Healthy Strawberry-Lime Slushie

admin November 24, 2014

Make a simple strawberry-lime slushie that tastes like a virgin strawberry daiquiri — great for holiday treats! Plus, how to make a daiquiri for adults.

When I was a little kid, my family always broke out the strawberry daiquiris around the holidays.  Some years they were virgin, and I was allowed to have one.  Some years they weren’t…and I might have gotten a small sip.  These were always made with a frozen mix, though, which included corn syrup and all kinds of other junk.

Eventually, I figured out that these yummy drinks were really just a combination of strawberry and lime.  Of course!

I set out to re-create the drink as a healthy “slushie” that the whole family could enjoy.  And they do — my kids start cheering and jumping when they find out I have made slushie!

If you were so inclined, you could replace half to 3/4 of the water with rum, obviously for adults only!  (3/4 c. rum should be about 1 oz. per serving.)  I prefer the virgin version personally…just as yummy, no need to limit how much I have!

I’m Kate, mama to 5 and wife to Ben.  I love meeting new people and hearing their stories.  I’m also a big fan of “fancy” drinks (anything but plain water counts as ‘fancy’ in my world!) and I can’t stop myself from DIY-ing everything.  I sure hope you’ll stick around so I can get to know you better!
