Easy Homemade Frozen Lemonade
Slushies are a summertime staple when the temperatures are in the high 90s each day! We have some favorite ways to stay cool during the summer including our favorites:
- Hanging out at the neighborhood pool
- Playing in the kiddie pool at home
- Playing kids sprinkler games
- Water balloons
- Playing in the water table
- Washing the car
- Making homemade ice pops
Frozen lemonade and fruit slushies are our newest love. The kids discovered shaved ice during baseball this year and it's developed into wanting to try slushies everywhere we can find them.
There's just something about lemonade that screams summer to me so we drink a lot of it! Tampico's Old Fashioned Lemonade with Lime is the perfect ingredient for making an easy lemonade slushie! Check out just how easy it is to keep it cool with help from Old Fashioned Lemonade with Lime!
