Watermelon slushy

Two weeks ago I bought a seedless watermelon for about $3.00 at the store. Mike put it in the fridge and, I don’t know, but it must have partially frozen in there or something, because when I cut it open it was too mushy. Still tasty, but mushy. So I scooped it out, cubed it, put it in ziplock bags, and froze it. OMG, I am going to buy a watermelon every week and freeze it until they are out of season…

  1. Take out your baggie of frozen watermelon cubes and let it soften up for about 15 minutes.
  2. Put into a blender with some  lime juice, limeade or lemonade.
  3. Bend until smooth.
  4. Refrain from chugging, unless you enjoy brain freeze.

Variations and add-ins:

  • A small sprig of fresh mint or basil
  • A jigger of vodka or rum

If you want sorbet instead, see this recipe.  And if you’re looking for something more lush try this  watermelon-coconut ice cream.
