I highly recommend the Vitamix as it makes the best smoothies. The one I have is old, but it is still going strong. It is quite the investment to get one, but it is one investment that won’t disappoint.

It will be the last blender you ever had to buy. Amazon has several of them on sale right now for a great price.

Now if a Vitamix isn’t in your budget, then I recommend a Waring professional blender. They are going to get the job done and you can get them for as low as $50. Now they are not as great as a Vitamix, but they are the next best for a much more reasonable cost.

How do you make a slushie in a blender?

You will be so surprised how easy is to make. I wonder why I waited so long to make them. My kids have a blast picking out different flavors and literally it’s so cheap to make these.

Grab a bag of ice, your favorite fruit flavors and you are all set to start making your favorite slushies.

Ingredients you need:

  • 2 cups of cold water
  • 1 kool-aid packet of your favorite flavors
  • ½ cup of sugar
  • 4 cups of ice cubes

We love adding ice cream to this recipe! When we add ice cream my kids call it the slushie shake. It makes it so creamy and the texture is so amazing.

The kids will think you are the best! All Summer long you will be making delicious frozen treats.

Celebrate with fun straws!

I’ve gotten a few questions on where you can buy the pretty straws and even fun lids to the mason jars. I actually bought them on Amazon:

Now Chevron Straws are a bit more expensive, but definitely worth it if you are throwing a fun party. They add such a cute little touch to the glasses!

Have a slushie party! 

Making these homemade slushies has been a great way to beat the heat this summer. The consistency and taste are just like the ones I was spending several dollars each on! Now I can make enough for my huge family for just a fraction of the cost.

The kids take turns choosing the flavors we make. Surprisingly, the favorite flavor has been blue raspberry. Sometimes if they have friends over, we will make a couple of different kinds. Their friends love it, and keep coming back for more.

These are all delicious to beat the heat! What is your favorite way to make a slushie?

    I must say this is an awesome article. My famiky and I have been drinking kool aid slushies for many years but we do it differently. We make a gallon of regular kool aid then we just throw it in the freezer. It never dawned on me honestly yo use a blender for an instant slushie. By using your reciepe here then we will be cutting back on a lot of sugar as well. So thank you for sharing this.
