Vanilla Basil Watermelon Slushie

Slofoodgroup Team July 22, 2020

Fresh Watermelon, Vanilla, and Basil Give The Classic Slushie A Serious Upgrade!

Summer is here and what a better way to celebrate than with a fresh slushie? Cold watermelon, a kick from basil and mint, and vanilla seeds add glamour to a classic slushie. We think this is wonderful on its own but have been known to use it as a cocktail base and add a bit of alcohol. It goes great with vodka, with tequila, white rum, or even with gin for a cheeky gin fizz.

It really doesn't get much easier than this single-step recipe. You just grab those delicious summer ingredients, toss them in a blender, pour it into a cup, sip it down, and try to avoid the brain-freeze! 

Cheers!

These spiced Latkes with wild garlic dip are a delicious variation on the German potato pancake. Spiced with cloves and nutmeg, they play well with the smooth, earthy elements of the potatoes. Though typically served with applesauce, we love them with this creamy greek yogurt and wild garlic dip.
