Place strawberries, maple and a squeeze of citrus in a blender. Blend until smooth. If need be, add a splash of water to the bender to get it going. Taste, adding more maple or citrus to taste if you like. You want a nice balance between sweet and tart. The sweeter and riper the strawberries are the less maple or honey you will need.
Add the ice cubes a little at a time, blending until incorporated, adding more ice to the blender (if you like) to get it really thick and icy. If you’ve got a good blender, let it go just a bit it longer, it will take on a slightly creamy look. It should be thick enough to mound on a spoon, and not be runny.
Spoon into one large glass or two smaller glasses. Serve with a spoon. 🙂
