1/4
cup bright blue sports drink (such as Gatorade™ G2 blueberry-pomegranate thirst quencher)

Directions

  • 1 Blue Layer: Place all blue layer ingredients EXCEPT VODKA into a blender pitcher. Pulse to chop ice, then puree until mixture is smooth. Add vodka and blend until mixed in. Fill glasses 1/3 full of blue mixture and place glasses in freezer for 10 minutes, or until set and you're able to add the next layer without the colors mixing.
  • 2 White Layer: Place all white layer ingredients EXCEPT VODKA into a clean blender pitcher. Pulse to chop ice, then puree until mixture is smooth. Add vodka and blend until mixed in. Remove glasses from freezer and fill to 2/3 high with the white mixture, so now the blue is 1/3 and the white is another 1/3 of the glass. TIP: Pour white layer slowly over the back of a spoon onto the blue layer to keep the colors from mixing. Return glasses to freezer for 10 minutes, or until set and you're able to add the next layer without the colors mixing.
  • 3 Red Layer: Place all white layer ingredients EXCEPT VODKA into a clean blender pitcher. Pulse to chop ice, then puree until mixture is smooth. Add vodka and blend until mixed in. Remove glasses from freezer and fill to the brim with the red mixture. TIP: Pour red layer slowly over the back of a spoon onto the white layer to keep the colors from mixing. Return glasses to freezer for 10 minutes.
  • 4 To Serve: Remove glasses from freezer and garnish with whipped cream, berries, sprinkles and decorative straws, if desired. Serve immediately!

Step By Step  

4th of July Super Slushies

As prepared by tbspSusan,

Boozy red, white and blue-sy slushies are the perfect companion to a great fireworks show.


These slushies are the bomb -- really, don't they look like bomb pops in a glass? Blend these up and serve 'em as a prelude to the fireworks show.

They're easy! Here's how ya do it:

 

Ingredients for blue slushies layer.

Blue layer: Yoplait-Light Blueberry Patch yogurt, ice, blue sports drink, some food coloring if ya want, and --ahem-- the "sparklers" of the drink (marshmallow-flavored vodka).

 

4th of July slushies blue layer.

Blend all that stuff up except the vodka until it's nice and smooth. Then add the vodka and pulse a couple times in the blender. Pour it 1/3 the way up in clear glasses and place 'em in the freezer so the blue layer sets up before you lay on the white.

 

Ingredients for slushies white layer.

White layer: Yoplait Greek yogurt, ice, water, sweetened-condensed milk and vodka. Easy!

 

4th of July slushies white layer.

Blend it all except the vodka until it's white and smooth. Add the vodka and pulse in the blender a couple times to mix it in. Pour it up to the 2/3 level on your glasses and put them back in the freezer again.

 

Ingredients for slushies red layer.

Red layer: Gettin' the hang of it? So, do the same thing but with red stuff, like fresh strawberries and Yoplait-Light Strawberry yogurt. Blend all that together like before, adding the vodka in at the very end.

 

4th of July smoothies red layer.

Pour it right up to the tippy-top of your glasses and put them back into the freezer for 10 minutes so they set up a bit before serving.

Done! Take 'em out and serve 'em up.

 

Add whipped cream and sprinkles to smoothies.

Add whipped cream, sprinkles, fun straws or whatever your li'l patriotic heart leads you to plop on top.


Happy 4th!

Tips  

I used Fluffy Marshmallow flavored vodka in this recipe, but any flavored vodka will work -- cake, gummy, blueberry, strawberry, etc. Choose your fave! 2) Adjust vodka amounts according to your taste. Using two ounces vodka in each layer results in roughly one ounce per drink. I used one ounce per layer for a more subtle inclusion.

To make these drinks non-alcoholic, simply omit the vodka in the recipe. Serve immediately after pouring the final red layer on the top. (Alcohol keeps the slushies from freezing completely, but they will freeze more quickly and solid without alcohol in them.)
