This Berry Lime Slush is a cold, frosty summer drink that will keep your thirst quenched! It’s great for storing in the freezer and pulling out for surprise visitors, picnics and barbecues!
Cold, icy drinks are what summer is all about, right?
My mom used to make slush around the holidays, which might seem like a strange time considering that it is absolutely freezing here. But since this Strawberry Lemon Slush is pretty much the only recipe we use, I really wanted to experiment with another variation.
And since I know you love lime and berries, this was a natural second!
This Berry Lime Slush recipe is super simple and uses just a few ingredients — it is really just a combination of lime juice, berry punch, pureed strawberries and some sugar. I know the sugar might seem unnecessary, but it helps to keep the frozen mixture a little… less frozen? Sugar doesn’t freeze which means that you won’t have to wait quite as long to get a scoop out of the pail. And when the temperatures start to rise, this is important!
I highly recommend freezing the slush mixture in smaller containers so that you don’t have to take out the whole batch every time you just want one serving. You could use small 1 cup containers or even small freezer bags would work fine if you zip them up tight so they’re not leaking. This also means that you don’t have to wait as long for it to that partially, which, like I said, is important when it’s hot out!
If you want to lighten things up, feel free to mix with a sparkling water instead of soda.

Berry Lime Slush Recipe
- 1 can lime concentrate
- 1 can berry punch concentrate
- 2 cups fresh or frozen strawberries
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 10 cups of water
- Lemon Lime soda or sparkling water
- In a blender, combine concentrates, strawberries and sugar and puree until smooth.
- Stir in water (this recipe will fit perfectly in a 4L ice cream pail if you have an empty one laying around).
- Freeze. I like to do this in smaller 1-2 cup containers so it’s easy to take out 1 or 2 servings, but you can freeze it in one large batch if you desire.
- Remove from the freezer 1-2 hours before serving (depending on the size of your containers — smaller will thaw more quickly). Spoon into glasses and fill cup with lemon lime soda or sparkling water.

This slushy looks SO refreshing and pretty, Ashley! It’s been so hot here and I can’t think of a better combo than berry and lime to cool down with 🙂 I love that you freeze this in small batches too!

Slushies + 100 degree heat = pure bliss in the desert heat!! We love all sorts of slushies around here and this one looks so good. Love the berry lime flavor’s. Lime is so refreshing during the summer months, so I know this drink would taste amazing. Can’t wait to make it for the kids.
What size cans of the frozen concentrates do you use?
Ashley Fehr says
They are about 12oz.
Thank you. So many recipes still call for the 6 oz cans which I can’t find any more. Can’t wait to try this one

I’ve never made a slushy — can you believe it? I know this is the flavor combination to start with because I love lime and berries together! This looks so refreshing!
I love slushies, especially during the summer! I feel like I could literally just sit there and drink them all day. This version looks absolutely perfect, Ashley!

Slushies are pretty much the best! I make them quite often in the summer and love cooling down with one on a hot day. And you really can’t find a drink recipe that’s easier to make! Love this berry lime version, Ashley!
