Hi there Lil’Luna fans! It’s Gina from Kleinworth & Co & I’m back today to share a recipe for one of my all time favorite treats…the Slurpee.
Growing up (& still to this day) it’s the one treat I never turn down. If we stop to fill up the truck at the gas station, I have to have one. If it’s a hot summer day & we are stopping in to pick up water- I have to have one then too. The pattern here is that there really is never a time when I don’t pick one up if we are at the gas station. They are the epitome of fun times in my book, always put a smile on my face & I can’t get enough.
Since my favorite flavor is cherry (for all things) I decided that it would be my flavor of choice for this Homemade Slurpee today. It’s so simple to make & taste just like the original. Which is both good & bad for me. It’s good because I can have them whenever the mood strikes, but bad because having the ability to have one all the time can’t be good for me. But they taste so good, are cool & refreshing & I love them so much.
Check out just how easy these are to make!

- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 tsp cherry Kool-Aid drink mix
- 1/2 tsp maraschino cherry juice
- 2 cups crushed ice
