Summer is almost here and it’s time to celebrate with yummy fruit slushies! I’ve been making slushies for the kiddos every night with their dinner. They are absolutely delish, refreshing, and healthy. Zoey gets to choose what goes into her slushies and she always opt for some sort of berry. Here are two slushy recipes to try.
Basically, you are going to need fruits and/or vegetables, a fruit liquid for the base, and a handful of ice to make it slush. I always try to freeze as much fruits as possible beforehand so I don’t have to use as much ice. We always have apple juice at home but feel free to substitute with your juice of choice. Passion fruit juice would be divine! Put everything into a blender and blend well. I have the Vitamix and it’s magical.
Lately, we’ve been enjoying our slushies with the coolest, most stylish, and eco-friendly glass straws by Glass Dharma. Don’t worry, you can be cool too! Don’t miss out on a chance to snatch a set of 4 smoothie glass straws and a cleaning brush. Please see giveaway entry guidelines at the end of post.
To make it fun and colorful, I layered the two slushies. Ain’t they pretty?!
On a side note, for the fruit + mint slushy, I actually added a few mint leaves into the blender. I love the taste of that burst of mint flavor. You can see the tidbits of mint leaves in the slush. It’s all about eating or in this case, slurping with the eyes!
And if you are wondering how the beet and strawberry combo taste? It’s YUM! Just be very careful because them beets can stain like crazy.
