Raspberry Lemonade Slushy

.
 
You asked for it.
 
The most simple, yet refreshing slushy you’ll ever make.  
(My sister shared this simple recipe with me a few years ago.  Here’s to you April……..{{clink}}……I love this drink!)
  
I mentioned making a raspberry lemonade slushy after the post sharing the newly organized tutorial buttons and tabs, here.  
  
I was tired.  
 
I needed a little pick-me-up.  
 
And I guess many of you wanted to share that same refreshing treat with me.  
(Wish you could come over…)
 
I love seeing these two fruits together.  
The colors are so vibrant and so rich.  Love them.  
 
 
And it’s crazy how blending such a delicate sweet with such a powerful sour, creates the perfect combination.  
  
And ahhhh, you will want to drink glass, after glass, after glass…
 
It’s really the perfect summer treat.  
 
Okay, and any-time-of-year treat.  
Who needs the sun to drink this stuff…
 
 
Want to blend up a glass for yourself?
.
 
 Here are the 3 ingredients:
.
Simply Lemonade brand lemonade (real lemon juice, not from concentrate, seriously delicious), frozen unsweetened raspberries, and ice.  Okay, and a little sugar if desired.  
 
Blend up some of the juice with the ice.  There’s no science to it, just add enough ice to make it a bit slushy.
 
Then add some frozen raspberries.
 
Blend that all up again.
 
 
Add some sugar.  
 
Enough to bring the sweetness back up but it doesn’t need to be overpoweringly sweet.  Make sense?
 
Then pour and serve.  Your friends and family will love you.
.
And how about some mini glasses for the little ones.
 
They will slurp it right up.  Yum.
 
 But really, the summer will be gone soon.  
 
So, go and enjoy the sun while you can.  
  
Ahhhhhhh……..

    For a little healthier sugar substitue use Fructose granulated sugar. It is from fruit. I can’t wait to try this Raspberry lemonade slushy either. You can get it bulk at Winco or at health food stores. It doesn’t mess with your blood sugar like sugar can.
