The ICEE Deluxe Slushy Machine is a neat little machine to make a slushy at home. We got one to check out and it worked out really easy. I got the machine ready and supervised the process, but I let our 7 and 3 year old take care of grinding the ice and setting up the ICEE making area.
Do not let little ones do this alone because there are very sharp blades inside. Kaila did a good job following my directions and needed a little help to put the top back on after filling it with ice. Make sure not to put too much ice in. Check out our slideshow for a picture walk-through of ICEE making magic.
After the handle popped up from the ice, she began to turn it making shaved ice with ease. Even our 3 year old got in on the action. I let them both do their own cups. While they were making their ICEE ice, I prepared the ICEE syrup. It is just the mixing powder and water, and was tasty. You can buy extra packets of ICEE syrup mix with an assortment of different ICEE flavors.
After we made 2 cups of ICEE’s, we let them sit out in the warm weather and enjoy them. They loved it!
We were given a machine to review.
