You deserve it! It’s time to relax with this delicious and refreshing Raspberry Acai Slush!
It’s not too often that I get to spend a night with my girlfriends. We usually sneak in a dinner here, a movie there, or combo up a walk with catching up on each other’s lives. Life is busy people. I’m sure I’m not alone in this.
A girls’ night in is really a dream for me and one I need to make a reality…like, soon. A night with no kiddos to referee, no husbands to take care of, no stress. Doesn’t that sound awesome???
I love easy, carefree entertaining and this slush is definitely that. You can totally mix it up ahead of time and freeze. If you make it with alcohol, it won’t freeze completely so you can take it out right as the party begins. Making it without? Just remember to take it out about 20 minutes before you expect your guests to arrive.
I made my slush with lemon-lime soda but ginger ale or club soda would be perfect as well. I think the presentation is really where it’s at with girls so I like to serve the slush with frozen raspberries and strawberries and little umbrellas if you have them.
I like to serve a combination of sweet treats and healthy eats at our get togethers. I think it’s important to have variety and especially important to have food that feels like an indulgence – but isn’t. Kind of like this slush. Made with Trop50 Raspberry Acai juice, it has half the sugar and calories and NO artificial sweeteners. Plus, it’s pretty much the most amazing drink I’ve tasted in a long time. #newlove
I think a good menu for a girls’ night in would look a little something like this…
On the healthier side – Veggie Crescent Bites, Mojito Fruit Salad, and Balsamic Watermelon Salad. And for a little indulgence – Lemon Meringue Cookie Cups, Cherry Fluff, and Chocolate Chip Caramel Cookie Bars. All would go awesome with this Raspberry Acai Slush!

Remember that it is not safe to store them in the garage.
Always remember that the pleasures you get from any experience is not worth your life.
While stoves and ovens rely on electricity or natural gas to operate and outdoor grills use propane, natural gas, or
charcoal, solar ovens don’t need anything to work other than the natural heat generated by the sun.
