I was on vacation last week, and tried an Apple Cider Slushy for the first time. It. Was. Delicious! And slightly more adult than the classic neon coloured slushies that one finds at the corner store. But there’s a time and a place for everything, including the classic Orange Crush Slushy, so that’s what I’m going to show you how to make this week!
Making a slushy is almost embarrassingly easy. You basically just need a very watery drink, and an ice-cream maker. I use my Kitchen-Aid Mixer with an Ice Cream attachment, and I love it as I can easily make delicious ice creams like Gluten-Free Chunks O’ Brownie Ice Cream, or even healthier desserts like my Strawberry Fro-Yo. But I think any electric ice cream maker would work, paired with a delicious watery drink.
ORANGE CRUSH SLUSHY
This childhood-inspired summertime treat is just the thing on a hot and steamy day. And even better, it takes about two minutes to make!
- 1 can Orange Crush pop
Pour 1 can of pop into the ice cream maker, and run it for 2-5 minutes (depending on how frozen you like your slushy).
Pour into a chilled glass, and...enjoy!
I mention this in the post, but you can easily substitute the Orange Crush for another flavour of pop, or even another water-based drink. The possibilities are as wide as your imagination!
The possibilities for different flavours of slushies are endless! Do you like the Grape or Watermelon-flavoured slushies from your childhood? Buy a package of Kool-Aid in the flavour you like, add in the appropriate amount of sugar and water as directed on the package, and toss it in the ice cream maker!
If you’re watching your weight, you could even try a strongly-flavoured version of Crystal Light. Yes, it’s not the healthiest of summertime treats, but…everything in moderation, right? Sometimes when it’s hot and humid outside, you just want a freezing cold slushy.
If you make this slushy, tell me what flavour you used! Cola? Orange Crush? Kool-Aid? Crystal Light? Share your version with us!
Next Post: Either Shake-and-Bake Tofu (seriously!) or Syrian Vegetable Salad. I’m craving both, and they’re both heathy, so why not? Any votes for which one I should post next?
