St. Patrick’s Day Edible Slime Recipe
Edible slime recipe made from just a few ingredients! Who knew this could make stretchy, fun slime!
What you need:
1 c. warm water
1 package of green powdered drink mix
Green food coloring
What to do:
Place the warm water and 1 tbs. Of powdered fiber supplement in a large microwave safe bowl. The mixture will rise in the microwave, so make sure it has room to do so in the bowl. Be careful to use a fiber supplement like Metamucil that has psyllium as an ingredient, as that is what makes the slime form.
Add one package of green powdered drink mix to the bowl and stir until completely dissolved. This will add additional scent to your slime and give it some color other than orange. If you would like a deeper color of green, add some food coloring.
Place the mixture in the microwave and cook for 4 minutes. If your microwave is greater than 1,100 watts, you might want to put the mixture in for just 3 minutes. Take the mixture out and stir well.
Place the mixture back into the microwave and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Stir the mixture again and set it off to the side to cool. The slime will look like water at first, but as it cools down, it will start to take shape.
Once cooled, you can play with your slime. This slime does leave some residue behind on your hands, but it does not color your hands, and it is easily washed off with warm water.
