    I bought a box of peaches from a high school fundraiser so decided to try this slush. So refreshing! Yum!

    The peach-basil combo is fantastic! I love the slushy texture and added a little more lemon juice for personal preferences.

    I was skeptical of the basil-peach flavor combo but we LOVED it. The mixture was a little sweet for our liking so I added a few more peaches and ice to it. Next time, we'll just reduce the sugar - we like things tangy! Great recipe!
