Conscious Cravings: Satisfying Slushies
Phew. It’s a hot one. Is it just me or does it feel like the sun is a little closer to the Earth right now? What I wouldn't do for a refreshing drink!
Friends, I have some treats for you.
There is nothing quite like a frozen, fruity drink. I remember going to the 7/11 when I was a kid getting a BIG giant slurpee. I don’t remember my first frozen drink with rum, but I bet it was equally as refreshing. Now, far removed from that sugar brimmed daiquiri, I do love some summer flavored, light and refreshing frozen drinks. My goal is always to ENJOY life & treats, but keep my goals in focus. It's easy to go overboard with slushies & totally blow out your goals, leaving you feeling bloated and over-served.
Try these slushers for a refreshing summer cool down. You don't have to add the booze to the Energize Slusher
Elevated Energize Slusher
1 cup water
1 cup ice
1 scoop BB Performance Lemon Energize
½ cup mango (fresh or frozen)
Place water, ice, Energize, and mango in the blender; cover and blend until smooth.
Add 2 oz vodka (I like lemon flavored vodka too)
White Claw Slusher
1 can Lemon White Claw
1 ½ cup frozen strawberries
1 ½ cup ice
1 TBSP honey
1 lemon squeezed
2 oz white rum
Come all ingredients in a blender and blend until combined. Serve immediately. Adjust for sweetness as needed.
Want the non-alcoholic version of this delight?
Hold the White Claw and vodka and replace with seltzer, lemon seltzer like LaCroix lemon or for an even sweeter taste, LaCroix LimoCello.
Want to kick it up a little more? ADD ENERGIZE.
Add a scoop of BB Performance Lemon Energize to this one too!
No matter the occasion, no matter your goal, there is a refreshing drink for you.
What refreshing drink are you enjoying on these hot June days?
