Watermelon Kiwi Juice

By |2014-05-08T01:11:10+00:00March 6th, 2014|Categories: Drinks|Tags: |0 Comments

Today the boys helped me make some juice for afternoon tea. Very very easy!!! We blitzed three peeled kiwi fruits on speed 5 for 20 secs. To that we added 800g of chopped watermelon. Blitz on speed 9 for 30 secs to chop up the seeds. This was a bit too "pulpy" for the boys so I ended up straining their serve through a nut bag for them. The rest was frozen into icy poles for another day.

Mango Slushies

I recently bought a drink mix that tasted delicious but wasn't the most cost effective option and full of things I've never heard of before. Goodness me it was delicious though!    I thought I'd create something similar. It doesn't taste exactly the same but is yummy and refreshing after a hot day. This has become an almost daily after school and lunchbox treat.    A little vodka added to it wouldn't go astray too for the adults!    This [...]
