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!

  1. Ohhhhh, I have really been into smoothies lately and these look delish! And they are beautiful as well. Don't you just love beautiful food? Nice post. Thank you!

  2. 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
