A quick ice-cold homemade strawberry drink!
1/2 cup hot water (140 degrees or hotter)
1-2 tablespoons sugar, xylitol, or sweetener of your choice
a pinch of citric acid*
1. Place hot water in blender, along with sugar and citric acid.
2. Turn on blender and add frozen strawberries one at a time until a slushie consistency is reached. Pour into a glass and enjoy!
*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. :)
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!). :)
