Skinny Cherry Limeade Slushies

Skinny Cherry Limeade Slushies

After cooling off with some S’mores Fudge Pops, celebrating National Cheesecake Day with my Strawberry Lime Cheesecake Bars and enjoying a slice or two of my Glazed Peach Bread each morning. I decided I would make these Skinny Cherry Limeade Slushies before I go into a sugar coma!

And it made a perfect drink after a fun day in the sun at the waterpark with my parents and brother who are here to visit us this week. I didn’t tell my Dad that this was a “skinny” drink because then he wouldn’t drink it. He always says skinny drinks are for girls, but little did he know, he had about four or five of these delicious “skinny girl” drinks. 😉
