Kool-Aid Slushie

Did you ever have cups with the Kool-Aid guy's face on them when you were  younger?  We did, and I remember loving when my mom made this slushie for us to drink in those cups.  Good memories!

Kool-Aid Slushie from Blissful Roots

I don't have those cups for my boys, but we still love making the slushie.  My husband is actually the biggest Kool-Aid fan at our house.  We don't ever drink it until summer hits.  The good thing about this slush is that it only calls for 3/4 cup sugar instead of a whole cup (that's good, right?  I'll keep telling myself it is).

You can use any flavor of Kool-Aid for this.  We used tropical punch for the red one in the picture, and it's one of my favorites!  There's a new watermelon flavor that Kool-Aid makes, and it's my husband's new favorite.  It's fun to experiment with the flavors.  You could even try mixing a couple. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you found a little something worth your time.

Linking up to these parties & Savvy Southern Style.

  8. Yummy, I'll have to do this. I only ever use 3/4 c sugar for my kool-aid. My Mom used to pre-measure it into baggies when we were kids, put all the baggies into an old container, then when we wanted kool-aid and there was none made we could make it ourselves without the mess. I've done that for my kids and it's wonderful

    1. That's so funny your mom used to do that because now that I've made the slushie myself, I've thought about using 3/4 C. every time (even in plain Kool-Aid). Now I know I should. Thanks so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I sure appreciate it! Stop by anytime!
