Pink Lemonade Icee

Icees are so easy to make!  It seems CRAZY that I never thought to do a blog post about them until now!

Icee Syrup Ingredients
Homemade Icee Syrup

1 pkg unsweetened Kool-aid (any flavor)
1 c. sugar
3/4 c. tap water

In a saucepan combine water, sugar and Kool Aid Powder. Cook over medium/low heat until sugar is melted.  Stir.  Set aside to cool.  The syrup will thicken slightly as it cools.


Drizzle as much syrup as you like over shaved ice or snow.

Fresh Snow!

Winter Icee

To made a snow icee, scoop up fresh, clean snow.

Use a spoon to pack down the snow.

Scoop and pack snow until your container is full.

Ice shavers are cheap and easy to find.  I got mine from Target YEARS ago for less than $20.  It's so easy to operate that my kids use it to make icees for their friends.

If you forgot to make this syrup in advance, don't worry.  Make and cool this syrup quickly by placing it in the snow.

Pour hot syrup into a container.

Place the sealed container in the snow until chilled.

You can use this syrup to make fruit flavored soda (pop if you're from the midwest).

To make soda, drizzle icee syrup over ice cubes.

Tropical Punch Soda

Fill the glass with seltzer or ginger ale

Homemade Soda Pop

YUMMY Fruit Flavored soda pop!


Use flavored seltzer for an extra kick!  I recently discovered coconut flavored seltzer.  It makes our homemade soda taste like the cream soda from my childhood!
