Hey guys! Friday’s here, the weekend is imminent and it’s time to take things easy. That’s exactly what I was thinking about when I came up with this dessert. I wanted something that could be thrown together in no time, but didn’t sacrifice in yumminess or flavor.

Also, I had about 12 limes in our fridge that needed to be used up :). Aren’t limes the best? I substitute limes for lemons whenever I can. I love that limes don’t have any seeds to worry about and could never get enough of the wonderful taste. With that being said, you could total use lemons if you’re not feeling the lime.

Few things are better than reading a good book outside, taking nightly walks with my hubby and enjoying some amazingly flavorful food. I just love going to the grocery store or farmer’s market and seeing all of the seasonal produce in full abundance. I can’t get enough.

I bought our first watermelon a few weeks back and happen to have picked the perfect one. Completely sweet and perfectly juicy. We couldn’t stop eating it.

I wanted ultimate sweetness without any added sugar and just had to add a couple of limes… subtle tartness with the sweet taste of watermelon and crushed ice make for one delectable slushie! [Read more…]
