Summer is the perfect time to load up on sweet frozen snacks. Opting for an ice pop is one way to go, but there's something about a slushie that feels utterly nostalgic. Unfortunately, most fruit slushies contain artificial colors and sweeteners. To satisfy those childhood cravings without the additives, mbg developed a two-ingredient version, using organic veggies+ greens powder as the star.  

Make healthy 2-ingredient slushies. 

All that you need to make a nutritious and refreshing slushie at home, is water (or another liquid of choice), organic veggies+ greens powder, an ice cube tray, and a blender.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cold water (or beverage of choice) 
  • 2 tablespoons organic veggies+

Method 

  1. Pour cold liquid and greens powder into a mixer.
  2. Shake together until well mixed.
  3. Pour into ice cube trays, freeze until semisolid (this will help with that slushie-like texture).
  4. Blend until it reaches desired consistency.

Convenience is key on a hot day when you want a refreshing drink, STAT. Good news: It’s super easy to make a healthy slushie or smoothie at home. All you have to do is blend 2 tbsp of your favorite greens powder (I love organic veggies+ from @mindbodygreen for this) with 2 cups of water or other liquid and pour into ice cube trays. You can scale up using 1 tbsp per cup of liquid. Once they’re frozen, you can throw those cubes into the blender alone for or add to a smoothie. Pro tip: For a slushie, you may want to add extra liquid. Not like I learned that one the hard way anything 😉 ⁣ Read more about this healthy 2-ingredient slushie via the link in my bio or https://bit.ly/3idMer2 ⁣ ⁣ #healthylifestyle #mindbodygreen #healthyathome #greensmoothie #greenslushie #mealprep #foodhack #greenjuice #frozendrinks #slushie #summerdrinks #hydrate

What are the benefits of this green slushie?

Yes, you can simply mix a scoop of organic veggies+ with water, coconut water, or a plant-based milk of choice. However, freezing the mixture and transforming it into a healthy, delicious slushie is a great way to mix things up, says registered dietitian Jess Cording, M.S., R.D., CDN. Plus, it's a fun and convenient way to sneak veggies into your daily diet, she adds.

The ingredients in organic veggies+ include hard-to-find sea vegetables, like kelp, chlorella, and spirulina, as well as dark leafy greens. Along with the omega-3 fatty acids from the sea veggies, the powder contains a fiber blend of flaxseed and inulin, making the slushie a refreshing yet satiating snack. 

While veggies are the focus, this greens powder also contains a fruit antioxidant blend. This includes berries, acai, and cranberries, which balance the vegetal flavor of the powder and help manage inflammation.*

Overall, organic veggies+ is high in vitamins and minerals, like iron and potassium, and low in sugar (2 g per serving).* It's also worth noting this slushie is vegan, soy-free, gluten-free, and Whole30 approved®, making it friendly for a wide range of allergy and dietary needs. 

When craving a nostalgic and nutritious summer snack, this two-ingredient slushie is the perfect fix.
