Slushie's make summer fun and we love that they are so easy to make. Our friend, @hawaiianketodad, recently shared his favorite way to make a hydrating, electrolyte slushie to help cool him down and we can't wait to share it with you too. You can make this with whatever frozen fruit you have along with any of the Ultima Replenisher flavors you happen to have on hand. We used Watermelon, Blue Raspberry and Lemonade flavors for our electrolyte slushie.
2 scoops (or 2 stickpacks) Ultima Replenisher Watermelon flavor
2 scoops (or 2 stickpacks) Ultima Replenisher Lemonade flavor
2 scoops (or 2 stickpacks) Ultima Replenisher Blue Raspberry flavor
Fresh, small seedless watermelon
Fresh raspberries for garnish
In a shaker bottle, shake up 2 scoops or stickpacks of Ultima Replenisher Watermelon flavor powder with 16 oz of water. Pour into an ice cube tray. Repeat for the other two flavors so you have three separate ice cube trays each filled with a different Ultima flavor. Put the trays into the freezer and let set (about 2-4 hours depending on your freezer).
When you are ready to make the slushie, first, take a small, seedless watermelon and cut in half. Scoop out the center with a small ice-cream scoop and set aside 1 cup of fresh watermelon for this recipe. (Freeze the rest for use later.) Keep the two halves of the watermelon to serve your slushies in.
When ice cube trays are completely frozen, remove the watermelon flavor first and add to a blender along with 1 cup of watermelon chunks. Blend until you have a slushie consistency. Using a plastic spatula, pour contents into one side of the watermelon bowl.
Next blend the Lemonade flavor and add to your watermelon bowl and finally blend the Blue Raspberry flavor ice cubes and add to the watermelon bowl. Now you have a beautiful trio of flavors. Top with fresh raspberries and serve. Enjoy!
