Summer is almost here, and while some people love it, many dread it. Imagine coming home from work on a hot day, exhausted and sweaty, and all you want to do is relax and refresh. While some families stock up on ice cream or frozen yoghurt, many order in slushies or go to the nearest food outlet to get their hands on their favourite summer drink.
What if we told you that the best way to refresh and recharge after a long (and sweaty) day is to drink slushies? Forget ordering in or driving the extra mile after work to quench your thirst. We’ve got just the solution for you—that’s right, DIY (or do it yourself) slushies.
Slushies are a popular beverage across the globe, especially in warmer parts of the world like Spain, Portugal, South America, and several parts of Asia.
Let us now move on to how you can enjoy your favourite slushies in the comfort of your home with just the base. These DIY slushies are not just more cost-effective, but they are also healthier since they contain fewer calories and are delicious no matter which flavour you choose. And best of all, it is the perfect way to stay hydrated throughout the day!
What makes slushies so flavorful is the use of concentrates and syrups, and they even come without gluten or allergens. Best of all, these do not come with any modifications; they are therefore lower in calories and more healthier than your store-bought ones.
The best slushies for summer
● Slush Watermelon JA/ Watermelon Slushie
Summer is incomplete without watermelon. This amazing Slush Watermelon JA mix is the best way to spice up your summer fun. It is gluten-free, allergen-free, trans-fat-free, and GMO-free.
How to Make Slush Watermelon, JA
The slush watermelon JA is the base that you can mix with your shredded ice. Add the juice of a lime and top it off with mint, if you like. If you’d like a little twist in your slushie, you can add Sprite (which, although tasty, is a little unhealthier and more on the sweet side) or regular club soda. You can also add fresh watermelon slices for an authentic aftertaste.
● Pineapple slushie
Pineapples can make anything taste good. This fruity, high-vitamin C slushie will blow your mind with its taste and health benefits.
You can prepare the pineapple slushie with our Pineapple Granita JA base, shredded ice or ice cubes, fresh lemonade, and chunks of fresh pineapple. If you are using ice cubes, blend all the ingredients together and serve them chilled. If you feel your slushie is thick, you can add some filtered water to it, but make sure it doesn’t lose its consistency.
● Strawberry Slushie
Strawberry slushies are a favourite among many people, and quite honestly, they are also easy to make.
All you need to do is take our instant strawberry granita, which is the base of the slushie, and mix it with shredded ice (or ice cubes), fresh strawberries, 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice, and filtered water. The preparation takes less than 5 minutes, and it will leave you rejuvenated.
In conclusion, slushies do not have to be unhealthy. While store-bought slushies are convenient because no preparation is needed, you and your family deserve to know what goes into your slushies.
As a result, we believe you make your favourite slushies at home. Our slushie bases are all allergen-free, gluten-free, and GMO-free. This means you do not have to worry about any bad reactions, and you can tweak the flavour of your drink as per your liking.
