Last summer Jack and I were at a play date and one of my friends made us watermelon slushies. They were so refreshing and delicious, I decided it would have to become a regular summer treat at our house. So now that watermelons are back in season, I have been making this for Jack and me all the time.
Here is what you will need to do:
- Freeze cubed watermelon in zip top freezer bags. I usually freeze half of each watermelon I buy and use the other half to eat on it's own. This way you are not stuck with way too much watermelon!
- Place about 2-4 cups of frozen watermelon in a blender. You may have to use a knife to break the pieces apart.
- Add 1-2 cups of water or coconut water and about 1-2 tablespoons of sugar.
- Blend together until smooth. You may need to add more water as you go.
This is a wonderful, healthy treat, perfect for a warm summer day!
