How’s your summer going, guys?
Is it hot over there?
Here in Delaware is very hot, and we’re trying to cool ourselves the best we can.
The aircon is almost always on, and we struggle when we go outside.
I’m using this time to work on the house with John, and redecorate, sort, re-organize, and much more. My kitchen is quite different nowadays.
I’m slowly getting back to my routine, and I’m back with something nice.
Meet Raspberry Slushy – a homemade treat that takes 5 minutes to set up and 30 minutes to cool, and it’s ready to serve.
I started this day with an idea to make a sorbet, but ended with a slushy eventually (It’s a funny story) because I wanted to make it as healthy and refreshing as possible.
That means no added sugar, or preservatives & sweeteners.
I relied on the natural taste of raspberries and a bit of honey to balance out the lemon’s sourness.
And the combination worked great! 🙂
Then, it was time for the freezer/ fridge to do its magic.
Look at those images – the sweaty details on the glass are fantastic.
As I previously said, this recipe is ridiculously easy. It requires three ingredients:
- Lemon juice
When preparing this beautiful refreshment, just have one thing in mind – 4/2/1.
What does 4/2/1 stand for?
That’s the rule of ingredient allocation: 4 units of raspberries, two units of lemon juice, and one unit of honey.
You can make the units as large as you’d like!
For example, I used 1.1lb (500gr) of raspberries, 0.55lb (250gr) of lemon juice, and 0.22lb (100gr) of honey.
Here’s how the process goes:
- Put raspberries & lemon juice in your blender
- Blend well until consistent
- Add honey
- Blend well
- Pour into a container
- Put into the freezer for 30 minutes
Here’s A Thing
I’ve had to put my sorbet into the fridge instead of the freezer because the freezer was overstuffed with meat John bought the other day for the big barbecue he’s hosting a day after tomorrow.
I had no choice, and when I opened the fridge to serve the sorbet, it was more of a slushy instead of a sorbet. I realized it won’t have the consistency required to be a proper sorbet, so I pronounced it “Barbara’s Slushy”. 😉
Here’s my sorbet slushy on the counter table before it will disappear in 30 secs by a hungry beast – my son
So, that’s why I said it didn’t turn out just as planned, but I have a feeling it went quite well.
That’s the creativity you can allow yourself in the kitchen – just be creative!
Until our next meet 🙂
