WITHOUT A BLENDER

All you need is ice, salt, juice, and a couple of Ziploc bags

Ingredients

  • 6 cups ice cubes (or enough to fill about half a large Ziplock bag)
  • 1-2 tablespoons Kosher salt or table salt
  • 1 cup of your favourite juice Some soda water and a couple drops of food colouring (if you choose)

Method

  1. Place ice cubes and salt in an large Ziploc bag
  2. Place juice, soda water and food colouring in a sandwich-sized Ziploc bag, press out all the air and seal tightly. Make sure it’s sealed properly – otherwise salt will get in and it won’t taste good!
  3. Place the small bag of juice INSIDE the larger bag of ice and salt and seal it up
  4. The larger bag will be holding the ice, salt, and the separate baggie of juice
  5. Shake the bag for about 3-5 minutes or until the juice gets slushy. If your hands get cold, wrap a tea towel around the bag or use gloves and continue shaking
  6. Pour slushy into a cup and serve immediately

Ingredients:

Handful strawberries

Handful raspberries

Handful blueberries

One lemon, sliced

Method:

Gently wash the raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries.

Slice up the strawberries.

Drop the fruit into a glass bottle or jug a few pieces at a time, alternating between fruits so that they are well mixed.

Fill the bottle to the top with cold water.

Once the water has all been drunk, you can continue to fill and refill the fruit-filled jug all day long.

Keep it in the fridge to keep it chilled.
