Pina Colada Granita and a Giveaway!

Wednesday, July 2, 2014

With the temps and humidity finally climbing in Minnesota, I have found my pregnant self craving frosty, cold treats.  Let's be honest, my body still associates feeling nauseous all the time (yes, I am 31 weeks pregnant today and still face "morning sickness" all day) with being hung-over so I'm not craving a beer, but cold treats, yes!  

I was sent this Pina Colada Slush Drink Mix from Tastefully Simple and knew that it would be the ticket.  I made a simple Pina Colada Granita with it and it really hit the spot.  Here is how I did it...

The drink mix comes in it's own little bucket so all you have to do is rinse it out
Pour in the mix
Add water
And stir until it is completely dissolved
I popped it into the freezer over night
And the next day had a brick of Pina Colada
Which I then scraped the heck out of with a fork
Spooned it into an adorable little glass and went to town
It had the perfect consistency of a shaved ice and the taste of the tropics.  I am so happy I have a bucket of this ready to scrape and enjoy at will!

There are a few other recipes on the bucket and at using the drink mix that, yes, include alcohol for all of you folks who like to booze it up!

But, how about a little giveaway to really kick off this summer season!?  Tastefully Simple has generously offered their Triple the Fun drink bucket mixes for a little giveaway!  How fun is this!?  One winner will receive this prize pack of Lovin' Lemon Slush Drink Mix, Juicy Watermelon Margarita Mix and Mango Breeze Margarita Mix!  These are perfect for the hot summer evenings after work or for entertaining!  Just enter below and I will pick a winner the evening of Monday, July 7th.  Please note that you will need to respond to my email saying you won within 24 hours or I will pick a new winner!

Good luck and HAPPY SUMMER!
