With so many Jell-O colors and flavors available, you can make these any color you want. Since the Fourth of July is just around the corner, I made these fun drinks in red and blue. But, it would be fun to have one of every color at a kid’s birthday party.

Are you ready to make this Ice Cream Slush? Let’s make sure you have all of the ingredients…


  • Jell-O mix – any flavor/color you like – small package
  • cold water – the Jell-O mix will not dissolve completely, but it will mostly dissolve. It will leave some of the granular texture
  • crushed ice – you can crush ice in a blender to make is super-fine
  • vanilla ice cream – ice cream makes this drink a creamy slush. I love Tasty Freeze at Dairy Queen. This kind of reminds me of that
  • marshmallow creme fluff – this really helps to bind this drink and adds another layer of creaminess

How do you make Slushies with Ice Cream?

Expert Tip

Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to the top of individual slushies for an added delicious factor and more summertime fun

Add ice cream a little at a time. As it blends in, add more

How do you make a Slushie in a Blender?

Blend ice until super fine and resembles snow. Add a liquid flavor that is usually a flavor packet of some kind like kool-aid or Jell-O that has been mixed with water, and add granulated sugar

What flavors a slushy?

The concentrated slushy liquid is found at most grocery stores during summertime. If you can’t find that, then mix a kool-aid packet with water and sugar or Jell-O with water and sugar

What is the most favorite slushy flavor?

In my experience most kids prefer the blue raspberry flavor first, Next is a cherry flavor, and then a Coca-Cola or other dark soda flavor

Make Ahead and Storage

Slushies are best served right away. Once frozen, they never return to their fresh state. They are either too frozen or melted and the flavor is never really the same

Storing Slushies: If you must store your slush, then cover it and freeze it

Thaw at room temperature until there is enough liquid to make it easy to eat with a spoon or slurp with a straw

Serving Size

This slushie recipe makes two large glasses of slush or 4 small cups of slush

    I want to make this but I have a question about the recipe. The last step says “add the fluff” what is the fulff?

    1. Melissa Haines

      Oh no! You are right. That ingredient must have been deleted when I updated the post. It’s marshmallow fluff, but I need to go back in my records to see how much. I will update ASAP

      1. Melissa Haines

        OK – I found an older version of the post and it had the measurements. I have added “the fluff” back into the recipe. Thank you so much for pointing that out. I would have never known, otherwise.
