Serves 4


  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice (juice of 4–5 lemons)
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, cleaned and sliced, divided
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries, divided
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 cups club soda, chilled

Cooking Instructions

In saucepan, combine water and sugar. Cook over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Pour into 13x9x2-inch glass baking dish. Add lemon juice; stir.

Purée 1/2 cup strawberries and 1/2 cup raspberries in food processor or blender; add to lemon mixture, mix well. Stir in milk,* cover with plastic wrap; freeze 15 minutes. Remove from freezer and scrape ice crystals with spoon. Return to freezer for 15 minutes; remove and scrape ice crystals. Continue this process, scraping every 15 minutes until mixture reaches desired thickness, about 1 hour.

Divide remaining berries among 4 glasses. Add 1/2 cup soda, top with slushy mixture. Stir slightly; serve immediately.

*Don’t be alarmed if milk curdles slightly.
