Homemade Slushees

Who needs the ice cream man?! Not us. This recipe is so easy & versatile!!! You can switch up the extract flavors, along with the color & make numerous types of slushees for very low cost. This makes a slew of cupfuls! The little ice treats were certainly a hit at our home & the blue color of these make them perfect little BBQ additions for Independence Day celebrations!!!

Happy birthday USA!
