I had bought several different flavors of Kool-Aid for a fun day of slushies.

Out of all of the flavor packets, blue was the most requested. They didn’t care which flavor, but they wanted it blue.

Go figure. Luckily there are a lot of blue choices in the Kool-Aid section.

Are you ready to make this fun Kool-Aid Slushie? Let’s make sure you have everything you’ll need

making kool-aid slushies


  • water – it should be cold water. You don’t want your ice to melt and end up with a melted and warm slush
  • Kool-Aid drink packet (any flavor) – As I said before, any flavor will do but the most requested “color” from my kids is always blue
  • Ice – This recipe uses a lot of ice. I always just grab a bag of ice from the grocery store or the gas station. But, did you know you can get bags of ice from the McDonald’s Drive-through? Someone recently told me that. I haven’t tried it yet, but I thought I’d share that information
  • sugar – granulated sugar for this recipe

Special Equipment:

For this frozen Kool-Aid drink, you’ll want to have a blender on hand to blend this recipe. If you don’t have a big blender then, you can always use those small portable blenders, but you’ll need to divide the ingredients to fit them in. I just recently bought a Ninja Blender (the bottom of the line) at Target. I’ll include an Amazon link to the one that I use.
