For a healthy alternative to a shaved ice or snow cone, try this Lemon Cherry Slush out of my cookbook, “Whole Food Goodness.” It’s cold and refreshing on a hot summer day.

Lemon Cherry Slush

2 cups frozen cherries

10 small pitted dates

1 peeled lemon

2 cups cold water with ice

Blend all ingredients in a high-powered blender until slushy.
