Fun Frozen Drinks

Everyone gets excited when you pull out a blender to mix a cool and tasty frozen drink. These fun, themed concoctions are perfect for parties or any occasion, and can be enjoyed by kids and adults alike. Berried Treasure Smoothies are more than just a play on words. Great Blue Sea Slushies are perfect for summertime at the pool, beach, or backyard. And finally, Blackbeard Shakes are a delicious, decadent dessert. Shiver me timbers!

Berried Treasure Smoothie

"X" marks the spot with chocolate syrup in this tasty smoothie. Fresh strawberries are "buried" under a creamy blend of banana and peanut butter flavors. Once your little pirates drink the yummy smoothie, they can dig out the sweet strawberries with a spoon. This healthy drink can be enjoyed as a breakfast, snack or even dessert. For an adults-only treat, substitute a chocolate or vanilla milkshake for the smoothie and add a splash of Kahlua on the strawberries and in the milkshake.

Smoothie Ingredients

Strawberries, chocolate syrup, bananas and greek yogurt.  Don't forget the peanut butter.

Great Blue Sea Slushie

Great Blue Sea Slushie

Enjoy Great Blue Sea Slushies at your pirate party, pool party, or for any occasion on a hot summer day. This simple recipe combines Pina Colada frozen drink mix with blue Hawaiian Punch. The stars of the drink are the red gummy Swedish Fish swimming in the blue ocean. To make a Great Blue Sea Slushie, follow these instructions:

  1. In a blender, mix 1/2 can of a 10 ounce pina colada frozen concentrated mixer, 2 cups of Hawaiian Punch Berry Blue Typhoon or Polar Blast, and 2 cups of ice. (The Berry Blue Typhoon flavor will give you a darker blue sea.)
  2. Pour slushie into a clear glass and add a few Swedish Fish.*
  3. For some grog, add rum, Matey!

* Since the Swedish Fish are small and a potential choking hazard, they should not be served to children three and under.

Blackbeard Shake

This frozen drink is dark and decadent since it was named after the infamous Blackbeard pirate. The brownie bottom represents the pirate's beard, and the cookie on top is his hat. Try serving this treat at a pirate birthday party for a change from traditional cake and ice cream. This drink is also a great dessert for all ages, on any day of the year. To make a Blackbeard Shake, follow these directions:

  1. Crumble one brownie and place in the bottom of a clear glass to serve as the pirate's beard.
  2. Make a vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry ice cream milkshake by blending 3-4 large scoops of ice cream and just enough milk to make a thick shake (about 3 tablespoons)
  3. Pour milkshake over brownie crumbles.
  4. Add half of a chocolate cookie on top of the milkshake for the pirate hat.
  5. Serve with a spoon and enjoy!
  6. Alcoholic version: Make with coffee ice cream and a splash of Amaretto or Kahlua. Fair winds, old salts!

Hi, cclitgirl. Blackbeard used to hang out in my area. I wonder how he liked the 100 degree weather. We might set a record today with this heat! Can't wait to read your Blackbeard hub.

Cynthia Calhoun from Western NC on June 30, 2012:

I'm finishing a hub about Blackbeard and I'm sooo linking to this. The Berried Treasure and Blue Sea Slushie have my mouth just watering and it makes me ache for the coolness of the sea, given that it's so hot this time of year. Yum, yum!! :D

Sarah Johnson (author) from Charleston, South Carolina on June 28, 2012:

Hi, cocopreme. I might have to make the Great Blue Sea Slushie again soon - we are looking at near 100 degree weather for the next several days........

These are really cute and they look delicious! I'll have to make them when I get the chance to have a pirate party. Great hub!

Hi, HawaiiHeart and Simone. I think you can use these for any occasion. But, yes, a pirate party would be fun!

Simone Haruko Smith from San Francisco on June 25, 2012:

ARRRRRgh! I want to have a pirate party just so I have an excuse to make these drinks!

How fun! What cool drinks to have for a pirate-themed party or even Halloween!

Okay, teaches12345 - I just put your order in! Hope you like dark chocolate brownies because that is what I used for the picture.

Dianna Mendez on June 20, 2012:

I'll have the blackbeard's drink. I love the look of the photo and the taste is one I prefer. A brownie makes it even more of a hit with me.
