Raspberry Lemonade Slushy

Raspberry Lemonade Slushy | The perfect refreshing #beverage for the last few hot days of summer |

My 6 year old is notoriously bad about eating fruits. I think the only way I can sneak any into his diet is if I make banana bread or he eats yogurt. Another way that I try and get him to get his fruit is with drinks. He's not a big fan of fruit juices (and neither is his tummy) and if it's a really thick yogurty smoothie, he usually drinks a little and then leaves it on the kitchen counter. Both of my kids are really into slushies though. I have to blame/thank the infomercials they saw on tv for the Slushy Magic cup thing.

I have to say that I really loved this too. Sometimes you really just don't want a thick dairy smoothie, but something more simple and refreshing. This was the perfect amount of sweet and sour - and it was gone in no time at all. Also as a side-note...I still love my Ninja [blender/food processor extraordinaire].
What you need:
  • Simply Lemonade
  • Frozen Red Raspberries
  • Ice
  • Sugar, if needed
  1. Blend up some ice with enough lemonade to make it slushy.
  2. Add raspberries and blend some more. 
  3. Add lemonade to reach desired thickness and sugar for sweetness, if needed/desired.
