Now, this beverage is the simplest and tastiest beverage for summers. What is SLUSH actually? As tough as it sounds, it is not at all complicated. Slush is nothing but a flavored frozen drink. What can be better than consuming ice, that too flavored ice to quench your thirst during the super hot summers. Slush, whose Indian version is better known as GOLA, is very easy to prepare at home. I prepared this recipe for the first time today and it came out so well that I decided to share it over here immediately.Slush is non-carbonated drink, hence it does not require any pressure chamber for production. That is the reason its so cheap. Its actually so simple, just pour flavoring over crushed ice and it is ready to consume :). To prepare it at home, you just need a powerful blender to crush the ice, no worries if you don’t have it, you can always hammer them and then put in the blender. I never thought mango slush could be so yummy. The ginger and lemon flavoring do wonders in the mango slush. You will need little bit of ginger juice for which you can grate the ginger with a fine shredder first and then squeeze out the juice from it. Rest of the steps are simple, so lets get started with directions 🙂 🙂

The hint of ginger and lemon made my day and I am sure it will do the same for you as well. Just try it out if you are trying to struggle with the hot summers, it will be worth. One more thing, don’t be in a hurry when trying, enjoy it slowly with the slow melting ice 😀 :D. Do prepare and let me know… XOXO!!
