Slushies Recipe

If you grew up drinking Slush Puppies (a.k.a. Slushies) then this is one recipe you’ll definitely want to try.

A fan on Facebook asked me if I could come up with a slushie recipe to help her get through the hot Canadian summer. Not being one to ever turn down a culinary challenge, I gave it a shot.

And this is now officially my new favorite summer treat! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE how these turned out.

I used a Hibiscus Cooler juice blend that you can get at most health food stores (at least here in my area). But you could pretty much do any flavor you like as long as the juice is 100% juice with no added sugar.

And it’s so easy to make!

    Oh my gosh that looks delicious! I’m definitely going to make that this weekend for the kiddos!

      Catherine – They will LOVE it! My son sure does!

  3. Quite a few years ago one of my kids got an Icee Maker for Christmas. Of course it came with its own package of colored, flavored sugar that you’re supposed to use. We discovered that you can use practically any juice with it. It comes in really handy in the hot summer months. One of our favorites is just throwing some cut up melon in the blender to liquefy it and then run it through the icee maker.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Aaron – What a great idea! You could do that with just about any juicy fruit I would imagine. I’ll give that a try!

    this looks super yummy and refreshing! I can’t wait to have these in the summer….i wonder if it would be OD if i made the juice fresh made in a juicer and then did this…

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Michelle – You could certainly try it! I can’t see why it wouldn’t work unless there is a ton of pulp. That would change the consistency a bit. But if you strain that, it should be yummy!

    Great idea!

    So, is “from concentrate” really clean? And, agave…what’s your take on that? I’ve switched over to all raw honey, rapadura, and stevia for natural sweeteners.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      52WBF – I buy organic concentrate. I don’t see why there would be anything bad in an organic version. I could be wrong, but it just makes logical sense to me.

      As for agave, there is a lot of debate out there. Half of which, is simply propaganda and people screaming things from the rooftops that they know nothing about. But for those few resources out there who are reputable and actually do know what they are talking about…. I’ve learned that it pays to investigate the brand/company you buy. Some companies do manufacture the heck out of their agave. Some do not. It’s best to contact the company to find out exactly what they do to their product.

    Ahhh exactly what i have been lookin for!! I used blueberrys and orange for mine then layered them. it was gorgeous. Thankyou… QUESTION: Any thoughts on mqking bubblegum flavour?? How would that be done?

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Interesting question. I’d have to research that a bit. I’m not sure there is anything natural that would taste like bubblegum. But I’ll look into it.
