Make Your Own Healthy Delicious Slushies!

Healthy Fruit Slushies!
I make these most summers, fresh fruit slushies.I cut up fresh watermelon and throw into the blender, until pureed liquid only a few seconds is required. Then I pour the liquid into ice cube trays and freeze.I store them in zip lock bags in the freezer until required, then all I do is put some of the ice cubes (about 8 per cup) into the blender and blend until I have a thick icy mixture, pour into cups and serve. It's a great cool healthy treat on a hot summers day. You can use most fruits, I have a batch of rock melon ice cubes in a zip lock bag in the freezer. You could use mangoes, oranges, apples, kiwi fruit, the list goes on.They are way healthier then those nasty slushies with the artificial colours and flavours you can buy..Yuck...If you use oranges juice them, then freeze in ice cube trays, apples no need to puree first you could peel and cut and store in zip lock bags in freezer until required. You can also use the ice cubes in glasses of water and fruit punches, they look colourful & decorative. Kids love just sucking the fruit cubes ...better then any icy pole for little ones as they often put a few in a cup ...will keep them cool and happy for a while....


  1. Perfect timing Sherrie! I was given 5 watermelons today for free and was wondering how well it freezes. My kids will love this. Thanks!

  2. What a great idea Sherrie. I will be doing this for sure!
