Ready to blow your kids’ minds? This weekend, surprise them with the most awesome summertime dessert there is: homemade slushies!
We call them slushies here in Chicago and I remember my mom buying them for me at the local mall when I was a kid. They were so much fun and so many flavor options! I did a little research and found that in other areas they are called a few different things – maybe you call them slushes, ices, ice-es, or something else. Whatever you call them, I hope you remember them as fondly as I do.
Instead of running out to the mall and buying one today as you reminisce, pull out the blender and make one at home! You will need 2 things to make slushies at home – flavored simple syrup and crushed ice. Super easy!
Slushies were definitely one of my favorite childhood treats, but with goodness-knows-what in those technicolor flavors at my local convenience stores, parks, and ice cream shops, I’m now a bit hesitant to partake. At least, I was until I learned just how easy it is to make flavored simple syrup of my own!
Relive some of those fond childhood memories or make some new ones with your own kids!
