    Each year we visit a local farm that allows you to pick-your own-berries. The kids and I collect kilos of strawberries, and also some blackberries and loganberries.  Generally I freeze some of the berries to be used in baking during the year. I also make up batches of jam, and sorbet.  We also have a berry feast the day we collect them, enjoying the fresh sweet flavour of the little sun ripen jewels.


    This year I have been using the Blitz2Go Blender to whip up milkshakes and ice-blocks for the kids. The ice-blocks are simply frozen versions of whatever ingredients I use in the blender, poured into molds and left to set in the freezer.   The boys enjoy these as treat on a hot day, after school or dinner. 

    My Strawberry Lime Frosty recipe came about after a hot morning picking berries. It is cool and very refreshing. I enjoy the slight fizz added by the light sparkling water as a change to milk based drinks.


    Strawberry Lime Frosty

    Makes: 600ml


    • 150 grams fresh strawberries- washed and hulled
    • 1 kaffir lime leaf shredded finely (optional)
    • ½ lime juiced plus a slice to serve
    • 200 ml lightly sparkling mineral water
    • 9 ice cubes


    1. Add the ingredients to a Blitz2Go Blender and then secure with the base and pulse until ingredients are well combined.
    2. If all of the ice does not fit into the container in one go pulse and then add the remaining cubes and pulse again.
    3. Pour to serve and add a slice of lime.
