Blueberry Sunset Slushie

Blueberry Sunset Slushie 01

Slushies are kinda disgusting…completely gross. They’re loaded with so much sugar and artificial colouring. But you know…some people like them. They’re too sweet for me, but on a warm day I can see how they’d be remotely appealing. So I decided to upgrade the low life slushie to something actually nutritious and still really tasty. This is extremely kid-friendly…and it’s great for us who pretend not to like sugar in advancement of our health. Yah, I admit it. I love the taste of sugar. Confession time is over…

Oh, and just so you know, this recipe is still a little high in natural sugars (which are actually good for you), but it’s a good idea to balance this drink with a small protein snack to keep your blood sugars more stable. My excuse for protein with this drink was PB & J, which is probably pretty pathetic since the amount of PB on my toast was insignificant. Whatever. I give you permission to drink this any way you wish. It serves one, so double it up if you feel like sharing.

Blueberry Sunset Slushie

  1. 1 orange, peeled*
  2. 1 tbsp. agave nectar
  3. 1/3 cup frozen blueberries
  4. 2 tsp. maple syrup
  5. 6 ice cubes

*I left a bit of the white pith on the orange. This pith contains bioflavonoids which are great for you!

Blend the orange, agave, and 3 ice-cubes together. Set aside in a cup. Whirl up the blueberries, syrup, and the rest of the ice together. Now layer the orange and blueberry mixture together in a pretty glass. Add a straw and pretend you’re in the Bahamas.

Today: Something special is up today. I’m off to participate in a floor hockey tournament all day today, which should be fun. I have to say though, it’s retarded to get up like at 5:00 a.m. in order to get to the gym in time. I worked out hard the last couple days so I’m feeling really sore…hopefully I’ll get in the groove really quickly. Wish me luck!

Is there some sinful recipe that you`d like to see me try to make a healthy version of?

    I’m contemplating buying a blender for the office so I can make slushies at work. I saw some golden raspberries today in the supermarket .. have you ever tried them?

    This is awesome! I love that you made a healthy slushie. This will be especially fabulous in the summer. Well done!

    Eugene~ No, I haven’t even seen them before. I’d love to try them though. If you get to try them before me, shout out and let me know what you think.

    Stephanie~ Thanks, I imagine once summer actually makes it’s way here I’ll be overloading this site with smoothie/slushie recipes. I’m such a blender crazed human.
