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 ! Now that 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. 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.
Dump the 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. We keep the frozen cubes in a sealed, freezer safe plastic container and use as required.
Have frozen fruit juice on hand all year long !
At this moment I think I have around 10 containers filled with frozen cubes. All different fruits, especially the fruits 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 !
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.
