Slushie I made today with my Ninja 1200
1/2 cup blueberries
16oz s/f lemonade
1 pkt kiwi strawberry drink mix (s/f)
1 cup of ice

I put all this in the blender and crushed and then blended it. It was berry good. It came out just like a slushie, a little tart but I like 'em that way.

You could use any flavor drink mix. I had some Carb Smart that I needed to use up.

I usually make these with strawberries, but today the frozen blueberries were just staring at me.

It's really hot today, so I just had to make another one.

This time I just used s/f lemonade, s/f cherry drink mix pkt, and ice.
Ummm...so refreshing.

It's so great to be able to have slushies again that have the right texture.

Yesterday I made v-8. It didn't come out quite as smooth as the vitamix makes it, but it was much quieter.

Today I made tomato juice...nothing like fresh tomato juice.

I haven't been all that energetic in the kitchen cuz its just too hot here right now.

Nigel - My husband and I have been on a slushy, iced coffee kick. I add some unsweetened cocoa to my version because I love mocha flavor, but I definitely do not love a strong coffee flavor.

I got the iced coffee recipe from The Pioneer Woman website. She basically walks you through creating a quantity of concentrated, strong coffee. This is then blended (a serving at a time) with 1/2 and 1/2 and some sweetener.
