Last fall when the daylight was sparse and we found ourselves indoors by 4:30 PM every evening, I dubbed Friday as movie and snack night. My little girl was on board right away (shocker), and not having to think about supper at the end of a long week was music to my ears.

My husband and I have found it so fun to re-watch our favorite movies from childhood through the eyes of our own little one. Finding Nemo was one of my favorites so when I heard that Disney•Pixar’s Finding Dory was coming out this summer, you better believe it jumped to the top of our movie night queue!

But what’s a movie night without snacks?! We want to keep it simple but still have the evening feel like a special event. Enter this juice box slushy hack! Just freeze, cut, and enjoy! My little one couldn’t get enough. And as the days get longer and the sunshine warmer, you can bet we’ll be making lots of this fun summer treat. It’s perfect for birthday parties, backyard barbecues, and picnics. So grab some juice and get ready to impress your next play date!

Juice Box Slushy


  • Juice box
  • Scissors
  • Spoon or straw


  1. Place the juice box in the freezer (I found that 4 hours resulted in the perfect slushy texture).
  2. Use a pair of scissors to pop open the triangle folds on either side of the top of the box and cut the seal to open.

  3. Make one final slit down the middle seam and enjoy with a spoon right away, or let it sit for a few minutes and slurp with a straw!

Note: when creating your Juice Box Slushy, make sure no paper pieces fall in when you cut the package, and use clean scissors to avoid contamination.

Our freezer is sure to be stocked all summer long!
