Picture this – the sun is scorching outside, and you’ve just finished a tough workout. You’re hot, you’re sweaty, and you need a refresher. What could possibly quench your thirst and revitalize you better than Gatorade Slushies?
These icy treats combine the electrolyte-replenishing power of Gatorade with the fun and satisfying chill of a slushy, creating the perfect post-workout pick-me-up.
Not only do they taste great, but they’re also designed to replenish what you lose when you exercise, making your recovery both delicious and effective. So, why settle for plain, old sports drinks when you could freeze your Gatorade into a frosty slushy?
Whether you’re a serious athlete with intense workouts or someone just looking for a unique way to cool off, Gatorade Slushies are a game-changer.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I use Gatorade zero?
You can certainly use Gatorade zero or any variety of Gatorade you’d like.
What if I can’t find the giant buckets like you found?
If you can’t find the same giant solo cups I found, Dollar Tree has several other buckets that would work. They even have round large buckets with handles that would work well too. You could also use smaller buckets like sand buckets.
What is the best flavor of Gatorade?
The best Gatorade flavor will entirely depend on your personal preference. My personal favorite is the Blue Gatorade (any of them really).
How can I make my slushy less watery?
If you want to make your slushie more flavorable (and less watery) you can pour some of your Gatorade into an ice cube tray and freeze it. Then use those as the ice cubes and make the rest of the recipe as written.
Ingredients Needed to Make A Gatorade Slushie:
Reasons Why We Love This Recipe:
- It is easy and inexpensive to make (less than $3!)
- They are tasty
- You can customize the taste using any flavor of Gatorade
- The perfect way to cool down on a hot day
- No messy cleanup
- The whole family will enjoy making their own slushie and eating it
- The sugar is very helpful in keeping the ice from seizing up. You don’t want that as it’s about impossible to drink that way. The sugar keeps the ice smooth, making it a perfect slushie.
- You can use a sugar substitute, but go for granulated options if possible.
- These cannot be made in advance and stored as they will clump together and it won’t be easy (or tasty) to drink.
