Strawberry-Mango Frappés

Or I suppose you could call them slushies; I don't mind.

This is the time of year when I start remembering that the freezer is full of frozen fruit from last summer and it's time to do something with it. It tends to go into slushies, frappés, smoothies, aguas frescas, etc, etc, as I am not really inclined to make baked desserts on a weekly basis, and thawed out fruit by itself is, let's face it, kinda mushy. These also make such a welcome change from heavy winter food. I want to start thinking Spring, and these definitely do the trick. You may note that these are pretty much the same thing as the Blueberry-Pear Frappés I made last month; just different fruits.

2 to 3 servings
10 minutes prep time

Strawberry Mango Frappe1 350 ml (12 fl. oz.) tin of mango nectar
2-3 cups frozen strawberries
1/2 to 3/4 cup of water

Put the mango nectar and strawberries in a good sturdy blender or food process, and blend until smooth. Blend in a sufficient quantity of water to give it that smooth slushy texture. Pour into glasses and put your feet up... pretend you are on a beach somewhere...

Those look nice and refreshing. I just realized that I have a lot of frozen berries in my freezer form last year. I had better start using them to make room for more. :)

Oh, lovely! And your photo is great! Sigh, I unfortunately jumped on the trying-to-eat-local-more-often bandwagon in autumn of last year... just in time to hit the winter blues :( I've never longed for spring so much before! Hopefully, this time next year, I'll be super happy making these smoothies with summer frozen berries. :)
