My family loves to cool off with slushies, so discovering that you can make slushies in an ice cream maker has been such a game-changer. Now, we can make them whenever we want, and we don’t have to suffer the disappointment of walking into a gas station only to discover that our favorite flavor isn’t ready yet.

Since an ice cream maker freezes and churns, like a commercial slushie machine, these come out just like the store-bought version – maybe even a little better, since you won’t struggle to drink these with a straw, and you won’t end up with a bunch of flavorless ice when you get down to the bottom of your slushie.

Make a batch, and I guarantee you’ll be making another.

What You Do:

Fill Ice Cream Maker With Your Favorite Sweet Beverage

Pour your favorite sweet beverage into the freezer bowl of your ice cream maker. Then, churn.
