If there’s anything that Alea asks for on almost a daily basis (besides requesting a snack every 5.7 seconds of course) it’s if we can stop and get an icee or a slushy on our way home from work and daycare. It’s at almost the same location, too. Right as we’re coming to a stop at the stoplight to make a right hand turn, Alea’s little voice chimes in as I turn down the radio to hear her a little better. “Mommy, can we please get an icee on our way home?” We’ve had to reserve these special treats for Friday’s, but now I can say yes a little more often since I learned how to whip one of these delicious Orange Slushies up!
1. 2 cups of SunnyD juice
2. 2 cups of lemonade
3. 3 cups of ice
Blend thoroughly until ice is crushed and serve chilled with an orange slice for a garnish if you have one on hand. Bonus if you have any fun straws laying around! Even better if it’s a swirly straw!
This is the perfect drink for a warm summer evening and makes the perfect after dinner treat. Just ask Alea! Girlfriend was slurping down her slushy in no time and boy was she surprised that we could actually make icees ourselves at home.
It’s so darn easy, too. I almost feel silly that I never thought of doing this before! We’re officially stocked up on SunnyD from a recent trip to Sams Club so we can continue making these yummy slushies throughout the summer months!
What’s your favorite flavor of icee or slushy?
