The best part about summer is the refreshing drinks that come with it.

I’m sure you’ve been out at a restaurant or bar and seen this tall, sweet-looking drink in the ice bin. It’s usually bright blue with a straw sticking out of it. But what is that heavenly concoction? What does it taste like? And how can I make one myself?

The answer to all three questions is a slushie! A slushie is simply crushed up ice, flavored syrup*, and your favorite soda. That’s right – no special equipment needed!

All you need to do is put some ice cubes in a blender, pour some syrup on top, and add your favorite soda (Coca-Cola® Slurpee®, for example). Then just blend until the mixture becomes icy cold and smooth.

They’re especially easy if you own a Ninja blender!

In this blog post, we will show you 3 different recipes for slushies that can be mixed up any time of day: classic fruit flavor, kool-aid, and coke.

Just follow our simple step-by-step instructions and enjoy your favorite drink all summer long!

Making slushies at home is a great way to save money. You can make them in bulk and freeze them.

When you want one, just pull it out of the freezer and pop it in the fridge for an hour or so before you serve it.

The benefits of making your own homemade slushies are that they’re healthier than store-bought ones because they don’t have all of those extra additives and preservatives.

Ninja blenders are an excellent tool for making slushies at home. They allow you to mix up your favorite ingredients into a delicious, icy concoction that is perfect for summer days and nights.

There are many different recipes out there.

The best way to make a slushie is by having the correct ingredients and blending them correctly. It’s actually really easy!

Just take your chilled water, ice cubes, fruit flavor of choice, and then add some special ingredient for sweetness (or at least taste sweet).

Place all these ingredients in a blender with enough room so that they can blend properly without spilling.

Then give them 2 minutes or more until you get an icy texture like what comes out from those ol’ school slushie machines!

Now let’s look into some interesting recipes involving summertime flavors.

1. Fruit Slushie

This recipe is perfect for when you’re feeling a little under the weather.

It’s packed with vitamins and nutrients that will help your body heal itself, while also providing much-needed hydration to keep those pesky symptoms at bay!

To make this drink, all you need are 1 cup ice (plus extra depending on what type of fruit used), about 1/2 – 2 cups chopped fresh fruit such as banana or mangoes; and finally some sparkling water which can be either still or carbonated–whatever floats your boat!

I like adding in additional herbs, spices, other ingredients because it helps me tailor my drinks so they fit my mood exactly.

For example, if I feel energized by citrus flavors I might add lemon juice.

Method

  1. Wash and chop the fruit: Wash, clean and peel any fruits. Cut it up into smaller pieces so that you have a 1 ½ to 2 cups total measurement when done chopping.
  2. Put all ingredients in the Ninja blender and mix them up. Once you’ve mixed everything, add the ice-cold sparkling water to cool things down even more. If needed (depending on what your fruit is), sprinkle some lemon juice or mint leaves over top of it!
  3. Blend on high speed until the ice is completely crushed and the fruit is blended. Check to see if it’s slushy consistency by squishing a handful of your mixture against your palm–if they stay together, you’re done. If not, add some more ice or continue blending longer with an occasional stir in between pulses for about 10 minutes total as needed before serving!
  4. Pur into a glass and drink up immediately for best flavor.

2. Kool-Aid Slushie Recipe

Kool-Aid slushies are a classic summer drink. They’re bright, refreshing and taste like childhood! This recipe is really easy to make.

These make for great summertime treats when you want something cold on those warm days with family or friends – just fill up your glass of ice cubes (or use frozen fruit) then add in some packets of whichever flavors sounds best at the time from our collection here so they blend together nicely and voila: your own personal kiddie treat made by yourself!

Method

  1. Start by filling your blender with 2 cups of cold water, 1 packet of Kool-aid (any flavor!), ½ cup sugar, and 4 cups ice cubes.
  2. Blend on high until all the ice has been turned into slush!
  3. Serve in standard drinking glasses. This recipe will make enough to serve four people.

3. Coca Cola Slushie Recipe

Coca-cola slushies are a popular summer drink.

They’re easy to make at home with only a few ingredients and minimal equipment.

If you have a Ninja blender, the process of making a coke slushie is even easier!

Here we will show you how to create your own coke slushie from scratch without compromising on taste or flavor.

Ingredients

  1. 3 cups of Coca-Cola {or two 12 oz. cans}
  2. 8 large Ice Cubes

Instructions

Here is how to make delicious Coca-Cola slushies at home!

  1. Pour one and a half cups of soda or 1 can into an ice cube tray. Place in the freezer for 4 hours, until it has completely frozen.
  2. Then transfer that block of Coke from your freezer onto a blender with 8 cubes of ice, pour chilled coke on top (1 cup) then blend together well before serving in Cute Mason Jars with straws or spoons so you don’t have any spills!
