500 g strawberries
1 sprig of fresh mint
1 teaspoon golden caster suger
Give this super simple and really delicious slushie a try - without all the added sugar and junk of a shop-bought fizzy drink, it's a treat without all the nasties.
1. Pick the top leafy bits off the strawberries.
2. Pick the mint leaves, discarding the stalk.
3. Add the strawberries and mint leaves to a liquidiser along with 100g of ice cubes.
4. On a chopping board, cut the lemon in half.
5. Squeeze half the juice into the liquidiser, using your fingers to catch any pips.
6. Add enough cold water to just cover the strawberries (roughly 350ml), pop the lid on and whiz until smooth.
7. Fill a large jug halfway up with ice cubes.
8. Taste the slushie and sweeten with a little sugar, if needed.
9. Pour into the jug and stir with a wooden spoon.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
