Homemade Slushies with Ice Cream

July is National Ice Cream Month and what better way to celebrate than with…well…Ice Cream, it’s the perfect time to stock up! And even better – let’s treat the family to these easy to make Ice Cream Slushies!

We all love to go to our local Ice Cream Shop, but let’s face it, it can be expensive for our whole family to go. We can easily spend close to $20. So many years ago, I began looking for fun ways to make treats at home. These Homemade Slushies have been a favorite with the boys for years.

Ice Cream Treats at Home

Enjoying a fun evening at home doesn’t need to take a lot of time or money. During the Summer, when it’s too hot to be outside, it’s fun to pull out the board games, and spend time together. To make it super easy, we enjoyed Klondike Bars, Popsicles and the Slushies with Ice Cream. We found all the Unilever Ice Cream brands at our local Jewel-Osco, you can also find them at Albertsons, Safeway, Vons, Pavilions,  ACME and Shaws.

How to make Slushies with Ice Cream

For the Slushies with Ice Cream, you will need water, ice, sugar, flavoring (I used flavored syrup) and ice cream. The new Magnum Tubs have a hard shell of chocolate that you crack with a spoon and then enjoy with the ice cream.

Add chocolate coating to slush

After the water, ice, sugar and flavoring are well blended, it’s time to add the ice cream. For more flavor, I added the white chocolate shards to the slushies.

Then it’s time to add 2-3 scoops of ice cream. The flavor combinations are endless!
