Is this summer heat getting you all hot & sweaty?  This drink is the perfect way to cool down!  It’s incredibly delicious with many bright summery flavors.  It’s FRUITY (we’re talking bananas & lemonade), TROPICAL (using pineapple juice & cream of coconut) & extremely COOL & REFRESHING (enter the ice cubes & sparkling soda.)  This fun non-alcoholic drink is perfect for adults & kids alike.  I hope you like it as much as we did!  (We have even made it twice already!) Enjoy!

 

 

 

Caribbean Slush

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cold pineapple juice
  • 1 cup cream of coconut OR lite cream of coconut (NOT coconut milk; I use the brand Coco Lopez which is found in the aisle with the alcoholic mixers.)
  • 6 Tbsp Country Time Lemonade dry drink mix
  • 2 frozen bananas (freeze bananas ahead of time without the peel, whole or sliced)
  • 4-5 cups ice
  • 1 cup pineapple coconut sparkling water

Instructions

  1. Blend half of the first 5 ingredients until all the ice is pureed. Add half of the soda & blend again until just incorporated.
  2. Repeat with the remaining half of ingredients. Pour into cups & serve immediately.
