Cherry Pineapple Slush
When the days start getting hot every summer, I’m always glad that we have a good blender on hand. A high-power blender is capable of making all sorts of stuff from tasty blender soups to cool, refreshing blender drinks. We’ve made a few before on the site, and today we’ve got a new one for you folks to try: a Cherry Pineapple Slush!
Even when it comes to blended drink recipes, this is still a super easy one. The ingredients list is kept nice and short and making the drink is as simple as tossing everything in the blender! What’s not to love when a delicious, refreshing slushie is just a few pulses of the blender away?
This Cherry Pineapple Slush is the best parts of a pineapple and a cherry slush in one drink. Blend up a tall pitcher of this stuff and serve it up at your next grill-out or pool party- it’s an excellent party drink! If it’s an adults only kind of party, maybe even add in a splash of rum or vodka for a bit of extra flavor and kick. However you serve this blender drink up, we know you’ll love it!

For another easy, dead-simple blender drink, give our Raspberry Lemonade Slushie a try. It’s the perfect way to use up any fresh or frozen raspberries you have on hand! All you have to do is toss everything in the blender and let it do the rest of the work for you.
We love our Chick-fil-A, and we’re so glad we have this recipe for CopyCat Chick-fil-A Frosted Lemonade handy! When it comes to homemade lemonade, this recipe is definitely one of the best. The secret is to blend it up with a bit of ice cream- it creates the perfect texture and adds just a touch of creaminess.
Not in the mood for blender drinks? Then you’ll want to taste some of our Raspberry Iced Tea. For this recipe, all you really need to do is make up a quick syrup from some sugar and raspberries. Once that’s done, mix it up with your favorite iced tea and a bit of lemon for the perfect sipper!
Ingredients for Cherry Pineapple Slush
Pineapple – We’re going to need frozen pineapple chunks for this Cherry Pineapple Slush. You can either cut a whole pineapple into chunks yourself and then freeze them or you can by frozen pineapple chunks from the store.
Cherry Kool-Aid Mix
How to Make a Slushie in a blender
Mix up the Kool-Aid, following the instructions below.
Combine the Kool-Aid, pineapple chunks, and ice in a high-powered blender.
Pulse and blend until slushie forms and your desired consistency is reached.
After mixing up your Kool-Aid, you’re ready to start blending things! To a high-powered blender, add your Kool-Aid, pineapple chunks, and some ice. Start pulsing until a slush starts to form.
From here, it’s just getting the right consistency. To thicken your slushie up, add some more ice. Want to thin it out a bit? Add a bit more water or some leftover Kool-Aid. Once you get to the right consistency, transfer your slushie to some awaiting glasses. Optionally garnish with some maraschino cherries and/or pineapple chunks and enjoy!

Could you use strawberry koolaid for this recipe?
I would make up regular strength Koolaid and make icecubes out of that. This way it does not water down your slushie and leaves you with the cherry flavour until the very end. I will be making this once I can cross to the USA again to get the Koolaid packets.
I seem to have missed how much vodka goes in?
Haha I’d say the amount of vodka added would vary according to your plans post consumption!
