Recipe: strawberry, blueberry and rhubarb slushie
Do you remember slush puppies? Are they still available, I'm not sure. All those colourings and synthetic additions!
I saw Jamie making a slushie on the telly this morning using raspberries. He suggested using elderflower cordial but I love strawberry and rhubarb together so I used some of my rhubarb cordial. It would be gorgeous with added lemonmade or sparkling wine but I had neither so it was tap water!
Ingredients for two glasses
10 ice cubes (the kind you can buy in bags)
8 strawberries, tops cut off
rhubarb cordial (or elderflower)
mint (optional but very good)
water for diluting (or lemonade, sparkling white, gin, vodka, etc)
You also need a good food processor/blender
Put the cubes, fruit, cordial and mint leaves in the blender
Zizz until the ice has reduced to a slush (it is very noisy)
Add some water and stir it in.
Serve with a sprig of mint for decoration. Absolutely delicious and I will make it when my own strawberries are in. You can use any soft fruit really - peaches, pineapple, raspberries, whatever you fancy. It'd also be great with gin or vodka or whatever.
As Jamie says so often - so, so good (especially on a warm May afternoon).
