Ingredients

Ingredients

  • Frozen Strawberries – make sure they are frozen and not fresh fruit.
  • Sweetener –  use your preferred sweetener.
  • Carbonated Water – sparkling water, club soda, or make your own using a SodaStream. You can also use any flavor of sparkling water such as lemon-lime, orange, or berry.

🍓 Strawberry Ingredient Note

If you find yourself without frozen strawberries, there’s a simple solution. Remove the tops from fresh strawberries and place them in a zip lock bag for 6 Hours in the Freezer to create your own homemade frozen strawberries.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use fresh strawberries instead of frozen ones?

No, you can't use fresh strawberries as a substitute because doing so would require adding ice, which can dilute the flavors.

Is carbonated water necessary, or can I use regular water?

Yes, carbonated water is necessary as it provides the fizzy texture that enhances the slushie's appeal.

Can I make this slushie without a blender?

No, a blender is a must to create the desired texture and consistency for this slushie.

Storage Tips

To store any leftover slushie, place it in the fridge. While refrigeration will slow down the melting process, it’s important to note that it won’t completely prevent the slushie from melting. Slushies are best enjoyed immediately for the freshest taste and texture.
