(I came looking for this recipe and found I posted it on my main blog, not here, so here is a reprint from over there, from last June)
Cold blender drinks and smoothies are some of my very favorite things. The boys and I usually make a smoothie a day for snacks, and when it’s hot we love getting out the VitaMix again for ice cream, smoothies, whatever. Yum, yum, yum. I figured out the best ever strawberry-lemonade slush last week. The one at Carraba’s is close to perfect – a tad too sweet for me. This one is cold, sweet, a tad tart, slushy – my mouth is watering right now.
1 pound fresh strawberries, halved
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup water
3/4 cup lemon juice
2 cups ice cubes
