Sometimes simple hits the spot.
This summer, Anchorage broke records for consecutive days with temperatures above 70. degrees. All that gorgeous heat stretched our imaginations for more refreshing warm weather treats (after all the Popsicles, sorbets and ice creams that we had already eaten). We have moved well past that now to the cold rains of August, but for those of you who still have hot sunny days ahead:
This recipe comes from my son who first called the results Slushies and then renamed it Slurpies once he got a straw into the action.
How to do it:
Throw a tray full of ice cubes in your food processor and pulse until they are reduced so those ice-y granules that he calls snow.
Use your favorite ice cream scoop to transfer some "snow" to a juice glass.
Pour some juice over the top.
We like cherry juice. Or to really pucker up try pure cranberry. Something with bold color makes it more fun.
