THUNDER BAY – Looking for a refreshing beverage to cool down on a hot summer night? Here is a treat from our friends at Foodland Ontario. It combines fresh tasty Ontario Peaches.

Slushies are no longer just for kids. A perfect combination of a chilled drink and dessert, this super easy slushy is summertime crave-worthy! For a non-alcoholic version, use juice.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Freezing Time: 1 hour
Serves 4 (Makes 6 cups/1.5 L)

4 to 5 Ontario Peaches or Nectarines, pitted (about 1-1/4 lb/625 g)
1/2 cup (125 mL) orange juice
2 tbsp (25 mL) Ontario Honey
2 tbsp (25 mL) fresh lime juice
1 tbsp (15 mL) finely grated gingerroot
8 regular size ice cubes
Garnish: Ontario Peach Wedges
Fresh Ontario Mint

In blender, purée peaches with orange juice, honey, lime juice and ginger until smooth. Pour into shallow metal pan. Freeze until just barely frozen (a little softer than solid), about 1 hour.

Place ice cubes in blender and set to ice setting; crush until ice is in small pieces. Scrape in frozen peach mixture and blend until slushy consistency. If too thick, add a bit more liquid. It may be necessary to do this in two batches.

Pour into 4 glasses. Garnish with peach wedges and mint.
