Blackberry & Apple Slushies

Blackberry and apple slushies yum!


I've been whizzing up a lot of quick recipes in my Froothie Optimum 9400.

Green Smoothie Soup and Rich Tomato Soup for dinner, Lime Curd to fill a Victoria sponge cake. I whizzed up beans for Spicy 3 Bean Sausage Rolls and I made some delicious Pink Pineapple Smoothies to drink.


Slushies


Since we've had some beautiful hot days, my mind turns to recipes to help cool us down.

I took inspiration from Stuart (Cakeyboi) who made some lush Fresh Orange Slushies, I decided to have a go myself.

I decided to make some blackberry slushies as blackberries are in season at the moment here in Scotland and I added some apple as they go together so well.

These jewel coloured slushies really hit the spot.

There are some tiny seeds in the slushies, but I quite like that. If you don't, whizz the blackberries first and strain through muslin to remove the teeny seeds. I also added some agave nectar as the blackberries were quite tart, but that is also optional.

Let's hope the good weather continues.
