This is not only one of the easier slush recipes, it is also pretty. Which is not necessarily what people need out of their food but it doesn’t hurt. Now we also better discuss the fact that it calls for Kool-Aid. I normally wouldn’t scan my recipes hoping one of them contains Kool-Aid because, well, I don’t consider Kool-Aid an “ingredient”. But, trust me on this, this slush is amazing! AND pretty! Let’s not forget that.
1 pkg. Strawberry Lemonade Kool-Aid
1 c sugar
1 1/3 c water
2 c pineapple juice
1/3 c crushed pineapple (optional)
1 1/3 c Sprite
In large pitcher mix Kool-Aid, sugar, water and pineapple juice until sugar is dissolved. Pour into freezer container(s). Freeze overnight. When ready to eat, remove from freezer 10-15 minutes beforehand. Break up slush with fork and add crushed pineapple (optional) and Sprite. Stir until slushy. Serve immediately. Serves 8.
OR if you want to feed a large group:
6 pkgs. Strawberry Lemonade Kool-Aid
6 c sugar
8 c water
2 46-oz. cans pineapple juice
1 20-oz. can crushed pineapple
2 liters Sprite
Follow directions above. If freezing in large containers, freeze at least 48 hours and remove from freezer at least 30 minutes before ready to serve. Serves 48.
