Spring is here and we have soo many strawberries available in the market! I will write about the benefits of strawberries later, but lets talk about the wonderful things we can do with them. Our versatile strawberry, for cake toppings, desserts, icecream, jams, and then those milkshakes…ooh la la… and what about cocktails and mocktails? I bought a lot of strawberries and was wondering what do i do with them? I then said why dont i make something nice to drink? So..this is my concoction..a mocktail and a cocktail!!
2 cups of soft strawberries, washed , pat dry and put in the freezer for about 30-60 minutes till frozen
2-3 tablespoons of sugar syrup (just combine 2-3 tablespoons of water with 2 tablespoons of sugar and mix well)
a few drops of lime juice
4 tablespoons of orange juice ( i used clementine juice)
Put the frozen strawberries with all the ingredients in the blender ( i used my magic bullet) and blend till well blended. If you like your slush a little more watered down you can add some sparkling water or 7-Up!! Serve in a fancy glass and drink immediately!
FOR THE COCKTAIL:
Use the same recipe as above and just add a shot of vodka and a shot of cointreau…Blend it all and sip….oooh!!!
NITU DIDI TIP: The sugar syrup is optional.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF STRAWBERRIES:
Apart from Vitamin C, strawberries are a good source of antixoidants that help you fight cancer, and insure you a healthy immune system. I cup of strawberries contains less than 50 calories so its good for your calorie control diet. Do make your mocktail without the sugar syrup !!
