For those who have the sugar free packets, pour the packet into a jar with a lid and add the 1 cup sugar that Kool-Aid recommends, then shake it up. Use 1/2 cup of the combination for this recipe, and save the other 1/2 for another batch later. This is great for helping kids get fevers down! Cools down the body.
Great recipe. I think that the serving size though should be 2-3 though, and I added half a cup more of ice. It was not to sour or sweet, in fact, it tastes just like when you buy it at places, and it is cheap.
Terrible recipe!!! Super sour and will never make it again!!
I was so surprised to find a slushie recipe here, so out of curiosity I tried them. My children were so excited to have these on a hot summer day and they even commented "it tastes better then the ones we get at the ice cream stand". I made the recipe up as listed and then added another cup of ice. Next time I think I would do 1/3 cool-aid mix and 4 c. ice, but that's just my attempt to reduce the sweetness. The kids like these as is.
I tried this recipe and it was good. I could never get the slushy taste before!
love these! i haven't had one in years, but my sister and i used to make them like crazy all summer long. sometimes we would even have them in the dead of winter using fresh fallen snow...i might have to do this soon!
These were fantastic for how easy they are. The kids had a Kool Aid Slushy stand and raised $80 in one afternoon for a local man who was in a severe car accident. We will make these again and again all summer long. Thank you!! (These are also great with flavored vodka.)
The kids enjoyed these. I used sugar free drink mix which made it tough to decide how much powder to add. 1/2 cup would have been way too much (and used packets for 4-6 pitchers!) so I just used one packet. I also felt that this made 2-3 servings, not the 7 as written. That said, it was sweet and cold on a super hot day. Thanks!
