Juicy Summer Slushie with Old Orchard Juice

Summer is coming and that means you and your kiddos are going to be wanting more cold drinks to keep cool! Most kids LOVE popsicles, slushies, and snow cones on a hot summer day. If you buy them out you’ll likely pay a premium price.  So why not make these cool drinks at home?  You’ll save a bunch of money AND you’ll get bonus points for being such a cool mom. :)

Sure, there are lots of ways to make slushies at home. The most common method is to use some kind of commercial slushie syrup or to make your own using powdered drink mixes like Kool-aid.  But, if you’re looking for something a bit more healthy without losing the fun, why not use juice?

For these slushies I used Old Orchard frozen juice. It comes in a plastic, recyclable can in the freezer section at your local Walmart for just $1.47 per can.  I like using the concentrated juice because I can mix it double strength for this cold treat just like you would Kool-aid, so it won’t get watered down when you blend it with ice.

Old Orchard juice is also economical – much cheaper than other juices you can purchase. So, this fun summer treat won’t break the bank. Plus you’ll feel better about skipping all the sugar that regular slushies are packed with and choosing 100% juice with no added sugar, no artificial colors, and no preservatives.

They come in lots of delicious flavors like apple, apple cherry, apple kiwi strawberry, orange, and pomegranate cherry.  We used apple cherry for this batch but you can pick any flavor your kids choose.

    I’m confused by the recipe-I think it may be written wrong? It says to add the juice to the blender with half the juice and add more juice if it isn’t slushy enough. I think it means add more ice? :)

  2. Can you please clarify? Sounds good.
