Mmmmmmm.... Fresh cold watermelon on a hot summer's day. It's so refreshing. There's something about it that just screams summer. Watermelon is also a great way to give busy wild kids some extra hydration. You know what else helps keep them hydrated? A Watermelon slush. Or better yet, a watermelon limeade slush. It's icy cold and thick and tangy and watermelon-y and so. incredibly. delicious. With its gorgeous red color it could also make the perfect addition to a summer Independence Day party. Serve these up with some 4th of July Fruit Pizzas and Berry Salad for a really festive 4th of July spread.
Well guys, this might be the easiest thing you make that you serve at a party. It's a huge hit with everyone, and you can smile to yourself knowing that this crowd pleaser came together sooooo quickly. Watermelon + lime + a little bit of sugar is all you need. Who knew they'd be a match made in heaven? Not me!
How to Make a Watermelon Slush
First, start by cutting up a watermelon. To make 6 cups of slush, I used a little less than half of a 15 pound watermelon. Cut your watermelon into 2 inch cubes. Spread out on a parchment lined baking sheet and freeze for 4+ hours. You'll need 6 cups of cubed frozen watermelon and 4 cups of cubed refrigerated watermelon. After the watermelon is frozen, pour the lime juice on the bottom of your blender (8 cup capacity), followed by the refrigerated watermelon, then the frozen watermelon and the sugar.
It's important to use the refrigerated watermelon first so that everything blends up properly. If you put the frozen watermelon at the bottom, the blender will struggle blending it up. Blend until smooth then add the additional 2 cups of frozen watermelon. Serve and enjoy!Print
