How To Make A Self Freezing Slushy

15 Jul

This is seriously so cool! There is a YouTube video about how to make a self freezing slushy. At first I couldn’t believe it, even though there it was right before my eyes. Could it really be that easy? All it requires is a 20 ounce bottle of soda.

Any soda. Anything carbonated. No fancy machine, no special freezer. How to make a self freezing slushy, no machine! Self Freezing! Granted, stopping in at the local gas station market is cheaper. You can’t beat 59 cents! A 20 ounce bottle of soda runs about 1.58 here at Wal-Mart. A lot cheaper to just stop in at the gas station. However! The little markets don’t always have the flavor of soda of your choice, right? So you can weigh your options here. Dirt cheap, or taste bud friendly. Enough jibber-jabber! You ready to see? (and no, I did not give my toddler Dr. Pepper Slushy.)

How To Make A Self Freezing Slushy


Step 1:

Grab your soda of choice.
I chose to make a homemade Dr. Pepper Slushy. You can do any homemade slushy; Sprite, Coke, Diet Coke, Sunkist. Anything Carbonated.

Step 2:

Shake it violently.
Shake it as hard as you can as fast as you can. Build up the carbonation pressure as much as you can. You’ll know it is done when it stops make the loud swishing sound.

Step 3:

Put it in your home freezer upright. Try not to lay it on it’s side. If it falls, it won’t be the end of the world it will just make it harder to pour out. This part is important: Freeze it for 3 hours and 15 minutes. Exactly. When that time is up, pull it out. Quickly (I stress quickly) open and shut the cap. It lets just a small amount of air inside. Tip your bottle upside down and back. Then open the cap and pour it into a cup or bowl. Watch it turn slush right before your eyes! It is amazing! The kids loved it.

This is a fun summer project for kids who are stuck inside from the heat! Let them shake the heck out of it, and then magically before their eyes (cough, 3 hours later) it becomes a slushie!
