Copy Cat Sonic Slush with Nerds: Scrumptious Sundays

Copy Cat Sonic Slush

Sydney @ Tastefully Frugal


  • 1 packet Kool-Aid powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 cups soda water
  • 2 1/2 cups crushed ice I 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 candy Or 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.
  • Take out of freezer and pour nerds on top.
  • Add straw and enjoy!
