Wellness – Good food – Dad’s Strawberry Juice

My dad was good in the kitchen.
He had his dishes that not any one of us could recreate like he made them. I am still trying to get his Carbonara recipe down or even to be somewhat similar to his. His bolognese was great, too. He tried to teach me a few times how to make it. I never came close. How I wish I had at least written down the recipe, step by step. One thing I created into my own and kept very close to how he used to make it, was his sopa. Our version of Sopa a la Minuta. We’re Peruvian, so the Peruvian recipe is quite different. But, one thing I think I did do of his as well as he, was his strawberry juice, probably because it is so simple to make.

From him, to me, to you!
Fresh strawberries. Clean off the stems and rinse. Fill the blender 3/4 of the way.
About 1/4 cup of orange juice.
1/4 a cup of white sugar. Blend in 1/2 and taste. If it’s not sweet enough, add the remainder.
Once all blended, add 6-8 ice cubes. Chop then crush.
It’s perfect for a picky kid or just refreshing for a sunny day.
Also, it is great frozen. Just add to ice cube trays with toothpicks or ice cream trays.
Enjoy!
