slurpee.jpgIn light of the new "Slurpee Lite" at 7-Eleven aka chemical cocktail - even if it has only 20 calories (please save yourself and avoid this sacrificial artificial load on your body)....I'm coming up with a healthier Slurpee knock-off recipe.
I recently asked my Facebook fans what flavor they wanted for a healthier “Slurpee” copycat recipe – strawberry lime won (fizzy berry came in second), so here they are -  equally as refreshing, delicious and fun, without all the artificial color, sweeteners and chemicals!

Strawberry Lime Slushy
Makes 4 servings –
1/4 cup pomegranate or cranberry juice
juice of two limes (about 1/3 cup fresh lime juice)
2 tablespoons sugar, ideally raw
4 ½ cups ice cubes
5 cups fresh strawberries, washed and caps removed

Fill blender or food processor with pomegranate and lime juices, first, then sugar, ice, and strawberries. Blend or puree until thick and smooth, stopping to mix contents and push ice to bottom, if needed.
Serve in a tall glass with a straw.
