his 4th of July, beat the heat with a frosty red, white, and blue drink that's as much fun to make as it is to slurp. Made with fruit, these patriotic slushies are tasty and nutritious. Kids mash up the fresh or frozen strawberries, blueberries, pears and bananas and as one mom from Ohio pointed out, "It's another fruit serving in one day."
To keep in the holiday spirit, sing or hum some traditional patriotic songs like "The Star Spangled Banner," "Battle Hymn of the Republic," and "America the Beautiful" while mashing the fruit; you can make a family game out of seeing who remembers all the words. Old Glory never tasted so good!
