Super stretchy and tastes just like the classic summer drink — this edible Lemonade Slime is sweet sensory fun!
Edible Lemonade Slime
Summertime and lemonade go hand in hand!
Since we love to make all sorts of edible slime recipes for every occasion, it was only a matter of time until we created Lemonade Slime!
Our family mostly drinks water, but every now and then we enjoy a treat — forget soda…it’s all about lemonade! (Funny enough, when I was pregnant I craved Chic-Fil-A lemonade!)
This Lemonade Slime tastes just like the drink, or even Lemonheads candy (remember those??)
It’s hours of taste-safe sensory play and can be made with 4 simple kitchen ingredients.
Why Edible Slime?
If you’ve seen the slime recipes circulating on social media, then you’ve likely noticed that many of them contain harsh ingredients like borax. These can be irritating to sensitive hands, and they’re not the best idea for toddlers or young kids that still like to taste-test everything they play with.
However, slime is a wonderful sensory activity and very soothing for kids (and grown-ups too!) Our edible slime recipes like this Lemonheads Slime are all simple and made with safe, food-based ingredients that are easy to find. In fact, you might already have many of the items we used in your own kitchen!
Lemonade Slime Ingredients
How to Make Lemonade Flavored Marshmallow Slime
Place marshmallows in a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 60 seconds. Stir in coconut oil while marshmallows are still hot. (Caution, bowl may also be hot – adults should handle this step).
Add cornstarch and lemonade mix to bowl, stirring until slime thickens. Finish kneading by hand, adding more cornstarch one spoonful at a time until slime no longer sticks to your hands (if necessary).
Slime Storage Tips
- Keep refrigerated in an airtight container for 2-3 days.
- Always wash hands before playing with slime to help keep it clean/
- Since this is a food item, it is perishable; check for signs of mold before reusing.
