Frosty fruit punch slush

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Frosty fruit punch slush

1 cup ice cubes (about 8 or 9), crushed
1/2 teaspoon sugar-free, fruit punch flavor drink mix (use more or less as desired or try other flavors for variety)
1/4 cup cold water

To crush ice with minimal mess, put cubes in a zip-top storage bag, push the air out, and seal the bag. Place the bag on the counter and hit it with a rolling pin or a meat mallet until ice is in small pieces. Put ice into a blender. Sprinkle drink mix over ice and add the water. Cover and blend until smooth and icy; stirring 2-3 times during blending. Serve immediately with a spoon and a straw.
