Good morning everyone. As promised in my earlier post, I have one more drink recipe for you today. This is a part of our monthly Foodie Mamas Roundup. For those who are here for the first time, here’s a little bit about Foodie Mamas. We are a group of Mamas and Food Bloggers who come together every month with a chosen food ingredient. We work around that particular ingredient and make recipes that are kids and family friendly. 

This month Emily from The Best Of This Life picked ‘Cherries’ as the main ingredient. From my side, I made this quick Cherry Ice Slush. My daughter loves all kinds of slushes, especially now when it’s getting really hot. Instead of using something store bought, I always prefer to give her something homemade.

In the following recipe, I have cooked cherries along with some vanilla extract and maraschino cherry juice and made it into a syrup. When it was time to serve, I just crushed some ice in the food processor and topped it up with the cherry syrup. That’s it. How simple yet delicious is that. The cherry syrup can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days. But I bet you will run out of it on the very day you prepare.

For the grown up version of this drink, you can freeze some cherry and vanilla liquor in ice cubes tray. Then when its time to serve, just run these cubes from the food processor and top it up with the cherry syrup. Just imagine yourself with this refreshing drink on a hot summer weekend.

Well, enough said, let’s go through the recipe.
