This is the easiest treat you can do for your kids this summer.  Mine are always looking for something special, but I’m always looking for something easy.  This is EASY!

First, pick a drink that the kids like.  We made this at my mom’s house and she had grape soda, so we used it.  You can use lemonade, juice, whatever your kids love.

Next, you’ll want to pour it into your ice cream maker.  We have the kind that you keep the inner drum in the freezer.  When you’re ready to use it, you can just pull it out.  This is what my mom has and it works great.  I have this one.  Pour in the amount you’ll use.  We used about 1 liter of soda.  That’s all you need to do.  Turn the ice cream maker on and let it run until you have a smoothie.  It takes around 20 minutes.  It really depends on your ice cream maker so that’s just a guideline.

The good thing about his is that the kids don’t really eat more than a 1/2 cup.  Even though the soda is not the best thing for them, they aren’t eating a ton of it.

Enjoy making your slushie this summer!  Your kids will love it.

I bet you could do this with juice too and it would be amazing! I never thought to put drinks in my ice cream maker. I have one that you freeze the bowl as well and the bowl is always frozen....just in case we need to make something.
