Strawberry Lime Slush

As Spring arrives and the days get warmer, I know more than one of you who will enjoy the occasional slushy or two from a fast food joint. While I have not taken the time to find out what some of these establishments put into their icy beverages, I have a hunch that they are laden with sugar and may contain artificial sweeteners and/or colors. Why not, save your dollars and enjoy this healthier version of a strawberry lime slush.
In a blender, place:
10 frozen strawberries
juice of 1 lime
1/2  cup rice milk
1/2 tsp. stevia

serves: 1

I let my strawbwerries soften a bit before blending. If you can't be bothered to wait, you may need to add a bit of water to help the blending along. I found this drink to be refreshing, light and sweet. Enjoy! 


  1. Aimee,

    That sounds really good! I usually combine orange and strawberry but your lime version is very appealing. I may have to give this a try tomorrow.

    thanks for sharing,

  2. Hello Aimee, Hello
    Alicia and I are friends!
    This is very delicious sounding, I love lime and strawberry together!!! I have fresh strawberries at the moment, but I bet it will be great, I will just freeze for about 20 minutes or so!!! Good post!

  3. Thank you girls! Alicia, I will have to try the orange as well;)
    Vivacious, I will put you in my blogroll! I, too and from the midwest...Kansas City.

  4. This recipe sounds so cool and refreshing! There is nothing better than a fresh fruit drink on a hot day. I usually add bananas to mine, just to give them a creamy texture. Yum!
