Does My Fruit Need to Be Frozen

If you would like frozen fruit, go ahead and freeze your fruit the night before, or at least 6 hours. Just dice the fruit up, and place in a container or freezer bag.

Then toss right in the blender frozen. It will add more frozen texture to the slushies. But it is not a have to do step.

Variations to Homemade Slushies Recipe

  • Swap kiwi out with another fruit, like strawberries, cantaloupe, etc.
  • You can do a straight kiwi slushie or watermelon slushie. Just do all the same fruit.
  • If you don’t want to add in granulated sugar, feel free to use honey, agave, or sweetener of choice.
  • If you do not want layers of the slush, blend it all at once.

Expert Tips

  • Add in food coloring to each fruit to give the slushie layers a more vibrant coloring.
  • Use a spoon to gently pour on the different layers of slushies on top of each other to prevent them from mixing. If you pour too fast, it will not create the layered look.
  • Make sure the ice gets nice and crushed up to give you a true slushies texture.
  • Make this slushies recipe right before you want to serve it up. Otherwise, it will melt and water down the drink.

FAQs

What if I don’t own a blender?

You can use a hand mixer or food processor to break up the ice. Unfortunately, it is nearly impossible to crush the ice enough by hand to create the slush texture you are going to want without a blender, food processor, or mixer.

Can I make this a fizzy slushie?

Add in some fizzy water or a lemon-lime soda. This will help to give it a carbonated texture. Just make sure the soda is nice and chilled so it doesn’t melt your ice too fast.

Do I have to add in the sugar?

If you want to mix up the fruit and ice and find it is sweet enough as is, just skip the sugar. That is fine to do without adding sugar. The sugar just helps to add sweetness to the slushie and bring out the natural flavors of the fruit more.

Can I use a seeded watermelon for this slushie recipe?

So, if you want to use a seeded watermelon, I recommend making sure you remove the seeds. You can press the watermelon through a fine-mesh strainer or cheesecloth to help pull out any seeds. Then blend.
