It’s been a billion degrees here the last few weeks, and we’ve all been melting. We’ve been flying through water and popsicles, but I wanted the kids to have something a little healthier to help keep them cool. Annabel loves watermelon, so I made her a watermelon slushie drink — and I added some Prosecco into a glass for myself to make a watermelon cooler!
1 – 3 pounds of seedless Watermelon
This is so easy to make. You can either chop up your own watermelon, or buy it already cut into chunks (make sure it’s seedless!). Put three-quarters of the watermelon chunks into the freezer. When they’re frozen, place all the watermelon (frozen and unfrozen) into a blender. Squeeze in the juice of 1-2 limes (depending on how tart you’d like your drink). Blend it up, then pour into a glass—and don’t forget to garnish with a lime and fun straw!
If you’d like to make yours alcoholic, fill a glass 1/3 of the way with Prosecco, then pour in the watermelon slush. Top off with a little more Prosecco, then use a straw to stir.
Annabel and I put away an entire watermelon yesterday! James, on the other hand, was not so sure.
Any questions, let me know. Have fun!
This looks so refreshing. Off to the grocery store.
Yum, that looks awesome!
Have you tried zoku quick pops? We make a watermelon mint popsicle with lime that is amazing! What’s fun about zoku is you can take any fruit or smoothie and turn it into a popsicle in 7-10 minutes, it’s a big hit in our house.
I tried this tonight except I threw in a bunch of vodka in the blender, blended the poop outta it and then topped it with club soda.
Super yummy although I recommend measuring. . . somehow I was left feeling tipsy.
I appreciate you for this refreshing watermelon drink making process!
It looks healthier and super yummy. Along with it, I recommend others to try this slushie at home in summer days.
