1 cup frozen strawberries, thawed
1 cup (8 ounces) apple juice
- Combine ingredients in blender and process until smooth.
- Serve, or freeze for 1 to 2 hours to make a slushy.
- Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.
- If you don’t have a blender, mash strawberries with a fork. Add juice and beat with an egg beater until fairly smooth.
For a make-ahead summer treat, prepare Strawberry Swirl and freeze in a zip-lock bag. When ready to serve, partially thaw in the bag, then scoop into glasses or cups. Two cups of frozen whole strawberries, still a little icy rather than thawed, and two cups apple juice can be processed in a homestyle blender. The mixture fits in a 1 quart bag. This really works! I served 250 at a school carnival last week!
Delicious and simple, kids love it! It actually reminds me of the strawberries topping served at restaurants...I bet it would be good warmed up as a replacement for maple syrup on pancakes or waffles!
