Cool down in the summer heat with this Copy Cat Sonic LemonBerry Slush.
If you have been reading Tastefully Frugal for any time you know by now that I love making copy cat recipes. Whether it’s Chick-Fil-A Sandwiches or my favorite Chili’s Honey Chipotle Chicken Crispers, I love taking my favorite restaurant meals and treats and turning them into make at home favorites.
Now that it’s getting hot outside my cravings for Sonic Slushes have gone from a few times a month to a few times a week. Which wouldn’t be too bad if I could hit their happy hour between 2-4pm; but that’s usually when the boys are napping. Plus when I was looking into making slushes at home I found out that Sonic puts 5 pounds of sugar in every one gallon of water to make their slushes… FIVE POUNDS!! No wonder they taste so good; you’re basically drinking straight sugar with a little bit of ice.
Our favorite slushes to get when we go are the real fruit slushes because they have less artificial colors; which make my boys crazy! My favorite being the Lemon Berry; a mix of strawberries and lemons with shredded ice…aah the perfect way to cool down on a hot summer day! So of course I had to try to make these at home so whenever the craving struck I could indulge myself. They are so easy to make and you can adjust the amount of lemons and/or strawberries to suit your taste buds. The version I made tastes JUST like the real version too! So if you’ve got 2 minutes and a blender you’ll definitely want to give this recipe a try!
