I have been craving fresh slushies/smoothies this whole summer. I just want fun, fruity, cold, and light summery drinks. This strawberry lime slushie reminds me of the one I used to get at Sonic....minus the high fructose corn syrup and dyes and other terrible ingredients! I just love how the strawberry taste blends with the lime. It almost makes it's own new flavor. This is a simple, fun recipe! You can also put this slushie in popsicle molds and make fun popsicles for the kids!
Strawberries are a low glycemic fruit which makes it a perfect fruit to eat on a regular basis without affecting blood sugar. Also, lime is cleansing and detoxifying, so while you are enjoying your delicious beverage,you are actually healing and cleansing your body....sounds like a win win to me!
Here's the recipe:
1 Cup of Organic Frozen Strawberries
2 Cups of Ice (if you can get ice that is made with filtered water, that is ideal)
2 Cups of Filtered Water
1 Lime Juiced
2 Dropperfuls of liquid Stevia (we like the Sweet Leaf Brand) Also, it's not quite "dropperfuls" because the dropper only gets about 1/4 of the way full.
2 Tbsp of Raw Creamed Honey. (doesn't have to be creamed. As long as it's a LIGHT tasting honey)
1-2 Scoops of Grass Fed Collagen (OPTIONAL) We like THIS BRAND
1. Add all ingredients to high speed blender
3. Enjoy! 4. It's as easy as that!
Below are some fun pics of the process!
Feel free to add or subtract ingredients based on your taste! If you like yours SUPER slushie-like, just add more ice :) For a really smooth slushie, you can add the mixture to the ice cream maker for a little bit.
