Frozen Lime Slushie
Happy Father’s Day to all you dads out there!!!
I imagine, for some, today will be celebrated with grilling and barbecue fare so I thought I’d share this wonderful drink which would pair well with any outdoor, summer meal. It’s super refreshing and quite tasty. I was debating on calling it a Margarita. With some tequila, it would probably be VERY close in taste. But since it’s non-alcoholic AND healthy, I decided to simply call it a slushie.
Have you ever had frozen grapes? I freeze them all the time in the summer. They make wonderful snacks! And now… I found out they’re great in frozen drinks, too.
- 3 cups frozen green grapes (Make sure they’re organic! See notes.)
- 1 large organic lime, peeled
- zest of the same lime
- 1 cup coconut water
- handful of ice
- Toss everything into a high-powered blender and let ‘er rip!
Helyn’s Notes: Grapes are one of the most heavily sprayed fruits. It’s very important to consume only organic to avoid harmful insecticides. Organic grapes are finally in season and available in most health food stores. When I find them, I buy a bunch and freeze them!
Serves 2. Enjoy!
~ For my dad… 1922-2011
He’s the man over there, still standing tall
A simple man, too humble for pride
With a head full of logic
And a heart as gold as the sky is wide
A spirit so quiet
It whispers only to my soul
Yet so strong
It fills my universe
With symphonies of love.
