Ingredients

For the Red Layer:

  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1/4 cup coconut water
  • 1 tablespoon honey (optional)

The White Layer:

  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon honey or agave syrup

For the Blue Layer:

  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen blackberries
  • 1/4 cup coconut water
  • 1 tablespoon honey (optional)

How to Make Red, White, and Blue Berry Coconut Slushies

  1. Prepare the Red Layer: In a blender, combine frozen strawberries, raspberries, coconut water, and honey. Blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into glasses, filling each about one-third of the way, and place them in the freezer to set slightly while you make the next layer.
  2. Make the White Layer: Rinse the blender, then blend ice cubes, coconut milk, and honey until smooth and creamy. Gently pour this over the red layer in the glasses, taking care to not mix the layers. Return glasses to the freezer.
  3. Create the Blue Layer: Rinse the blender again. Blend blueberries, blackberries, coconut water, and honey until smooth. Carefully add this final layer to your glasses.
  4. Serve: Insert a straw and a festive decoration, if desired, and serve immediately for a deliciously patriotic refreshment. Enjoy the burst of berry flavors complemented by the creamy coconut!

Helpful Tips

  • Layering: To keep the layers distinct, ensure each layer is slightly frozen before adding the next. This helps maintain their beautiful separation.
  • Blending: If the slushie mixtures are too thick, add a bit more coconut water to achieve the desired consistency.

Substitutions/Variations

  • Vegan Friendly: Substitute honey with agave syrup or maple syrup to keep it plant-based.
  • Alcoholic Version: Add a splash of rum to each layer for an adult version of this festive treat.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Can I make these ahead of time?
    It’s best to serve these slushies immediately after making, but you can prepare the fruit blends ahead and keep them in the freezer. Just blend again briefly before layering and serving.
  2. How can I make it sweeter?
    Adjust the sweetness by adding more honey or agave syrup to taste, depending on your preference.

Storage Instructions

Freeze any leftover slushie mix in airtight containers. When ready to serve again, let it thaw slightly, then blend to refresh the slushy texture.
