A Sweet and Cheap Summer Drink in 3 Easy Steps

July 12, 2017 | Posted by Karina Rovey

There’s nothing more refreshing than a cool, sweet lemonade on a hot summer’s day, right? Actually, there’s something better and almost just as easy to make: a lemonade slushy.

Lemonade slushies are my favorite snack/drink during the summer time. The best part about them is they’re so simple to make.

All you need is:

  • 1 cup powder lemonade mix
  • 2 cups water
  • 3 cups ice

Throw all the ingredients in a blender and blend until it reaches slushy consistency. Then pour it up and enjoy!

Lemonade slushy easy on the budget

Lemonade slushies are also very cost-effective (great for teens who are broke).

If you make one using lemonade mix from the typical 19 oz. plastic containers (found at Walmart, Kroger, Publix, etc.), one lemonade slushy ends up costing around $0.08.

Eight cents!

Now compare that to a small lemonade from Starbuck’s, which is $2.45. That’s a big difference. And personally, I think my lemonade slushies taste better :).

Since making them is so cheap and quick, lemonade slushies are great to make for family, friends or parties.

And, if you’re feeling adventurous, you can substitute Kool-Aid or any other type of drink mix in for lemonade. You can also add in some berries as well to add a little extra flair.

So, the next time you’re feeling parched on a toasty summer afternoon, you know what to do. Go make yourself a lemonade slushy!
