How to make a slushie
Summer is here! The kids and I are having a blast enjoying the sun and having fun together as a family. We are trying to “take it easy” this year a bit and do some fun stuff at home. Today I want to show you how to make a slushie with Kool Aid mix. These Kool-aid slushes are so fun for Summer. Perfect way to cool down on a hot summer day.
We have tried several different flavors and the kids just loved them all. If I had to pick I would say that orange was my favorite. 🙂
Now before we get started, Make sure you have a good blender.
You definitely need a good blender to make these Kool Aid Slushies!
I have a Vitamix and I love it. It is old and is still going on 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. Amazon has several Waring blenders on sale right now.
Either way, I know you will be able to enjoy fun Kool-aid slushies with one of these blenders. I also use this blender to make this Easy Fruit Smoothie Recipe. It’s so good. As you can see, I use our blender a lot! Such a good investment!
