Eryn is a homeschooling mom of two kids that are FAR better behaved than she deserves. You can find her crafting, homeschooling & cooking escapades at her blog, Hearth to Heart or you can find her tweeting snarky things she should probably regret in the morning on Twitter as @Leighbra.
Chemo takes a lot of things from you. Your energy, your hair, your appetite. Brandie told me recently that one of the few things she could keep down is Sonic's Slushies. I laughed, because immediately after a dental surgery last month, all that existed to me in the world was Sonic Drive-In. My hero husband drove two towns over to get me to one.
This is a recipe that allows you to get your slushie fix, without putting on pants. The recipe is open to interpretation; you can add sugar, change up the juices, add fresh fruit. You are the boss of this recipe.
In a blender, pour:
- 1 can lemon-lime soda
- 2 cups 100% cherry juice (in this case, Cherry Pomegranate)
- HALF a packet of Cherry Kool-Aid
- 1/3rd a cup of Splenda OR alternatively 1/4 cup of sugar. Modify to taste.
Fill blender 4/5ths of the way with ice
Blend until desired consistency
This recipe makes about 4 servings, because Brandie is a mama & no mama can enjoy homemade slushies with pesky kids giving her the "Where's mine?" face.
If a little vodka somehow sneaks into your recipe, who are we to judge?
Feel better, Brandie. Know that you're loved & we're all thinking about you. And Sonic. We're all thinking about you & Sonic.
