Storage and Freezing
Here's the scoop: Gatorade Slushies are best enjoyed fresh. Unfortunately, they don't store well, so it's best to whip them up when you're ready to savor the icy goodness.
Wondering why sugar is in the mix? It's the secret ingredient that keeps the ice smooth and slurpable. Trust us, you don't want a slushie you can't sip!
Absolutely! While we recommend granulated options for the best texture, feel free to experiment with your favorite sugar substitute.
Unfortunately, Gatorade Slushies are best enjoyed right after blending. They tend to lose their slushie texture if stored for too long.
While Gatorade is the classic choice, any electrolyte-rich sports drink will do the trick. Feel free to explore different brands and flavors to find your favorite.
