Week: 1, Day : 1
Theme: Summer Coolers
Summers here in Ahmadabad are killing, you actually need to vacate your frig and make place…make place for yourself ! The temperature has soared up to 48 degrees and standing next to a gas stove is like burning yourself, I just hate to get in the kitchen. Salads, summer coolers are the best at this time. So for this week I have a few summer coolers for you.
For the first day it is a strawberry slush. I had some strawberry pulp stored in my deep freeze , so it was done in a jiffy. Normally I used to add ice and pulp to the blender, but this time since I had the ice shaving machine, I shaved some ice, added sugar and the pulp, gave it a quick pulse, poured into a glass with some fresh basil leaves. It is such a soothing and refreshing drink and you will love it for sure. Do we need a recipe, no actually not but let me tell you how I made…
Strawberry Slush


1 cup shaved ice
1/4 cup chilled water
1 tbsp sugar, powdered
2 tbsp strawberry preserve
Basil leaves


Except for basil leaves, put the rest of ingredients in a blender and give it a quick pulse.
Pour into a glass and garnish with basil leaves.

  1. I read about the temperature in Ahmadabad in the paper and it was so shocking! Here too summer has been very bad.I like idea of making room in the fridge to sit inside :). This slush is so apt for this climate and I will be making this soon.
