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!

    What a beautiful drink for summer! I love all the fresh berries out now so this is a great use for them!

    How cute that your daughter loves to be running around outside with Daddy…and lets face it, sometimes that means a nice little break for us moms. 😉
    Love everything about this slush! I am so ready for summer!

    • Ashley says

      Me too! It’s so cold here right now though… I can hardly wait to kick them both outside for some quiet time again! Lol

    Hi Ashley! I wish I’d read this post before I went to the store! It’s 87 degrees here and this looks so refreshing!

      • Dorothy Dunton says

        Hi Ashley! About the cold – that’s why we moved from MI to TN! I have three great nieces who are all little blondes! The oldest is coming up on seven and her twin sisters are going to be five this year. Enjoy every moment with your little ones, they grow up so fast! I probably don’t need to tell you this. My son is 32 and I cherish every moment I spend with him! I still think of him as my “baby” and always will!

      • Ashley says

        It is crazy how quickly they grow! I’m already amazed that my youngest will be starting nursery school this fall. I think I might cry!

  4. Medha @ Whisk & Shout says

    Slushies scream summer to me! Near my house, we have a store that, once a week, sells unlimited-refill slushies for a dollar. And the cups are ENORMOUS. Now, this looks way more delicoius and healthy than those slushies and I might just have to make an unlimited amount of these next time!

    • Ashley says

      Haha, I think that’s a great idea! I’m actually not a fan of 7-11 slushies at all — too sugary!

  5. Beth says

    Being a nanny, I know how sacred warm, sunny days are! They can change everyone’s attitude! And a little slush in the afternoon wouldn’t hurt either!

  6. Heather / girlichef says

    Deck-sitting, flip flop-wearing, and slushie-sipping sounds exactly like what the doctor ordered right now! This does sound like the perfect chilly thing for hot weather sippin’.

  7. Michelle says

    Oh my gosh, this sounds divine! I also love that you look forward to watching your husband shovel dirt while you relax and sip this. Haha!
