Summer is here! The temperature is starting to rise and the kids are outside playing. These Homemade Slushies are a perfect afternoon treat by the pool or even served along with your Friday Night Pizza Dinner. The flavors are unlimited, and the addition of Ice Cream makes them even better.

We started with the original recipe from MomAdvice and add in a couple scoops of Vanilla Ice Cream. They are very inexpensive to make and the kiddos can even whip them up on their own.

Beware though…you may get a brain freeze and they are a little addicting too!
