Cover the blender container and process slowly at first, then revving up the speed until the ice has been completely crushed and drink is smooth.  Check for consistency and add more ice, process again until smooth.  Serve immediately!
NOTE: This recipe can be easily halved. Other frozen juice concentrates and frozen fruits can be substituted out for a variety of flavors.
