Watermelon Slushy – This sweet drink is one of my frozen summer favorites. You can make this slushy in 5 minutes. It is the perfect sweet treat to enjoy after a long day in the summer heat!
Watermelon, watermelon, watermelon!
Summer is officially here! This means ripe fruit at the grocery store, my favorite time of year. Watermelon, blueberries, peaches, strawberries, blackberries, nectarines, apricots, plums, you name it, I want it!
Watermelon is queen right now!
But there is only one way to eat it, right? Just cut it up and snack away.
Watermelon can be used in savory salads with feta, cucumber and basil, made into fruit salsa or used as a crust to a delectable, lightened up dessert pizza.
My current favorite? This tasty watermelon slushy! Plus, it is super quick to make. Perfect for after a long day outside. Here’s what you need to know about this watermelon drink:
- I bought my watermelon juice for this recipe at Target. I haven’t been able to find the stuff anywhere else. Target never lets me down!
- Can’t find watermelon juice? Try lemonade! Watermelon lemonade sounds like my next quintessential summer drink!
- As always, you could definitely make this into an adult drink. A little tequila, triple sec and more lime juice, for example. Margarita’s anyone?
- If you don’t have time to freeze your watermelon, use half ice and half fresh watermelon. It won’t be quite as rich in flavor, but still a winner!
I like to whip out fun and versatile drink recipes like this when I have people over.
