How to Make an Icee-Type Drink


Sweet, fruity and cold, the Icee brand of frozen drink appears in convenience stores across the United States. Create a replica of this summer time treat at home with a blender and ice. Making your own Icee-style drink lets you customize the flavors and levels of sugar. Diabetics can even use a sugar substitute equal to the amount of required sugar. Rather than going to your nearest Icee vendor, make your own Icee-style concoction at home.

Things You'll Need

  • Blender
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 package unsweetened drink mix
  • 6 cups ice
  • 3 to 4 serving glasses
  • Combine in a blender 1 cup of sugar, 1 package of unsweetened drink mix and 3 cups of water.

  • Cover and blend on low speed to dissolve the drink mix and sugar.

  • Remove the top and add 6 cups of ice to the blender.

  • Recover and blend the Icee mix on high power until the ice breaks down and the drink reaches a slushy consistency.

  • Pour into three serving glasses for large 16-oz. servings or four glasses for 12-oz. servings.
