If you’re looking for a refreshing and healthy snack that’s perfect for summer, look no further! You need this frozen strawberry lemonade slushie in your life. It’s made with only 3 ingredients and is refined sugar free.
The recipe for this slushie is super simple, and really more of a method. Because you’re using so few ingredients, you’ll need to adjust the quantity depending on the taste of your ingredients and what you like. For example, if you have super sweet strawberries, maybe you won’t need as much maple syrup. Want a slushie that’ll pucker your lips? Add more lemon. Use the measurements below as a guide, and follow your tastebuds!
This recipe serves one and is best made in a small blender (I have a Ninja), but you can easily increase the quantity and use a bigger blender! All you’ll need is 2 cups of chopped, frozen strawberries, half a lemon, and some maple syrup. Add the strawberries, the juice from the lemon, and a few teaspoons of maple syrup. Add in a bit of water to get it blending, but not too much, because we want to keep it thick and slushie. Blend until it's a smooth, thick mixture that’s not too thick to drink through a straw.
Maybe you’re thinking, “but, Fiona, isn’t that just a smoothie?”. Yeah, I guess you could call it a smoothie if you want, but I like to call it a slushie because strawberries have a pretty high water content. Either way, it’s delicious.
