Add the strawberries, lemon juice, maple syrup, mint and ice to blender.
Add a 1/2 cup of water and blend initially in bursts, then longer 15-20 second cycles. Depending on the blender, you may need to move it around. Add water a few tbsp at a time and keep blending until you get a consistency that you prefer and all the ingredients are blended well.
Scoop into serving glasses or bowls. Garnish with mint leaves and serve immediately.
Instead of frozen strawberries, you can use fresh strawberries instead. If you do so, I suggest upping the amount of ice, or skipping the water. Just start with adding no water and then add some only if the fresh strawberries don't render enough liquid to make it a slushie.
Strawberries, both fresh and frozen will always vary in sweetness, so just give your slushie a taste and add additional maple syrup if necessary.
feel free to play around out. Rosemary, thyme, and mint go really well with strawberries. Just add it in lieu of maple syrup.
This recipe can easily be doubled.
Feel free to add in some frozen peaches, frozen mango of frozen pineapple.
