This easy summer strawberry slushie recipe is a twofer. When strawberries come into season in the summertime, their extraordinary flavor puts imported winter supermarket berries to shame. This recipe shows you how to prep...


Ingredients

  • 4 cups strawberries, washed well (see Ann’s Tips)
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, or to taste

Directions

  1. How to freeze the strawberries: Hull the washed strawberries and pat dry. Arrange them in a single layer on a small cookie sheet. Pop the sheet into the freezer until they are frozen solid, about 90 minutes. At this point, you can roll them off the tray to be either used immediately, or bagged in resealable bags and stored in your freezer for future use.
  2. Blend the frozen strawberries in a blender with the lemon juice and sugar until smooth. Drink immediately.

Chef Tips

This is even easier to make with commercially frozen strawberries – buy organic if you do!
