So Refreshing: Tropical Fruit Slush Slimmed Down

on March 24, 2012

The past few days have been warm & sunny and I’ve just been reveling in the glorious weather. Hence the reason I missed two days of posting! So in honor of this summer preview I bring you a quick & easy drink recipe. It is great for an afternoon treat or with the addition of a little vodka a great low-cal drink option for a party or barbecue. It is also a great base recipe so the possibilities are endless as to how you want to make it. Try out different types of fruit and different types of sugar free drink mixes and you’ll always have new & creative combinations. I originally tried this out when I saw a drink recipe on pinterest that called for frozen peaches, lemonade & sprite. I’ve tried lots of combos since then…but I’ve included my favorite for this post.
Can you guess the best part about this drink recipe? Aside from the natural sugar in the fruit, it is virtually sugar free….making it 0 WW points! Of course if you add alcohol you’ll end up with a 4-5 point cocktail, but it totally beats those high-calorie sugary drinks they serve in restaurants and bars. Plus, if you’re picky like me and you’re not a big fan of fruit, this is a good way to sneak it into your diet. 🙂

Tropical Fruit Slush
1 cup frozen mixed fruit (I use peaches, strawberries, pineapples & mangoes)
6-8 ice cubes
1 packet Kool-Aid Sugar Free drink mix, Lemon Berry
4 oz. water
4 oz. diet lemon-lime soda (Sprite Zero)
2 oz. Rum or Vodka (optional)

Mix the Kool-Aid drink mix with the water and add to blender. Add all other ingredients to blender and blend until smooth.
