Cuisinart Slushie Maker!

Have you seen this Cuisinart Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream & Sorbet Maker at Costco? 
I heard it was awesome, so this summer we HAD to try it out!
 I was so excited to try it out and as I flipped through the recipe booklet, I saw this:

*You do have to actually freeze the mixing bowl, so make sure you do that ahead of time.*
Start by getting your frozen bowl out of the freezer and putting it on the machine.
Then put the top on and turn on the machine.
Next, add about 4 cups of cola or other soda, lemonade, cranberry juice, white grape juice, or Kool-Aid.
 This time we tried Ruby Red Squirt and it can hold up to 2 cans.
You let the machine do it’s thing for 15-20 minutes and…..presto!  You have a perfectly textured slushie!
 Not too runny or to crunchy….just right!
 Yup, it was definitely a hit!
It does say to not use “sugar-free” products, but I’m not sure why.
So far we’ve tried: Lemonade, Root Beer, and Ruby Red Squirt.

  1. We have one of these…fun fun fun!! Lemonade is yummy in it as is SunnyD (one of my kids favorites) we used diet pop in it a couple of times and it froze hard to the sides and was just wierd…not sure why…but that’s what happened

  2. We got one of these as a wedding present 7 years ago. This year we’ve been experimenting with frozen yogurt, so far with pretty excellent results. I don’t know how much the machine costs, but I bet it’s worth every penny!
