Rainbow Italian Ice on the Brooklyn Bridge


Today I walked across the Brooklyn Bridge. One of the many things I have always wanted to do. The view was absolutely breathtaking but I would say to watch out for the bikers because they ride fast and they’re very aggressive. They have their own side of the pathway but they still manage to be rude to the pedestrians. Regardless! It’s a definite must. If you live in the area and haven’t gone, you really should. It’s great exercise and an even better view!

Here’s an easy Italian Ice recipe:
3 cups halved strawberries or chopped pineapple
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Blend the fruit, sugar, honey, and lemon juice with 2 cups ice in a food processor or blender until chunky.
Add another 1 cup ice and blend until completely smooth.
Pour mixture into shallow baking dish and freeze for 30 minutes.
Scrape ice with fork until slushy, then freeze until firm (approx. 2 more hours).
Scoop into paper cups to serve.
