There is nothing like a cold drink in the summer. Whip up these kid friendly frozen drink recipes for a fun way to beat the heat. They are quick and easy and so good!
Kid Friendly Frozen Drink Recipes
I love laying in the backyard and relaxing with a cool frozen drink during the summer months. Whether you want a smoothie, slushie, slurpee, or even an ice cream float, you need to try one of these frozen drink recipes this summer. There is something for everyone! Even better, these tasty treats are frugal and can be ready in minutes! You probably already have many of these ingredients on hand. I bet you can blend one of these drinks faster than you can go buy a summer drink. Plus, you will save money too!
You need a good blender for these kid friendly frozen drink recipes.
I really like my Vitamix blender. We’ve used it for years and years and it’s held up great. These are not cheap but they are worth every penny. Mine is really old and it’s still going strong. I have no trouble blending anything. It is quite the investment to get one, but it is one investment that won’t disappoint. It will be the last blender you ever had to buy. Amazon has several of them on sale right now for a great price.
Now if a Vitamix isn’t in your budget, then I recommend a Waring professional blender. They are going to get the job done and you can get them for as low as $50. Now they are not as great as a Vitamix, but they are the next best for a much more reasonable cost. Amazon has several Waring blenders on sale right now.
I also use this blender to make this Easy Fruit Smoothie Recipe. We are always making something!
