Day 146 - Grenadine Strawberry Slush

May is Strawberry season, and there's always a box of organic berries stashed away in the refrigerator. The best way to keep them for up to a week is to rinse them thoroughly in warm water with about 1/2  a cup of vinegar added. Then just dry them and pop them back into the box they came in.
This was a spontaneous slush that I cobbled together out of  the blue this afternoon. The fact that I had to make a second batch for the kids got me clicking a quick photograph to post.

You need: (makes 1 serving)

4 - 5 washed and hulled strawberries
2 tablespoons grenadine syrup
1/2 teaspoon orange zest (Lemon zest would work as well)
1/2 - 2/3 cups ice cubes

Combine the berries, grenadine, zest and the ice cubes in a blender jar and blend until the ice is completely crushed. Pour out into a glass and stick a straw in it before sipping!
