My Latest Craving {lime slushies}

There's something about slushies that appeals to me during the summer. I know it's not the large amounts of dye or the overload of sugar; so maybe it's the idea of an icy treat during the heat. I recently was playing around with making a healthy version, and my lime slushie creation was quite a hit with the kids. A treat that has no sugar, lots of vitamin C, and leaves you feeling refreshed- that's definitely something worth craving.


Sugar-free Lime Slushies
  • juice of 4 limes
  • 2 cups of ice
  • 3 pinches of pure Stevia
  • mint for garnish
Blend the first three ingredients in a high-powered blender until the constancy of a slushie is achieved. Garnish with mint and enjoy. (Do this when you need your kid's attention; because as soon as you sit back, relax, and look comfortable, you'll have them all over you like flies to garbage.)


So what's your favorite summer treat?


  1. Love this!! What a great idea...definitely going to try this in our house! Thanks for sharing :)

  2. We needed an activity for a rainy afternoon and this was just the thing! We ALL enjoyed it! I didn't have any stevia, so I added about 1 TBSP of honey and it worked out just fine! Aisling couldn't get enough of it!


Don't be shy, share your thoughts!
