I am going to let you in on a secret today. I am going to give you the tools you need to have your almost-four year old glance at you with a look that says best mom ever. I am going to share with you how you can make those authentic koolaid slushies – at home. We ended up using a bit more syrup, but start slow, it wants to be mixed up!
Make Kool Aid Syrup
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1 package of koolaid
Combine those ingredients and boil to create a syrup (app. 7 minutes here). Cool before adding to the ‘slush’ and enjoy your status as the best mom ever.
Make the ‘Slush’ with the Breville All in One
The Breville all in one is literally all in one it’s an:
- immersion blender
- food processor
- ice crusher/snow cone maker
- smoothie maker
- vegetable chopper
- baby food masher
- cheese grater
- and much, much more
There are fifteen different speeds that were perfect for transforming these two cubes of ice cubes into the perfect slush or snow cone consistency. Making it one of the top things we’re probably going to use in the kitchen over the next few months to make frozen treats. Whether you like them icy, like me, or smooth, for the toddler – the process was quick. I simply put the ice into the All in one, adjusted the speed and pressed the button to activate the blades. Here’s how we did it:
1. Crush the ice. You can choose whether you like it chunky, or fine depending on how long you process the ice.
2. Pour into glasses
3. Top with Syrup (recipe below)
4. Serve and enjoy
Everything you need to do in the kitchen, you can do it with the Breville All in One. It was fast, compact and powerful. It was able to crush ice better than any kitchen tool we’ve used (and we’ve attempted to make a lot of slushies. The compact design where everything is able to attach to the base for storage? Genius. It’s going to be easy to find the attachments we need – because who has time to search for the right attachment?
We’ve partnered up with Breville Canada and over the course of the next few months we’re going to be featuring the capabilities that come with the Breville All in One. I’m going to introduce you to everything that it can do – and share some great recipes along the way.
