Ice Cream Slushies
An ice cream slushie would have been a real treat, but you had to get those at the Crack Seed Center at Ala Moana Shopping Center, and that wasn't on my bus route or my transfer spot. The bright red fruit punch slush from a machine, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, was soooo good! I didn't get to have it very often, so when I did get it, it was very special.

- 1 (12oz) can frozen fruit punch 100% juice or juice beverage concentrate, thawed
- 3 juice cans of ice cubes (4-1/2 to 5 cups)
- 4-5 scoops regular or lowfat vanilla ice cream
Pour fruit punch concentrate into blender. Add ice and blend until smooth. Depending on how powerful your blender is, you may have to blend half a recipe at a time. Using large ice cubes may require you to add a little water to help the blending process. It is important to make sure the juice concentrate is thawed, and not frozen. The blender needs enough liquid to blend up the ice cubes.
Pour into cups or glasses. Top each with a scoop of ice cream.
