Lime and basil slushie
- Wash the basil, pat dry and remove the leaves from the stalks. Put into the blender jug and, with the measuring beaker in place, chop for 10 seconds/speed setting 8. Add the syrup and ice cubes and, with the measuring beaker in place, blend for 30 seconds/speed setting 10. Serve immediately.
If desired, the herbs can be left out, or substituted for others, and the lime syrup replaced by another flavour. To achieve a fruitier flavour, use 50 g frozen fruit to replace 50 g ice cubes.
If you like your slushie to have a coarser consistency, alter the speed setting, not the time setting. After 30 seconds all the pieces of ice will be the same size.
