Mixed Berry Mint Slushies & Jenny’s Baby Shower

Mixed Berry Mint Slushies main

I made these mixed berry mint slushies for Jenny’s baby shower! I was so excited when Amanda and Marla reached to me and asked me to join in on a virtual baby shower to celebrate Jenny’s 3rd son who’s due to arrive soon!

Jenny is such a sweetheart, always has a smile and she has some mad baking skills! I have always wanted to try her Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies and her White Chocolate S’mores Gooey Cake Bars!

She along with a few other friends are pregnant right now and I can only imagine how uncomfortable it is with the heat being a little bit unbearable for us un-pregnant folk…so I thought I would come up with a fresh, cool and refreshing drink to enjoy. It’s chock full of berries and I used Katie’s mint-infused simple syrup, it’s easy to make and is a wonderful addition to this drink!

I know that Jenny is so excited! I hope Jenny was totally surprised and I wish we could all be there in person to help her celebrate! From far away, I’ll raise my slushie glass and say a huge congratulations to you, Jenny!

Mixed Berry Mint Slushies 2nd

I love, love the mint-infused simple syrup in this drink. It’s not too sweet and it adds another element of refreshment to the drink. You can use fresh fruit if you want but be sure to freeze them to add more to the iciness of the slushie.

I added orange juice because I didn’t want it to be pure ice and it’s the same ingredient we used when making raspberry sorbet smoothies when I worked at Haagen-Dazs back in the day.

    These are absolutely gorgeous! I’m growing mint and this would be the perfect way to use it–with fresh berries from the farmers market!
