Watermelon Slushy Summer Drink

One of my favorite fruits is watermelon! I have it nearly everyday in the summer time. I like it plain, with a pinch of salt or with feta cheese and mint leaves cut up in a bowl, it is amazing. Another way I like it, especially on a very hot summer day is as a slushy drink!

I cut the watermelon up in chunks and put it in the freezer until firm NOT frozen, about 15-20 minutes will do. You could mix the watermelon with ice in the blender but I feel it waters down the taste.

After the watermelon is firm, place the chunks in a blender with some fresh squeezed lime juice. If your watermelon is ripe and super sweet, you don’t need to add anything else. If you have a watermelon that is less sweet you can add some honey or maple syrup to sweeten.

Of course it makes it more special if you pour it into a fancy glass and add some lime garnish! This is a very refreshing drink for the summer months.
