Hot? How About An Icy Cold Mixed Fruit Slush
Here’s a simple, cool & sweet recipe that will refresh you during the warm and sunny days ahead. Well for some of us in the South, those days are NOW. Like today, it was a sweltering 87 degrees. I swear I saw melted ants on the sidewalk. Ok, not the most appetizing thought for a food post but you get what I’m saying.
This is super quick to make and requires ZERO ice.
If you have little ones, there’s no need to flag down the Ice Cream Man …Mama is the Slushie Queen!
What You’ll Need
- 1/2 Bag of your favorite Frozen Fruit – My mixed fruit blend is frozen Strawberries, Mangoes, Pineapples and Peaches
- 2 – 3 Cups of Apple Juice
- Fresh Strawberries or Mint Leaves for Garnish
- Blender or Small Magic Bullet type Blender
2 Mins Prep
16 oz. of Slush or 2 – 8 oz. glasses. If you need more, then make 2 batches or use a large blender and double the recipe
Now, this is all gonna depend on whether you prefer your slush to be a little firm or juicy enough to drink through a straw. I like to eat my slush with a spoon so I keep my liquid to a minimum. If you like it with a little more liquid, then add more juice. 3 Cups should be all you need.
Pour in your juice into the bottom of the blender. Keep adding your fruit until you’ve reached 1/2 bag OR you near the rim. Blend for about a minute. If you need to add more fruit, do so. Unplug your blender and use a spoon to push down any solid pieces toward the blades if needed. Re-plug and blend again for about another minute until smooth.
Your consistency should look like this, evenly blended and smooth.
Pour or spoon it into your favorite glass, Garnish and you’re good to go. I opted to use a few small mason jars for ours. Enjoy!
