My wife has been out of town for a week, and I have been making slurpees like crazy in my kitchen lab.

Here's recipes for frozen Lime juice, pineapple juice, peach juice, strawberry jusice, Grape Slurpee, and Dr. Pepper Slurpee... Enjoy!

Frozen Limeade

1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup key lime juice (from about 8 small key limes)
6 cups of crushed iced

How to Make It
Bring the water and sugar to a boil, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and cool. I call this sugar water in the recipes below.

Place limes in the microwave for 20 seconds on low power (or until they are just warm, not hot to the touch) then roll them around a few times on the counter, while pressing down with the palm of your hand.

Mix the sugar water, lime juice, and ice in a blender, and blend until well mixed and slushy. If your blender stalls out a bit, try short bursts and stir the whole thing up now and then as you blend. Make sure you turn it off before you stick the stir stick in!

Serve immediately in tall glasses.
