    This was very refreshing! I put it into a freezer storage bag and massaged it ever so often.One second it was a nice slush the next it was gone!!!!!!!!! I mixed som with vanilla ice cream in a blender my son enjoyed that!

    Really great, so light and refreshing! My raspberries were very tart so I did add just a little more sugar. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    Great recipe! We used blueberries & cherries in stead of raspberries but the result was delicious! Followed another suggestion re: squishing the contents in a freezer bag & it worked great! Super easy & if you start w/ frozen fruit... it only takes 3 - 4 hours for complete freezing! Thanks for the inspiration!


Very busy nanny/au pair, working for a very rich and snooty family, in a very large home, in a very snooty village. Just in case my employer comes here, please don't ask where I am from, or I'll be sacked like the last nanny was. ;-) I take care of 4 gorgeous, and darling kids. 3 girls and a boy. The boy is the youngest (and my favorite). They are great children, very, very active. (Hyper) I love to cook. I guess that's a given, why else would I be here. Part of my job is also to prepare meals for the family. The more they like my food, the longer I get to stay. (just a little joke) On my day off, I usually go out to the cinema or some dance clubs with the other au pairs in this town. That's about it I think.
