Hello friends! How is your Eid weekend going? On Eid weekend the excitement (and exhaustion!) is palpable around these parts! Eid Day One went off wonderfully and now we are celebrating with a family dinner tonight and a lunch at our place tomorrow. For which I have almost decided the menu. The uncertainty doesn't feel quite so good. You know what does thought? Being able to eat and drink whenever we want! With summer temps kicking in a cool drink is always appreciated and this Strawberry Lime Slushie with Stevia is the perfect beverage for those hot days.
Stevia is a plant based sweetener and when Greeniche, a Canadian company specializing in natural health related supplements sent me some of their Stevia sachets I knew they'd be great for a slushie. I grew up in Karachi and to this day one of my favourite drinks of all time was the practically neon green lemon lime slushie at Mr Burger. While I will still shamelessly indulge in it when I am there I cannot bring myself to even try and recreate it at home! Instead I turned to something I have started to appreciate more in the recent past - nature's bounty.
Strawberries are in season here and so hard to resist when I make a trip to the store. The smell alone sold me on using them to make a slushie with some strawberries, generous lime juice for extra twang, a handful of icecubes and a little stevia. This comes together in a cinch and makes about two glasses. I like it a little less sweet, but you can go ahead and add more stevia as you go along! Hoping everyone has a happy refreshing Eid!
- 1 cup strawberries, tops trimmed
- ¼ - ⅓ cup lime juice (lemon works too)
- 8-10 ice cubes
- 3-4 stevia sachets
Blitz together the strawberries, lime juice, ice cubes and 3 sachets of stevia.
Taste and add more if needed
