FAQS

  • ice cubes
  • simple syrup for flavor
  • fruit such as frozen or fresh peaches, mango, cherries, or any type of berry
  • juice such as apple, lemon juice, pineapple juice, grape, and orange juice
  • milk or heavy whipping cream
  • almond milk, coconut milk, or coconut cream
  • Add any liquid first, then larger frozen ingredients. 
  • You’ll need a blender powerful enough to chop through frozen fruit and ice. Always start the blender on a low speed then slowly turn it up.
  • Don’t over-blend ingredients. Otherwise, you’ll go from a nice slush to a runny syrupy drink.
  • Make popsicles or slushies! Pour leftovers into molds or:
    • Pour the drink into one bag and add the ice and salt into the second bag.
    • Insert the drink bag into the ice bag. 
    • Shake the bags for several minutes until the drink becomes a slush.
  • Fruit. Easily use the same fruit that is in the drink as a garnish.
    • Fruits like lemon wedges, lime wedges, and peach slices can be slipped over the edge of the glass.
    • Thread small chunks of fruit on a toothpick or place it directly on top of the drink itself.
    • Top with the classic maraschino cherry and fresh mint leaves.
  • Sugar the rim. Fill a bowl of lemon or lime juice and a bowl of sugar. Dip the rim of the glass in the juice, then into the sugar. Let dry. 
  • Add a dollop of Whipped Cream or a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream. Eat it right off the top or mix it into the drink to add a creamy element. 
  • Add a fun straw or spoon to the cup.

    I’ve already used the fruit smoothie recipe. It was a hit and I’m excited to be making more the summer. Aside from the recipes I do have to say I was super happy to see how too to add sugar to the rim of the glass. I always love when restaurants do that and now I can do it at home
