A hot summer day is a great time to enjoy a cold icy slushy. A slushy can be made many ways and in many flavors. You need crushed ice to make a slushy and a glass to put it in. You also need some type of flavor like fruit to put in a slushy.
In the old days before modern appliances people were still able to make slushys. I remember my dad taking a clean kitchen cloth and putting ice cubes into it. Then he would take a hammer and smash the ice to make crushed ice for making into flavored icy drinks. It worked and we often had icy drinks on hot summer days. You can still use this method to make crushed ice for slushys if you do not have a modern appliance.
Some refrigerators can make crushed ice. You can take that crushed ice and put in a blender. Then put in fresh fruit like berries, peaches or pineapple and blend it all up into a slushy. Pour it into a glass and enjoy.
You can also put ice cubes into a blender and add fruit and blend it all up for making a slushy. In my experience this is hard on the blender.
Many other appliances can be used to make slushys like a food processor of some kind. Just put in some ice and fruit and you can blend up an icy slushy.
Now there are even special kitchen appliances made just for making slushys. You can buy one of them but they will probably take up valuable kitchen space and you can get the same results with an appliance that can do multiple actions.
Slushys can be made in a variety of flavors like blueberry, raspberry, strawberry and peach. You can add milk, coconut milk, soy milk or almond milk to a slushy. You can make your slushy coffee flavored with some coffee added or you can make it chocolate flavored. Mint or peppermint can also be added for flavor in a slushy.
Slushys can be made many ways and served many ways. You can put the mixture in a tall glass with a straw in it. Add a lemon, lime or orange slice to the rim for added decoration. You can put pieces of fruit like cherries in the slushy for added excitement.
A cold refreshing slushy can be just what you need at the end of a hot tough day. Keep the ingredients on hand for a refreshing slushy anytime.
