Apple Carrot Slushee

This was breakfast this morning! It is my own version of an ICEE from the gas station. It has no added sugar and it has a serving (or maybe several servings) of veggies in each glass. This is perfect for hot summer days and the kids will love it!
Apple Carrot Slushee
6 large carrots, washed
2 large apples, washed and quartered
8 large cubes ice (give or take)

Juice apples and carrots in a juicer. Blend juice with ice in blender.

I love this recipe because it combines fruits & veggies with water (in ice form, obviously!) We all know how important it is to eat our fruits & veggies, but we often don't drink enough plain old water! Water is especially crucial during these hot summer months. So sit back in your lawn chair and drink a tall glass of this delicious slushee!

Don't be afraid to mix and match different fruit and veggies, too. Try using your favorite combination or let your kids go crazy and make up their own concoction! Enjoy.
