As Seen on TV…or, As Seen in My Kitchen!
My kid has been begging for a Slushy Magic (the As Seen on TV Slushy maker, GHM store link). I do not want an overpriced poorly reviewed ASOT piece o’crap cluttering up my kitchen. Fortunately, for SBW, the electric company sent tree trimmers over today. So, to buy off my four year-old from standing under the trees as they were being cut, I brushed off my Super Mom cape and found a way to make slushies.
I pulled out the trusty Kitchen Aid mixer and put on the ice cream making bowl and attachments. We poured in Sprite and a few drops of blue food coloring then let it spin on a low speed for a couple of minutes. Voila! Slushies!
From reading other reviews I think this was a good way to go about making slushies at home because:
- I did not blow $30
- No messy baggies or salt
- No exploding slushies (‘ya know, from shaking the carbonated drinks)
- Finally, another use for that ice cream making attachment! Kitchen Aid accessories are not cheap, I hate it when they collect dust.
I feel like I should have earned a badge or something.
