Hand Juiced Orange and Lemon Slushies

Share this!

My kiddos are always wanting frozen margaritas when we get them at restaurants.  They would hate the taste, even without the tequila.  This is our solution!  The hand juiced orange and lemon slushies were created tween style!  It was a Thursday afternoon that started the first springtime three day weekend and as usual, we had a house filled with giggling girls.  They wanted to make something and based on what was in the fruit basket, this is what we create.

We used the following ingredients:

  • 3 LARGE Oranges
  • 1 Lemon
  • 1 C Sugar
  • 4 C Crushed Ice
  • Mandarin Oranges for Decorations

I find that when working with the kiddos, it is best if they each have a specific job.  Mallory was the juicer.

Ally added the sugar to the juice and mixed it up, removing and seeds.

Jordan poured it over the crushed ice in the blender and blended it.

I put it in the mason jars and added the straws and decorative mandarins.
