Mocktail Monday #2: Blueberry Cherry Strawberry Slushie
I do. I remember drinking them on hot summer days when I lived in Philadelphia and watching my entire mouth turn that telltale red or blue. I remember getting the biggest one possible when it seemed too ridiculously humid to eat and calling it a meal as the brain freeze ascended. I loved slurpees, but- as I am not actually a huge sweet person- I am prettttttty sure it had more to do with the cold and the slushiness than the drink itself. Now that I am an adult who gives a shit about what goes into my body, I wouldn’t drink a Slurpee, which up until now was kind of a tremendous drag, because damn. It gets hot everywhere sometimes. THIS BABE DEMANDS REFRESHMENT.
So, this is my version of a sweet and slushy treat. It is simple, has ZERO added sugar, tastes AWESOME, and will totally refresh you without turning any part of your body artificial red or blue. I don’t really drink alcohol, but I’m going to be honest- I have it on good authority that you could throw a shot of rum in there, and it’d be bangin’. (Okay, I googled “what kind of alcohol is in a daiquiri?”- That’s good authority right?)
|Blueberry Cherry Strawberry Slushie|| |
- 1 bottle blueberry cherry KeVita
- 4 strawberries
- 4 blackberries
- 1-3 cups ice (depending on how icy you like it)
- Pour KeVita slowly into a high speed blender, being careful not to make it over-fizz
- Add strawberries, blackberries, and ice into a high speed blender and whiz on high until the drink has a slushy look. Add ice one cup at a time, to get the right ratios for your tastes!
Now I’m going to take an opportunity to be that guy again:
Do you wish you were eating a little more simply, or a little more healthfully? Do you want to make dietary changes to get animal products, gluten, refined sugar, and processed foods out of your diet, even if just for two weeks? Do you want more energy from cleaner-burning foods? Do you like a little extra accountability?
