Even though the heat of summer is taking on a break (for a couple days, at least!), the Kelvin Slush truck is rolling around the city bringing us tasty, all-natural slushies that are definitely an upgrade from over-sugared convenience store versions.
I started following them on Twitter (@kelvinslush) and was a little too excited when I found out the big blue truck was parked near my office. The slushes are all custom made, starting with a base slush flavor then adding in mix-ins. I’m a sucker for anything ginger, so I got the ginger with guava and fresh mint. The combination was perfect - a hint of spice from the ginger and subtle sweetness from the guava mixed with refreshing pieces of mint. It reminded me of the canned guava juice I’d drink in Hawaii, but without the excessive sugar.
My coworker got a tea white peach and said it was delightful. Kelvin Slush also lets you add in a scoop of ice cream to make a float. Next time!
The flavors are constantly changing, so be sure to try as many combinations as you can!

(8/29) Correction- woops, posted the fruit mix-in as passion fruit, not pink guava. Got my tropical fruits mixed up!
