Blueberry Rhubarb Slush - Cooking Up Clean

Blueberry Rhubarb Slush

 

rhubarb slush 

Unseasonably hot weather calls for cool slushy drinks. Am I right, or am I right?!  Plus, it’s pretty to look at and makes me feel like I have my own personal cabana boy serving me poolside at some tropical resort. That really would be more fabulous but, alas, I do not have that option right this moment so instead, I make Blueberry Rhubarb Slush! 

I’d like to say this is a bit healthier than your normal slush mix as I ditch the refined sugar that slush recipes usually call for and sub it out with coconut sugar.   I like the deeper flavor that coconut sugar has for something like this and it’s not overly sweet. In my opinion, rhubarb is supposed to be tart so I like to keep it that way and not kill its flavor with sweetness. If you don’t have coconut sugar, I think maple syrup or honey would make a good substitute. You can also make this a virgin blueberry rhubarb slush by just omitting the vodka.

Cheers!
