These Cherry Slushies are refreshing and make for a festive Canada day long weekend drink. I like to spoil my family and friends with these whenever they come over But that is only if they help me with the picking because that is a lot of work.

CHERRY SLUSHIES

Summer is right around the corner and that means fresh fruit!

Though I love all the four seasons we have here in Canada, I truly love Summer most of all. 

And that is because the food is just that much better since it’s all fresh and mostly local!

I truly believe we all play a part in aiding in that. So the more we can by local and organic foods the better the food will be for all of us for generations to come. 

Don’t you agree?

CHERRY SLUSHIES

I like to make these Cherry Slushies every year, along with Homemade Cherry Pudding Cherry Galette . Red Velvet Parfaits. Pretty much anything that calls for cherries in it. 

This recipe was inspired by one of my favorite holidays “Canada Day ” so here is to you Canada.  

Happy Birthday Canada!

Don’t they look delicious?

HOW TO MAKE CHERRY SLUSHIE

  • All you will need to make these healthy and fruity slushies are some fresh or frozen cherries, frozen concentrated cranberry juice, fresh mint leaves and sprite. 

Just keep in mind you that if you are using frozen cherries then you will omit the ice cubes which will save yourself time on the pitting part. But if you can get fresh cherries, why not use them. 

DO CHERRY SLUSHIES HAVE CAFFEINE

Not these slushies, however if your making it with say a soda stream and that syrup then it might.

If you have one of those soda streams you can replace the sprite with one of those beverages too. 

The mint gives it that something extra special, so be sure not to skip on it.

I hope you enjoy this delicious Slushie! Bonne Fete Canada 🙂
