Let the strawberry-fest continue! You know, my kids can devour strawberries by the handfuls in the summertime. But, man, do they love it when I manage to save some and make a refreshing strawberry lemonade slush!
It’s like summer in a glass. The perfect quencher after a hard day at work (or play).
The recipe below is very flexible so you can use it as a guideline and play around to get your desired slush consistency. My kids tend to freak out if there is too much ice (can I say, brain freeze?), so we tend to go a little less than listed below. But you can lean in either direction.
And here’s your solution to never waste strawberries again! If you feel like your strawberries are getting past their prime and need to get used, just throw them in the freezer and whip this out a few days later. It’s definitely a handy way to use them up! However, you can, of course, use fresh strawberries as well.
And, as a matter of fact, you can easily swap out strawberries with another berry. Can I hear a raspberry or blackberry? Or just go straight lemon slush. Why not? Life’s too short not to drink your fair share of slush.
Here’s to warm and sunny weather!
