Frozen strawberry slushy

  • 1 cup crushed ice
  • 5 fresh strawberries
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Stevia to taste

Blend the ice, strawberries, and vanilla in the blender until a slush forms. Taste, and add stevia to desired sweetness. Pour into a cup and enjoy!

Strawberries out of season? No worries instead use 4 frozen strawberries, and 1 cup of water.

Additional alternatives are to use flavored liquid stevia to give yourself some variety and avoid boredom and cravings. Try replacing your vanilla and stevia with Chocolate flavored stevia for a super tasty treat!

This could also be done with your daily allotment of lemon juice for frozen lemonade! YUM
