Pomegranate Lemon Slushie

Pomegranate Lemon Slushie

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 šŸ˜‰

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