Summer Slushies 4 Ways

We all want some respite from the scorching heat in Summer and what better way than to have ice cold Slushies!

I chose summer special fruits for these Slushies because they are abundantly available in the market these days and it’s always good to have seasonal fruits.

Here are four of my favorite fruit and herb flavor combinations in the form of fruit slushies. An excellent mid-afternoon snack and keeps you wanting for more. Takes 10 minutes to whip up a slushie.

Here are the recipes.
