DIRECTIONS

  • Add first three ingredients to a blender and let thaw slightly.
  • Add a tsp or so of honey (or to your taste), if desired.
  • Blend, blend, blend until slushy, stopping occasionally to scrape down sides with spatula. Use the spatula to mash the mostly frozen fruits together, too. Don't worry if it's not totally blended together, it looks really pretty marbled red and orange. Add more water if needed, but try to keep it to a minimum so the flavor doesn't get watered down and the slushy stays fairly thick. I didn't need more than 1/2 cup of water. You can probably replace the water with fruit juice of your choice, also. I wanted to keep the flavors to the strawberry and mandarin orange, so I didn't use fruit juice. This may be eaten with a spoon or a straw, as it thaws. If desired, refreeeze before serving, as the blending action will thaw the fruit a bit more.
  • This makes one large serving, or two small ones.
