2-Ingredient Lemon Slushies Recipe Two Ways: Will It Be Creamy Lemon Slushies or Granita Style?

Lemon just may be the official fruit and flavor of summer. This easy lemon slushie recipe has two ingredients and can be made creamy or like a granita. Spoon or straw, that's the question.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 2

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • 5 cups ice
  • fresh mint, for garnish (optional)

Here's how to make it:

  1. To make the simple syrup, combine the sugar and water in a saucepot. Bring to a simmer and cook until sugar dissolves, about 2 minutes. Cool completely.
  2. To make a granita-style slushie, put the simple syrup, lemon juice and ice in a blender. Pulse until combined but it still has texture and small pieces of ice. Pour into two glasses and serve with spoons and straws.
  3. To make creamy slushies, put the ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Pour into glasses and serve with straws. Garnish with mint, if desired.
