Kids love it. Adults love it. It's a win-win. It's not too sweet, but you can add a bit of sugar to the mix to suit your tastes. I like the touch of mint that goes so well with the strawberries.

Sparkling strawberry-mint slush cooler recipe

What a way to stay cool this summer! This fruity and frosty drink is so delicious, and sugar is optional. You won't likely need it thanks to the frozen strawberries and hint of mint to keep things tasty.
