I'm thinking that maybe a slushy would be refreshing. I decide to make a sangria slushie with peaches while the grill is heating up.
I've been buying peaches all summer. They have been really sweet so I've been making ice cream and slushies and even used them as one of the toppings on my cheesecake.
As I'm chopping the peach I'm thinking the peach flavor is going to be so good with the grilled chicken. I think I'm going to save some of the peaches to make a salsa for the chicken. Yum!, but that's another post for the salsa.
Making slushies are easy to make and they are flexible. You can add any kind of water (flavored, sparkling) or fruit juices along with any fruits you prefer:
Many slushie recipes require that you blend all the ingredients and pour the 'juice' into ice cube trays to freeze in advance. This process doesn't work for me -- when a craving is spur of the moment the 'make ahead and freeze' method doesn't work.peaches, nectarines, plums, apricots pineapple, oranges, mango, cherries or any variety of berries
Here is a simple recipe that you can make whenever you want as long as you have ice cubes and any fresh fruit and/or juice you like already in the fridge. The ingredients should be cold from the fridge as opposed to room temperature.
If you don't want to add wine, that's o.k. Just add additional fruit juice and adjust the sugar to the level you prefer.
White Sangria Peach Slushie
- 1 cup chopped peach
- 1/2 cup peach juice (or apple juice)
- 3 TBLS. agave nectar (or use powdered sugar to taste)
- 2/3 cups white wine (any dry white wine you like)
- 3 cups ice cubes
- Add all the ingredients except for the sugar into the blender. Only add 1 tablespoon of sugar and blend until the ice has been sufficiently crushed into a slushie.
- Taste for desired level of sweetness. If you need to add more sugar add 1 teaspoon at a time so as to not make it over-sweet.
- Pour into a large glass and garnish with lemon or orange slices and a slice of the fruit you are using.
