One of the easiest and most refreshing slushies you can make at home. This is a summer must!
Hello again! Can I just take a second to tell you how much I’m loving summer so far?! 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.
With only a quarter of said watermelon left, I needed to try my hand at a homemade watermelon slushie. I’ve seen them all over the internets lately and knew immediately that I had to whip up my own version as soon as I came across the perfect watermelon.
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!
That’s right – 3 simple ingredients are all you need to create this concoction. Fun in a glass for adults and kids alike.
I already know that this will be a summer staple for us from now on. It’s an addiction that I’m looking to nurture all summer long. Nothing beats a fresh and healthy drink that satisfies a serious sweet tooth!
Did I mention how much I love summer? Besides watermelon, I can’t help but notice that homemade popsicles are all the rage right now. I came this close to buying my own popsicle mold the other day and get in on the craze. I am pretty sure I would go overboard creating all kinds of (hopefully) yummy flavors. What do you think? Yay or nay when it comes to homemade popsicles?
Alright, here’s to a fabulous start to yet another week.
- 3 cups seedless watermelon, cut into chunks
- 1 1/2 cups ice
- 1-2 freshly squeezed limes (depending on how much lime flavor you prefer)
- 1. Place watermelon chunks and ice into your blender. Puree until smooth and no chunks remain. Add freshly squeezed lime juice and give it a quick pulse. Serve in a tall glass and enjoy!
- Watermelon Lime Slushie is best enjoyed immediately.
