Healthy Slushy

Healthy Slushie

The other day my daughter and I were in a store walking around, when she starts “MOM LOOK AT THIS!!!”   She found a snow cone maker and said she really wanted it.  Well I told her we did not need to buy that Mommy could make those at home, I thought I could figure out how to make some healthy snow cones and she would just think her mommy was so awesome for making her a special treat.

Well my dreams of grandeur were crushed when one my snow cone looked more like a slushy and two she would NOT even try it.  It reminded me of when I was little and my mom made homemade hamburgers, my sister and I thought she was nuts they were not hamburgers they were way bigger than McDonalds burgers and well they did not taste anything like McDonalds burgers… YUCK!  Well now I prefer homemade vs. McDonalds; but kids like the first thing they taste and my daughter has had snow cones before so I was not fooling her with my healthy treat.
Rest assured that myself and my youngest loved them though, but I will call them a slushy instead of a snow cone they really did not look anything like a snow cone.   So if you don’t have too picky an eater or if your kids like berries you should make this yummy healthy drink for them, hey it is great for a HOT day (which really every day is a HOT day right now!)
