I was going to bust a food myth here today, but after making this yesterday I couldn’t wait to share it with you. So the food myth must wait!
The soft texture of this frosty drink is reminiscent of a 7-11 Slurpee, but the taste (and all-natural ingredients) are far better. It’s a little on the tart side, but sweet enough to satisfy a sweet tooth – and it makes a great thirst-quencher. Or, spike it with a little vodka for a perfect winter cocktail.
If you live in a place where the weather’s already turned cold – make this slushie anyway. Just have a cup of hot tea standing by 😉
Pomegranate Lemon Slushie
Serves: 2 servings
- 1 cup Pomegranate juice
- ¼ cup lemon juice
- 2 Tbsp agave nectar or apple juice concentrate
- 8-10 ice cubes
- Combine all ingredients in a high-powered blender and pulse until ice is crushed.
- Blend on high until slushie is smooth and free of ice chunks.
- Taste for sweetness, and sweeten a little more if desired.
- Serve immediately.
Spike with vodka for a perfect winter cocktail!

Wow, this look perfect right now! I love that it’s tart, I like my lemonade to pack a punch 🙂 So…how did you get juice from your pomegranates? Or did you buy the juice somewhere?

Hi Karen – I just bought 100% Pomegranate juice from the store – the lazy woman’s route 🙂

Despite the cold, I have been craving something sweet and cold. This sounds so perfect and easy!

In my opinion it’s never too cold for sweet frozen desserts 😉
