Lime Slush

Printable Recipe

Combine in a large sauce pan:
4 cups water
4 cups sugar

Bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.

In a large 2-3 gallon container, mix:

1 small package lime jello
juice of two lemons
juice of two limes
7 cups cold water
1 large can (~48 oz.) pineapple juice

Add cooled, sugar water. Stir it all together and freeze. (A big plastic bowl works well for this.)

Every 8 hours, mash the mixture with a potato masher. Do this for several days, until the mixture is frozen, but slushy.

The key to this is mashing it for several days. The more you mash it, the fluffier it gets. You get more slush and more volume.

To use:
Mix 1 part slush with 1 part Sprite (lemon/lime soda).

We fill a 2 quart pitcher with slush and mix it with 1 liter of soda.

This recipe should make at least 4 large punch bowls (2 qt pitcher to 1 liter of soda).

Holly’s Note:
This is perfect for entertaining, especially church functions or receptions.
