Mixed Berry & Mint Slushies

Mixed Berry & Mint Slushies - fun summer treat


We just got back from the best vacation in Costa Rica.  We spent the last 2 weeks there, and it was so incredible.  For the first week, we were in a rented house near Manuel Antonio with family.  This year is my in-laws 45th wedding anniversary, and instead of a big party they wanted to take us, and my SIL’s family on a trip.  We zip-lined, toured rainforests, repelled down waterfalls, went snorkeling, and saw tons of wild life.  The second half of our trip was just the 3 of us in the Southern part of the country, in an area called Corcovado.  That was much more remote and definitely a different experience.  It is so good to be back, but that is a trip we will remember for a life time!  I can not wait to share it all with you in “Thursday Things” over the next month, or as soon as I can get through all our pictures!

Now that we are back though, it is time to start cooking again.  It was so nice to not cook and have a break for 2 weeks.  I am easing into it though with slushies.  It is almost like we are back on vacation!  Just add an umbrella and you have a refreshing and beach appropriate drink 🙂  I did leave the alcohol out of this version, because I was just making it for my 9 year old and myself.  But adding a little gin makes this a fun cocktail.  It is almost August, so it is time to cram all the summer we can into these last few weeks, and slushies definitely fit into that category.

Mixed Berry & Mint Slushies - a grown up and kid version!

I was looking through my  latest issue of Cooking Light, and my 9 year old was looking over my shoulder.  As soon as I flipped to the page with this recipe, he asked if I could make it.  I have been trying to get him more involved in the kitchen this summer, so I knew we would be making this mixed berry slushie very soon.  I just happen to have a few mint leaves sitting my in fridge, so we actually went to work and made it the same day.  So refreshing, and the mint gives it that little something extra.  You can definitely switch it up for what berries you want to use.  All blueberries, only strawberries, whatever.  I just happen to have a bag of frozen mixed berries in the freezer at the time.
