Raspberry-Citrus Slushies

I love fun summer drinks, and y’all should know that around here “drinks” always refer to non-alcoholic family friendly ones! These are modeled after traditional frozen lemonades but with a few twists. It’s a slushy orange-lemon mix perfectly sweetened and poured over a gorgeous raspberry puree. The taste is amazing and the presentation- well, just look at it! It really is that bright and vibrant. They’re pretty darn impressive, and not hard to make if you do a little make-ahead prep. So next time you want to have something special for company, for your sweetie, or just for a night in with the fam, these are perfect. And I would even say they’d be yummy in the morning too for a special breakfast or brunch.

You can use fresh squeezed OJ, but to make things easier, I just use a good bottled one like Simply Orange.

If these sound good, try out some of our other drinks!

  3. THese sound so good. I just got out of surgery today and something cold on my throat sounds wonderful. YUmmy

  4. These look delicious!
    But I am actually asking a question about something else…
    Can you buy "bad" flour?
    I just made the Choc Zuch Bread (and this actually happened on the last few things I baked) and the flour was EXTREMELY lumpy!! I tried to stir it up better before I added it to the wet ingredients (becuase it ruined a cobbler a few weeks ago) and it still was lumpy! I have never had this problem before – but since I opened this bag of flour it has been lump after lump. Is it bad flour? Is it the humidity? Am I going to have to sift everytime I bake? aaagghhhhh! HELP!!
    :)thanks
