JELL-O Slushy! | Summer Recipes
If you follow me on Instagram, you know we are already in full Summer mode here. The temperatures have already hit 100 degrees so keeping cool is high on my priority list. With the kids almost done with school, I decided it was time to come up with some kid friendly treats to keep them cool while they are outside playing. This JELL-O Slushy is just the thing! It stay frozen a lot longer than a traditional Slushy and the flavor combos are endless. Today I made a Strawberry Lemonade JELL-O Slushy and a Blue Raspberry Slushy! Both were amazing, and when I combined the two flavors I had an instant hit! The red and blue JELL-O Slushy will be perfect for the upcoming 4th of July Holiday, super fun and festive! But, as I said, any flavor combos will work. I may have to make a Watermelon flavor soon!
For the Strawberry Lemonade JELL-O Slushy, I used Strawberry Lemonade with gave it just the right amount of tart to counteract the sweetness of the JELL-O. The Blue Raspberry I used a Lemon-Lime Soda. As long as the flavors mix well, the combos are really endless!
Let me know in the comments below if you have tried this yummy recipe! Also, which other flavor combinations should we try next?

Never have thought to do this with jello. I have made some up and put in ice trays. It’s hot here in Indiana and humid and instead of tanking up on ice cream this would be the perfect way to cool off and not worry about calories. I usually buy the sugar free jello.
