Red, White and Blue Grown Up Slushies

Red, White and Blue Grown Up Slushies

Save the bomb pops for the kids and make this boozy, patriotic slushie recipe for the adults. This frozen, yet pleasantly sweet, cocktail doesn’t use any added sugar.  Not only does it make the most beautiful blue color, but it also delivers vitamins and minerals. Pro tip: Make the layers in advance and then assemble the drinks right before serving for the most colorful delivery.

Yields: 6 (1 1/2 cup servings)

  1. For the white layer, process coconut milk, 2 1/2 ounces of the rum, and 2 cups of the ice in a food processor until slushy consistency, about 20 seconds. Pour into a freezable container; freeze until ready to use.

  3. For the blue layer, process pineapple, blueberries, remaining 1/2 cup strawberries and remaining 2 1/2 ounces rum, and 2 cups ice until slushy consistency, about 20 seconds. Pour into a freezable container; freeze until ready to use.
  4. When ready to serve, loosen up each slushy mixture with a fork.
  5. Spoon about 1/2 cup of each mixture into a tall glass, making 3 distinct layers.
