2 1/2cupscrushed iceI use one tray of ice or about 15 ice cubes **Next time we are by Sonic I am going to buy a bag of their ice and see if it makes these homemade slushes more Sonic-like
Optional: About 3 teaspoons Nerds candyOr 1 teaspoon per cup of slush
In blender crush ice and set aside.
On puree setting mix together Kool-Aid, sugar and 1 cup soda water for about 30 seconds (or until all sugar is dissolved).
Add in crushed ice and puree for about 15 more seconds. Don't puree too long or it will become more of a juice than a slush.
Add second cup of soda water and puree again for about 15-20 more seconds.
Pour into cups and put in freezer for 30 minutes-1 hour. *** You can skip this step for younger kids or if you are really, REALLY craving a slush. Putting it in the freezer just solidifies it a bit more. The longer it's in the more Sonic-like it becomes.
