Easy 100% Juice Frozen Slushie - Whole30, Paleo, Gluten-free, Dairy-free. The easiest summer treat you ever met!

Summer Slushies from 7-11, Taco Bell, and Sonic used to be on our summer bucket list every year. There is just something so refreshing about these icy drinks on a hot summer day! But, they are sadly loaded with refined sugar or high fructose corn syrup and artificial colors…yikes!

So, I was determined this summer to figure out an alternative. I was shocked by how easy it was! This almost doesn’t even feel like a recipe, but aren’t those the best kind?! And seriously, every parent needs to know about this one. I included several variations, based on what you have on hand.  We found the all juice blender method to be the most “slushie” like, but they are all delicious! I hope you have fun playing around with the possibilities of this one and let me know what combos were your faves!

NOTE IF YOU ARE ON  A WHOLE30: Yes, these are Whole30 compliant. However, it’s not ideal to drink large amounts of fruit juice or fruit based smoothies, as it’s all the sweetness of the fruit without all the fiber or volume. It could make a fun drink for a party or fun family night but I wouldn’t recommend it on the daily and use some personal responsibility as to if this has a healthy place in your Whole30.

Ingredients

Fruit Juice Blender Method

  • 3 cups frozen juice
  • 2 cups juice

Frozen Fruit +Juice Blender Method

  • 1 cup frozen fruit
  • 1 cup juice
  • 1 cup ice

Ice Cream Maker Method

  • juice

Instructions

Blender Methods

  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend at a high speed until slushy and large chunks of ice/frozen juice are chopped. Don't over blend or it will be really liquidy.

Ice Cream Maker Method

  1. Pour desired amount of juice in an ice cream maker and churn until thick and icy. In my Cuisinart Ice Cream maker it takes 10 minutes.

Recipe Notes

For all methods you can swap out part of the juice with flavored sparkling water for a little more of a bubbly texture (this will make it less sweet). Use any combination of juice and/or frozen fruit you have on hand and enjoy! My boys had lots of fun personalizing their flavors.

We found the Juice Blender Method to be the most slushie-like, which was my boy's favorite. The Frozen Fruit + Juice Method was still enjoyed but has more of a smoothie texture.
