Ever since I tried a watermelon slush at Bunn Mi, I’ve been thinking about recreating it. Nothing is more refreshing in the summer than cold, sweet watermelon. Oh wait, there is: watermelon slush!
It’s super easy to make, and such a delicious result. I’ll be craving it now on every warm day so it’s a good thing we love watermelon around here. Watermelons are in peak season so it’s the perfect time to create this delicious drink.
Keep reading to see the full instructions and recipe!
1. Start off with an extra ripe, sweet watermelon. They’re in peak season right now so take advantage of the sweetness and buy one to eat and one for slush.
2. Cut about 3 cups of watermelon into small chunks. It’s best to start with a seedless watermelon so you don’t have all the work of de-seeding it.
3. Squeeze a full lime in and add about a cup of ice, 1 T of sugar (if it’s really sweet you won’t need any sugar), and a T of water (if your blender is fancy you won’t even need the water)
4. Blend until smooth! Keep ice and water on hand if you need to add more to get the right slush consistency.
3 cups of sweet watermelon, de-seeded
1 cup of ice
1 T of sugar (optional)
1 T of water (optional)
Blend up and enjoy!
