Summertime Slush
This healthy recipe comes from NDSU Extension Service.


3-ounce package strawberry or raspberry gelatin (sugar-free)
1 c. boiling water
3 c. cold water
2 c. cranberry juice cocktail
1 (12-ounce) can frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
1 (12-ounce) can frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
2 quarts lemon-lime soda pop (diet or regular)


Dissolve gelatin in boiling water in small bowl. In a nonmetal freezer container (such as an ice cream bucket), combine dissolved gelatin with remaining ingredients except carbonated beverage; cover. Freeze about eight hours or until it reaches a slush consistency. To serve, allow to stand at room temperature about 30 minutes and spoon about 1/2 cup slush mixture into serving glass and fill with lemon-lime soda.


Makes about 20 servings.

When made with sugar-free gelatin and diet soda, a serving (about 1 cup) contains about 90 calories, 19 grams (g) of carbohydrate, no fat or protein and 60 percent of the daily recommendation for vitamin C. When made with “regular” products, each serving has 130 calories and 32 g of carbohydrate. The remaining nutrition facts stay the same.
