Do you have a Blendtec? If not, you're missing out on one of my favorite kitchen tools.
I ♥ my Blendtec.
Reason 7,364,259 : Homemade slushies.
I don't know why I didn't think of it. I mean, if you watch any Will it Blend videos on youtube, you can pretty much blend anything in a Blendtec.
But one day, my 5 year old wanted a slushie. He suggested we just crunch up ice and pour in juice. Then - brain spark! I realized I could use my favorite kitchen gadget! And voila!
So - here you go - here's just how easy it is. :)
Step 1: Put a bunch of ice in your Blendtec. It doesn't matter how much, really. Just guess.
Step 2: Blend for 30 seconds or less - and you get this awesome powdery snow!
Step 3: Put snow in cups.
Step 4: Pour in 100% juice - we used Apple.
Step 5: Stick in a spoon-ended straw.
Step 6: Slurp. :)
I love my little kiddos. And they loved the slushies.
