Homemade Fruit Slushies

1 cup Fresh or Frozen Fruit

1 1/2 cups of Ice

Splash of Water or Coconut Water

1 Drop of Trace Minerals for electrolytes (optional)

Raw Honey or Stevia (optional)

Peppermint Leaves, Citrus Rind, Fresh Grated Ginger


It’s best to start with cold fruit. I tested this recipe with fresh watermelon and cantaloupe and frozen raspberries and blue berries.

Pour 1 cup of fruit into your blender and add 3/4 cup of ice. Blend the fruit and ice together until it’s smooth. Add more ice as needed. We noticed that the frozen fruit needed less ice than the fresh fruit. You can freeze coconut water in ice-cube trays and use instead of regular ice. The coconut water adds more sweetness and electrolytes to your slushie!

Taste your slushie. If you want it to be a little sweeter add 1/2 teaspoon of raw honey or a drop of stevia. Add a drop of Trace Minerals of electrolytes.

Flavor it up! I added peppermint to the watermelon slushie and grated orange zest to the blueberry slushie.
