Slushy

Pear Slushy
Yummo!!  And just the thing for a hot and sticky afternoon.  It ticks all the boxes:  fruit, water, cold.  Simple.  The only thing is,  it requires a bit of forethought.  But,  if you haven't got any frozen pear and syrup, then straight from the pantry is fine.  Just not as 'frozen'.

Ingredients:

  • 2 whole canned pears with syrup (ie 4 pear-halves), previously frozen
  • 1 tray of ice-cubes
  • 1 golden or red delicious* apple, washed and cut into quarters (optional)
Method:
  • Put frozen pears, broken up a bit, ice-cubes and apple into TMX
  • Pulverise/smash/puree on Speed 6 increasing to Speed 10
  • You may need the spatula to ensure all the ice gets into the blades, while it's going.
  • Serve as a sorbet if a bit on the solid side or as a slushy, if more liquid.  (Serves 4 kids, with a bit left over for me.)
Verdict:  My kids will happily have a couple of these a day on a hot weekend...  and I will happily give it to them.

Tweeks:  Leave out the apple if you're not having moderate Salicylates. Add more pear or syrup as you'd like.

  1. Hi there! I almost died from an anaphylactic shock 30 months back. The cause of it was salicylates. And for 30 months now, I have not eaten any 'outside' food. I have been cooking and baking and making all of my food from scratch. Bread, cookies, cake, even dumpling skins and pastries. Anything which has additives, flavourings, colourings, preservatives, chemicals, MSG will trigger another attack.

    Here is my story and some of the home-made dishes I prepared:

  3. Hi! Thank you for your reply. I have joined the fedup.com.au forum and yes I have been reading up a lot. Much to digest and am figuring out how to adapt into my already 'limited' lifestyle. Thank you once again. And I hope to learn from your blog too!
