Whether it’s a ©7-Eleven Slurpee® or a Dairy Queen Arctic Rush® you enjoy, Kool-Aid packages and ice turn into a similar refreshing summer treat for all the kids… and mom and dad too! Break out that blender and make some homemade slushies today instead of spending money at the store! This particular recipe I received from a friend. Her daughter and my daughter were constantly asking for Slurpees® from the convenience store. It became a ritual, one that became rather costly. So she found this recipe, tried it with the girls and was an instant supermom! Try it at home with your kids today. Whether it’s family night or just ahot summer day, they are sure to enjoy this treat.
