Strawberry Slush

I ate this a TON when I got my wisdom teeth out! This make-ahead slush is really refreshing on hot summer days. Pour lemon-lime soda over scoops of the strawberry blend, and you’ll have a fast fruity treat that’s so thick you’ll need to eat it with a spoon.

  • 4 cups fresh strawberries
  • 2 cups fat-free vanilla ice cream, softened
  • 1 package (.3 ounces) sugar-free strawberry gelatin
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 liters diet lemon-lime soda, chilled
  • Additional fresh strawberries, optional

In a large bowl, mash strawberries; add ice cream. In a small bowl, dissolve gelatin in water; stir in lemon juice. Add to the strawberry mixture; mix well. Pour into a 1-1/2-qt. freezer container; cover and freeze overnight.

Remove from the freezer 15 minutes before serving. Spoon into glasses; add soda. Garnish with strawberries if desired. Yield: 10 servings.
