Strawberry Limeade Slushie Recipe

Strawberry Limeade Slushie Recipe

Who hasn’t gone to their local fast food joint and purchased one of those delectable high calorie slushies?  I know I have and my children particularly enjoy them.  However, those “fruit” slushes are loaded with sugar, artificial food coloring, calories and high fructose corn syrup (HCFS).  Do YOU REALLY  want your child bouncing off the car walls or wasting your daily caloric allotment on that drink?  I know I don’t, so yesterday I came up with my healthier version of a Strawberry Limeade as part of my children’s after school snack.

Strawberry Limeade Slushie

Slice Enough Limes to make at least 6 ounces of juice when squeezed

Pour the Juice into your favorite blender- Mine is the Blendtec

Add 4-6 ounces water

Toss in a HANDFUL of either fresh or frozen strawberries.  Preferably organic.  I use frozen since I can reduce the amount of ice I need and because strawberries are not grown locally year round.

Add Stevia or Turbinado Sugar to taste

Fill blender with Ice

Enjoy the puckering taste of limes and strawberries and hear the delighted squeals!
