Orange Slushy

Orange Slushy


- 1 cup of orange juice
- Lots of ice cubes
- 4 tbs regular table salt or sea salt crystals
- Two resealable bags – one small, one large
- A pair of gloves


1. Pour your orange juice into the smaller resealable bag. Make sure there is no air in the bag, and seal it up tight!
2. Put the sealed bag of orange juice inside the larger resealable bag. It should fit comfortably with lots of spare room!
3. Add ice cubes to the larger bag until the smaller bag is surrounded by ice.Then sprinkle your salt over the ice. Squeeze the air out of the bag and seal it up.
4. Put your gloves on and start squishing and shaking the bags.Get the mixture moving around as much as you can but be careful not to burst the bags.
5. After about 5 – 10 minutes, the orange juice in the small bag will turn into an icy orange slushy. Pour it into a glass and enjoy!

The Extreme Science Behind This:

Adding salt to ice lowers its freezing point, which means it melts much faster than usual.In order to melt, the ice needs to absorb energy – so it absorbs the heat energy from the orange juice – which is much warmer than the ice.As the ice absorbs all the heat from the orange juice, the orange juice starts to freeze!Which makes some Extreme Science and a tasty treat for you!
