Watermelon Slushie

This bright and beautiful Watermelon Slushie will blow your mind at first sip! It's super refreshing, sweet and a bit tangy -- the perfect summertime treat!

Watermelon is at its peak right now in many parts of the country. We've been getting one (or two or three!) of these big, green melons each week at the farmers market and they keep getting better and better. I wanted to make something with the stars of summertime produce and thought about Watermelon Slushies and they might be my new favorite!

Making these slushies couldn't be easier considering they're only three ingredients and one of those is ice! All you do is cut up a ripe watermelon into chunks and freeze them. Toss them into your blender with the juice of one lime and some ice and voila! You've made yourself a refreshing summertime treat that will instantly transport you to a tropical vacation. This recipe truly took me 5 minutes to make and when I took a sip I couldn't believe how delicious it was considering how simple it was. 

My kids are obsessed with watermelon. They can't wait until the time of year when they're ripe and ready to eat. I've made tons of watermelon recipes over the years like Watermelon PizzaSummer Fruit and Mozzarella Salad and Watermelon Fries but this one might be my favorite. The kids LOVED these little slushies and devoured them so fast! 

I love watermelon during the summer because they're about 90% water, so they're a great snack for keeping hydrated during the hot days by the pool or at the park. They're also a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth because of they're natural sugars and are high in fiber. They're just an all around great fruit to add into your summer routine. 

So, what do you think? Will you be adding these Watermelon Slushies to your summer snack list?
