This slush is full of strawberry and lemon flavor and is so refreshing! Keep it in the freezer and pull it out for your next barbecue or potluck!

I’m a big fan of fruity drinks.

And summer, strawberries, lemons, and stripey straws.

Deck-sitting, flip-flop wearing, and ice cream.

I was tempted to just end this post right there and take a nice tall glass of slush out onto the deck and watch my husband shovel dirt, but I wouldn’t want to halt progress.

We’ve still got “a lot” of summer left (in Manitoba, a lot of summer is maybe a couple months), but I have to say – I’m obsessed.

I have this theory that some nice weather and a good run around outside makes 3 year olds a little more normal. I know when my girl is cooped up inside, she gets a little bit crazy.

A little bit more crazy than your average 3-year-old crazy.

But she could hang around all day outside, even if she’s riding along in the tractor with Dad for hours, or shovelling dirt, or collecting rocks – as long as she’s outside, she’s perfectly happy.

Which leaves me a couple quiet hours in the evenings to sit around, drinking some slush, inside, writing this post about how it’s so nice to be outside in the summer. 🙂

This slush is a recipe I got from Taste of Home, and I’ve been making it for years. I kept the “sensational” from its original title (because it is), but I changed up the juice flavors a bit to suit our tastes. It was time to share! I love slush because you can make it ahead of time, and pull it out for a last minute barbecue or get together. It’s so refreshing and fruity when it’s hot outside, and you can mix up the jello, juice, and fruit flavors to make your own combo!

    Yay for summer time!! I am more excited for you guys to get summer weather then I am for me. I hate the summers where I live, but I know you must be sick of cold and snow by now. This drink looks perfect for summer. I would grab one, go to my patio and kick my feet up. Wait maybe I’ll stay inside because 115 degrees is way to hot for me. But I would love to drink this anytime. Pinned! 🙂

      Haha, the slush is just as enjoyable if you drink it inside! 🙂 I can’t imagine summer where you live! There are times I can’t even handle summer here — it is probably just as hot, but not for quite as long!
