Homemade Slushies

Thanks to Ramblings of a Crazy Woman for this great idea!!

Yesterday was just Hot Hot Hot & a perfect day to try out this new trick! As my note states, we didn't have much luck making the grape pop into a slush... but when we replaced it with grape juice from juice pouches (hey, it's what we had to work with!), I'm happy to report that we had slush in a matter of minutes!

Here's what you'll need:
-2 zipper bags
-2 cups of ice
-1/3 cup of ice cream salt (no, not rock salt like Busy Bee's friend thought :) )
-3 juice pouches or similar amount of juice/lemonade

Pour the juice into the first bag and seal. Then place the sealed bag in the second bag and add the ice & salt around it. This is the fun part, take turns shaking it! This is where Busy Bee & her friend came in handy... Busy's Bee's favorite method was to jump up & down while holding the bag. You might want to wear winter gloves because it gets cooooooold fast!

We poured the frozen concoction into bowls and used silly straws to enjoy it! This got two thumbs up & we'll definitely do this in the future.

In the interest of full disclosure, I think that the pop would have slushified (is that even a word??) eventually as we saw signs of it starting to work!

Here is the result - granted it's a few minutes after being poured into the bowl. (I told you it was hot!) On a side note, don't you moms just love clear grape juice?

Bee Happy,
