What flavors of Homemade Slushies can you make?
This can be made with basically any flavor combination that you can come up with using Kool-Aid or flavored drink packets! That means you can really get creative, you can even add candies to it too like Nerds or Skittles.
Those are two favorites for my kids.
Another fun addition is adding a scoop of ice cream too which is easy to create a slushie float!

These only take 5 minutes to make, simply add all ingredients to the blender and mix it up to your desired consistency. If needed you can add more ice to it; however, we haven’t had to add any additional.
As mentioned above you can mix and match flavors to get the best flavor. These are best served right away instead of frozen for later.
