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
15 blueberries
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).


  1. My grandchildren like the blue ones which are raspberry apparently. Like you I think they are nothing more than frozen chemicals.

    1. Yes, Jamie mentioned that one. He said he was climbing the wall after having one. His poor mum!

  2. I could imagine drinking that out on the decking with some cheese and crackers!

    1. Yes, me too. It's very much a hot afternoon, out in the garden with a snack and a good book kind of drink. Very refreshing.
