespoon for this recipe.

**This can be made with fresh strawberries. Place a cup of fresh strawberries in the blender, along with 1/4 cup cold water, sweetener, and citric acid (or lemon juice). Blend until smooth; add ice cubes one at a time while blending until slushie consistency is reached. Enjoy!

Sometimes I add a banana, which makes it creamier. If adding a banana, break the banana in half and add at the very beginning, before adding strawberries. :)

Preparation Time: 

5 minutes

Tammy's Review: 

This is Joshua's homemade Strawberry Slushie recipe that he created. He laughed when I asked him for his "recipe". (He is the one who makes them for us!)

Even though it's simple, I wouldn't have known how to make such a perfect one without his instruction. :) This is the perfect way to cool off in the summer!

If you want to make this less of a "dessert" item, just use less sweetener (or use a no-calorie sweetener like stevia!). :)


Very tasty! A caution to turn off the blender between adding berries--I blasted my kitchen with sugary mess! :-P I added a little more water since it seemed pretty thick, but I guess it depends on how many berries you use. I used a pint.




So good on this hot day ! We all loved it!


Joshua makes these strawberry slushies for us as a quick summer dessert, and I must say they're better than what I expected after hearing what he was using to make them. Yay for husbands in the kitchen -- at least when it comes to slushies! ;) This is a great recipe. Thanks, Joshua!


This recipe was really, really good! Refreshing, and I love how I can control the sweetener (store bought slushies are always way too sweet for me). I used lemon juice instead of citric acid (because I didn't have any) as suggested. I never knew it was so simple to make a (healthier) slushie at home!
