Mango Pineapple Slushie

The kids are going back to school.  They are.  I love them. I adore them. I’m really ready for them to be back in school. I have almost zero time to myself for the whole summer, and while that has it’s ups, it also takes its toll on me. I’m ready to do a few things to treat myself- like get a pedicure, maybe get some highlights in my apparently-naturally-dark-brown-hair and pick up a few things to treat myself at Target. This mango pineapple slushie will be just the thing I indulge in after I make some time to head to my local store and pick up a few boxes of Fruttare treats. I’ll use a few for a fab fruity slushie for me and save the rest for the family…Thanks to Lunchbox for sponsoring today’s Mango Pineapple Slushie recipe.

  • I love combining fruit juices - the combinations if the fruit juices can be quite tasty. I'm going to have to try this Mango Pineapple Slushie. It looks like it would be a great fruit juice combo - and making it into a slushie makes it that much better. Thanks for the recipe.
