Super Simple Summer Slushies

I know this is so easy, but I've made some bad batches of homemade slurpees over the years. Who was the master back in the Allred days? Kim Edwards? I can't remember, but I always have trouble with the proportions. We made these with orange koolaid for FHE and they were GREAT!

2 cups ice water
1 packet fruit-flavored drink mix (like kool-aid)
2/3 cup sugar
4 cups of ice

Put all of the ingredients into your blender. Put the lid on and process on high for a full minute. Stop and check for ice chunks, scoop any big ones out, stir if needed. Blend again if needed. Serve. Drink slowly to avoid brain freeze.

Makes 4 8oz servings.

Oh. It's so hot and humid. I am so doing this tomorrow. My kids are going to really like this! Thanks so much, Kammy!

Sounds awesome! Our family loves Orange Julius' and smoothies (and freezing smoothies in molds) so this will fit right in. Although I don't buy kool-aid because of the high amount of sugar added...

Kammy! That totally brought back memories. : ) I remember we would sometimes add kiwis to our slushies - maybe because they were so inexpensive at Kent's Market. I've got to start making those again. Thanks for the idea.

Kammy, we just made these and loved them! Perfect for our sunny, hot seattle weather!!!
