These would be the perfect addition to a BBQ tonight. Hope you all are having a great holiday! We've been busy working on the kitchen and things are coming together so well. I can't wait to show you the finished hutch tomorrow, too!
Happy Memorial Day, all!
Strawberry Limeade Slushies
2 cups whole strawberries, washed and stems removed, about ½ quart
3 cups ice
⅓ cup lime juice
½ cup sugar
½ to 1 cup water
Throw everything in the blender and let 'er rip! Let the blender run for a minute or so to make sure all the ice is chopped up. If things are too thick and not processing, add a little more water. After the mixture is smooth, taste it. I love mine tart, and will normally start with ¼ cup of sugar and work my way up, depending on how sweet the strawberries were and my mood. If you need a little more sugar, add a tablespoon or two and reprocess to combine. Do this until the slushie is to your liking. Serve right away.
If I make more than we are in the mood to drink, I throw the extras in the kids' popsicle molds and freeze to make strawberry limeade popsicles. They are amazing. Frozen or fresh strawberries can be used.
