Step 1

Fill a blender with frozen strawberries, and then add enough liquid to just cover the fruit. Use about 1 cup of strawberries per person.

Step 2

Pulse the blender on high until all of the strawberries have pureed into the liquid. The smoothie should be thick and icy, but if it isn't, blend in a few more frozen strawberries or a handful of ice cubes.

Step 3

Taste the slushie mix and add a sweetener -- sugar, honey or artificial sweetener -- to adjust the flavor according to your preferences. Pulse the blender to mix in the sweetener. Taste the slushuie again and repeat the process as needed.

Step 4

Remove the lid from your blender. For a fancier presentation, dip the rim of each glass into the slushie mix, a bit of the liquid you used or honey, and then dip it into granulated sugar. Rimming the glass is optional.

Step 5

Pour the slushie into glasses. Garnish each glass with a fresh strawberry on the rim, or place it in the slushie if you'd like to dress up the presentation further.
