Strawberry Slushie

  • Servings: 4

If you can’t get hold of fresh strawberries, it’s absolutely fine to buy them frozen. The great thing about frozen fruit is that it’s been picked at its best, at the right time and is also cheaper and far more convenient – it will keep happily in your freezer for months on end, so any time you fancy a slushie, you can have one!
