How to Make a Slushie in a blender

Making a blender drink like our slushie is incredibly easy. Here’s all you have to do:
  1. Mix up the Kool-Aid, following the instructions below.
  2. Combine the Kool-Aid, pineapple chunks, and ice in a high-powered blender.
  3. 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!

  1. 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.
