Refreshing 2-Ingredient Lemon Slushies Recipe: Summer Sippin' Granita Style by 30Seconds Food
Lemon just may be the official fruit and flavor of summer. This easy lemon slushie recipe has two ingredients (plus water and ice!) and can be made creamy or like a granita. Spoon or straw? That's the question you'll need to answer after making this refreshing two-ingredient lemon slushie this summer.
To make this lemon slushie recipe you'll need granulated sugar, lemon juice, water and ice. Make the simple syrup first by cooking water and sugar together on the stovetop. Let it cool, then blend with lemon juice (fresh is best!) and ice. You can also make a creamier slushie (see Recipe Notes), more like a smoothie.
While we love lemonade, these icy slushies are a refreshing change of pace. Serve them at your next get-together or pool party!
