My Faithful Assistant has been nagging me to go to Dunkin’ Donuts to get him a Coolatta. I am not opposed to the occasional overpriced treat for my kids. But we do have this wonderful and powerful blender and it seems a a shame to buy something when you can make it at home without all the extra junk. So here is a great summer treat. For an adult version, substitute some of the water for vodka, rum or tequila.
2 cups frozen fruit
1 1/2 cups water
1/4 cup sugar
1. Put the ingredients in your blender in the order listed.
2. Blend on low, slowly increasing to high until it reaches the desired consistency.
We used a mix of strawberries, peaches, mango and pineapple for a little tropical flavor. I used plain old sugar but you could use Agave or artificial sweetener too.
We are off to the first official swim meet of the season. Don’t you love the tie dye towel in the background? I’m so happy that my Faithful Assistant has something slightly healthy to bring with him.
Enjoy your day!
