This summer fruits flavoured slushie is the perfect way to beat the heat this summer. Quick and easy to make at home. Your kids (and you) will love them.
I can’t believe it’s July already. It feels like I just blinked through June!
But wow, I can certainly tell it’s July as it’s actually hot here in England. Don’t faint now!
My girls came home from school today like red faced drippy messes. Drawn like bees to flowers, they just flopped down in front of the cooling fan, bodies like starfish!
“Mummmmmmm? I’m hot.” You’d think they’d appreciate a hot summer since most of the time it’s, well, raining!
I busted out the blender and got to work. I didn’t have many fruits in to make a super cold smoothie, but I did have in the cordial (squash) juices in which would make a nice Slush Puppy-esq slushie (aka. snow cone?)
And since it’s summer and all, I had the summer fruits flavoured juice in – just perfect!
This slushie is so easy to make, just literally a case of blending the 4 ingredients together. Oh, and you have to boil the kettle too! #shockhorror
Devour with a straw or a spoon.
Summer Fruits Slushie Recipe
Prep Time:5 mins
Yield: 1 slushie
- 1 tbsp granulated sugar
- 1 tbsp boiling water
- 260g ice cubes
- 4 tbsp summer fruits cordial (squash), see notes
- In a cup, add the sugar and boiling water and stir continuously until the sugar has completely dissolved. Set aside until it is just luke warm or cooler. (see notes for time-saving method)
- Once the syrup has cooled enough, add the summer fruits cordial to the syrup, then pour the ice in the blender.
- Add the syrup over the ice and blend until the correct consistency. If you find small cubes in the slushie, just use a spoon to push them down to the bottom and blend again. Sometimes shaking the blender slightly will help too.
- Pour into a frozen or chilled glass and enjoy.
- Please note: I have used double concentrated cordial in this recipe. If you have regular squash, just double to amount to 8 tbsp.
- If you don’t want to wait for the syrup to cool, use use of the ice in the syrup to cool it down quickly. If this results in a watery slushy, just add a touch more ice.
- Need more than one glass, this recipe works when doubled, or even tripled! I made them for my children. Just made sure your blender is big enough.
