Fruit Slushy

We are very health-conscious individuals. We’ve always been our whole lives, and now we help each other make good health choices since our marriage.

One of Ed’s health regimens includes drinking a morning fruit Slushy. It’s a yummy and healthy way to start each day, getting rich nutrients into the body to break the overnight fast and energize for the day ahead.

We thought it would be nice for our readers to share Ed’s usual fruit Slushy recipe in case you wanted to try it and consider making it part of your morning routine for a healthier you.


Ed’s Fruit Slushy
Ingredients:

  • Orange Juice
  • Banana
  • Frozen peaches
  • Frozen strawberries
  • Frozen blueberries
  • Optional: powdered soy protein mix with vitamins and minerals

In a blender (or Magic Bullet) combine 2 cups orange juice, half a banana (share, eat or save the other half in the refrigerator for the following day), 3 slices of frozen peaches, 2-3 frozen strawberries, and half a cup of blueberries in blender and blend until smooth with no chunks.   Drink. (Yum!)

For a boost of protein for rebuilding after physically intensive workouts, Ed likes to put a scoop or two of soy protein powder with vitamins. You can get this at Trader Joe or other heath food stores.

You can also try adding fresh fruit for an even tastier Slushy. But the frozen fruit works well and stays fresh longer in the freezer with less spoilage and waste.

Try other flavors of juices (like grape, cranberry, pineapple, or berry) or ingredients like pineapple, raspberry, mango, yogurt, honey or any number of other fruits or vegetables to suit your taste and texture preference.

What combinations are your favorites? Feel free to share yours with us and other readers in the Comments.
