Slushies are all the rage during the summer time! This version is cool, refreshing, and fruity delish-ness that’s so perfect to have on a hot day!
What I like about making homemade slushies is that you get to decide what frozen fruit to use, the drink’s thickness, sweetness, and wherever or not you want to spike it with a little alcohol. What fruit or fruit combinations do you like in your slushies?
I am a big fan of the sweet and tart tropical flavours of pineapple! The addition of coconut water, which is fresh and has a mild sweetness, along with zesty, bright lime juice goes so well together!
For this recipe, I also like to add a little bit of rum to give it a pina colada feel as well as add a squeeze or two of pure honey for extra sweetness. Agave nectar is another great option, especially if you prefer to keep it vegan-friendly.
This recipe is so easy to make - just throw the ingredients in a blender, whiz it on high until slush forms, and enjoy an ice-cold drink! This was just what I needed after a long day of running around and checking things off my to-do list!
Now here is my confession: I broke the Vitamix tamper (that black plastic stick that you use to push down ingredients while in the blender) because I stupidly opened the lid, instead of placing it through the hole on top, and it touched the blade. This caused the plastic to shred into pieces. I had to throw out that slushy batch and make it again. Round two: it mixed just fine without the need of the tamper.
Oh well, making a second batch (sans plastic pieces and maybe a bit more rum) was totally worth it and still super fast to make and so, so delicious!
I hope you enjoy this recipe!
