Lemon Berry Slush

Now that it’s warming up, this has become a frequent post-lunch afternoon drink. Sometimes, I’ll have it for breakfast, especially on the weekends. I’m not too much of a big breakfast type of gal (brunch is a different story) so a glass of this and maybe some nuts on the side and I’m good to go.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of crushed ice
  • 1/2 – 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1/2 cup of blueberries
  • slice of lemon, rind and all
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup of water
  • Stevia, optional

Preparation:

In a blender, (I always use my Ninja) add the crushed ice, strawberries, blueberries, and lemon slice – trust me on using the whole slice, it gives it just the right amount of zest. I promise it’s not a full on pucker as the fruit stabilizes the lemon, but provides a nice zing. Blend together, add enough water to make it a slush. If needed, add a packet of Stevia.
