Cooling and refreshing, this healthy, sugar free, two ingredient blueberry slushy is a snap to make. Simply blend up frozen blueberries with fresh squeezed orange juice for an icy, cooling, delicious summer treat, full healthy antioxidants – and best of all no added sugar! This can be made with any frozen berry and really any fresh fruit juice…. so feel free to experiment and play around.
Blueberries are in season for a few short weeks, during the heat of summer in our area. Seek out flavorful low bush varieties at local farmers markets – you’ll recognize them by their smaller size. They pack a punch of flavor and are more closely related to wild blueberries than conventional high bush varieties that you’ll find at the grocery stores.
Hope you enjoy!
