Pineapple-Mint Slushie

Today, I have the perfect summer drink. Refreshing, ice cold, light, fruity. And it's all that sounds good to me right now. 

I'm in the waiting game... waiting for our little girl to arrive. That feeling that every day of work will be the last I'll have before she comes. In court today I pictured my water breaking right there, in my suit jacket. Each night we think it may be the last night we fall asleep before she is here. And did I ever mention I am NOT a patient person?! 

My stomach has no more room. And with the summer heat, fruity and drinkable things are all that sound good. Lately it's been this pineapple slushie. My husband started making me this a few weeks ago as a "mocktail" to his boozy version. Well, I was hooked and now I crave it all the time. 

It's fruity, minty and with a hint of lime - I think you'll all love it!

  1. In a high-speed blender (such as a Vitamix), blend all of the ingredients until smooth. If it's hard to blend, add more ice water to loosen it up. Blend until it is a slushy consistency.
