watermelon slushie

When we went to Thailand last year, one of my favorite treats was a watermelon slushie. They were so simple and refreshing and just sweet enough. Well now that watermelons are in season, I thought I’d try to make one.

All I did was cut a small watermelon into little cubes, toss those in a blender, add a few cubes of ice and a little lime. I gave it all a whirl in the blender and tada, I had myself a whole lot of watermelon slushie. The result was pretty tasty and just perfect for a warm day, although not quite the same as the ones we had in Thailand. I had lots of extra, so I just poured it in and ice tray for later.

Have a great weekend! Cheers!

    I love these drinks. I know you can get them in Chinatown NYC. You can also add tapioca… This is a great way to use up watermelon.

    A great idea for a watermelon slushy is 2 cups watermelon, one cup strawberries, half a cup of fresh apple juice and some ice cubes. Delicious, refreshing and good for you!!
