Ingredients for This Slushie

Preparation Time: 10 minutes plus cooling time
Serves : 12  cups 

Equipment : Saucepan, wooden spoon, freezer proof plastic container

  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 x 46-ounce can unsweetened pineapple juice
  • 2 cups orange juice
  • 2 medium banana's mashed
  • Ginger ale/sprite/7 Up - chilled

How to Make a Fruit Slushie

  1. Place the sugar and water in a saucepan and dissolve over a gentle heat.
  2. Mash the bananas and mix with the fruit juices.
  3. Stir fruit juice mixture and sugar syrup together and pour into a freezer proof plastic container.
  4. Let it freeze for a couple of hours or until ice crystals are beginning to form. Then remove from the freezer and give it good mix with a hand held electric beater.
  5. Return to the freezer and repeat step 4 a couple more times. You want the mix to look slushy rather than creamy smooth.
  6. Now freeze it overnight or for at least 6 hours.
  7. When you are ready to make the slushie, remove the mix from the freezer and let it stand for half an hour to soften it up a bit.
  8. Scrape a large spoonful of slushie and put it in a cup/glass. Top with ginger ale or other carbonated soft drink.
  9. Add a spoon or bendy straw and have the kids (and adults) drink it immediately!

Add pieces of fruit for garnish either in the slushies or hanging off the sides of the glass.

This is a great kid's party drink that they won't be able to forget.
