Malibu Slush

Malibu Slush

Slushies always take me back to my childhood years.  I think I looked forward to an extra-large slushy and a large popcorn more than I did the movie, when we went to the cinema. Of course, I then did not have something like this awesome Malibu Slush, which would have been a problem as I am talking about going to the movies when I was still in primary school.

For some reason I lost interest in going to the cinemas after primary school, and have only been there, at most, a dozen times over the years. But I still look forward to the slush puppies - bubblegum flavor to be exact !

This Malibu Slush is most definitely not for kids, adults only, and also one of my new favorites, especially when I use freshly juiced fruit juice. A couple of years ago, there was no such thing as a juicer, only the old-fashioned orange juice extracting contraption, which I might add, electric or manual, one never got all the juice from the fruit.

With all these new gadgets, just about anything is possible. I dump my fruits, some with skin/peel and stone - the whole fruit - into the juicer and voila ! fresh juice in seconds and all the peel and other junk spit out the other side.

My favorite fruit juice to use when making a Malibu Slush is lychee, with pear and apple shortly on it's heels. I do however peel the lychees before I drop them into the juicer.

I have mentioned in a previous post that I always have freshly juiced, juice frozen in my freezer. I keep the frozen cubes in a sealed, freezer safe plastic container and use as required. At this moment I think I have around 10 containers filled with frozen cubes, all different fruits, especially the ones which are out of season now, as we are in the middle of Winter.

Below I am giving you the super easy recipe for these slushies made with lychee juice, but you can use the same method with your favorite juice that goes well with Malibu - which is just about any juice if you ask me !


Malibu Slush

1 Serving

INGREDIENTS:

1 1/4 cup Lychee Juice, frozen juice cubes
2 TB Malibu Rum

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Blitz the frozen Lychee and the Malibu together in a blender until the slush stage - usually less than a minute.
2.) Pour into a short glass and serve immediately.

Now, remember to juice and freeze enough fresh fruit juice and you will never run out of ice-cold slushies during Summer - alcoholic or not.
